This chapter introduces the necessary concepts of probability theory for discrete random events, which is then used in Chapter 4. The problems at the end of the chapter emphasize computational methods, which are extremely helpful in developing intuition about the properties of random variables.

Keywords:   probability theory, discrete random events, random variables, computational methods
