### Course Objectives

An introduction to the theory of probability up to the weak law of large numbers

### Course Content

- BASIC PROBABILITY: probability space, sets and elementary operations, Venn diagragms, basic axioms, inclusion-exclusion formula, enumeration principle
and generalized enumeration principle, uniform probability spaces, permutations and combinations, conditional probability, disintegration formula, Bayes Formula, independence.
