Description: # Measure Theory Measure theory is one of the most important analysis in theoretical probability. But what is measure theory? Why is it so important to theoretical probability? How does it work? Where can measure theory be applied? These are common questions that would ring your brain and the objective of this notebook is not only to try and answer the above questions, but also to convince and build an interest in continuing learning about measure theory. ### What is a Measure?

Description: # Independent Events Consider the example of drawing a ball from a bucket consisting of many different colored balls. For simplicity, consider that there are only two different colored balls - 6 Green balls and 4 Red balls, 10 balls in total. Now draws can be made in two different ways: * with replacement - The ball drawn in every single draw is kept back into the bucket, keeping the total number of balls and mixture of colored balls constant, from draw to draw.

Description: # Conditional Probability Conditional Probability is a key concept in Probability Theory. If there are two events A and B, the conditional probability of an event B is the probability that the event will occur given the knowledge that an event A has already occurred. The conditional probability is specified as P(B|A) or probability of B given A (meaning the probabilty of event B given event A has already occured).

Description: # Discrete Distributions or Probability Mass Functions (PMFs) Probability distribution is a function that generates the probabilities of occurrence of all possible outcomes in an experiment. Consider an experiement of rolling of the die. If the random variable X is used to denote the outcome of the die roll, then the probability distribution of X would take the value $\frac{1}{6}$ for $X \to \{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6\}$.
