A 22-year-old client asks you the following question: "I would like to set up my own insurance policy by opening a trust account into which I can make monthly payments starting now, so that upon my death or my ninety-fifth birthday - whichever comes sooner - the trust can be expected to be worth $500,000. How much should I invest each month?" Assuming a 5% rate of return on investments, how should you respond? To answer the question on the previous page, we must know something about the probability of the client's dying at various ages. There are so many possible ages to consider (particularly since we should consider the possibilities month by month) that it would be easier to treat his age at death as a continuous variable, one that can take on any real value (between 22 and 95 in this case). The mathematics needed to do probability and statistics with continuous variables is calculus. The material on statistics in this resource will be readily accessible to you if you are familar with derivatives and integrals (through Chapter 6 of

  • Specialty Functions
  • Gamma Function Beta Function The Binomial Distribution is used in finite sampling problems where each observation is one of two possible outcomes ("success" or "failure"). The binomial distribution has two parameters:
  • n = the sample size, and = P("success").
  • Example: To assure quality of a product, a random sample of size 25 is drawn from a process. The number of defects ( X ) found in the sample is recorded. The random variable X follows a binomial distribution with n = 25 and = P(product is defective). Technical Details

    The Poisson Distribution is used for modeling rates of occurrence. The Poisson distribution has one parameter:
  • = the rate (mean).
  • Example: A process that creates fabric is monitored. If the number of defects ( X ) per meter of fabric exceeds 5 then the process is stopped for diagnosis. The random variable X follows a Poisson distribution with = number of defects per meter of fabric.

    An interactive module covering basic probability, random variables, moments, distributions, data analysis including regression, moving averages, exponential smoothing, and clustering. Defense Acquisition University.
    This module is an interactive tutorial which gives a comprehensive view of Probability and Statistics. This interactive module covers basic probability, random variables, moments, distributions, data analysis including regression, moving averages, exponential smoothing, and clustering. The Probability and Statistics refresher module is intended for use by DAU course participants. for assistance. The weblike arrangement of the tutorial enables the user to browse randomly from topic to topic. A knowledgeable user will be able to skip subtopics or proceed directly to an area of particular interest. CAUTION TO THE NOVICE USER: The weblike form of this tutorial tempts the user to follow each link offered and, thus, lose the thread of the subtopic originally begun. So it is advisable to limit random browsing from topic to topic when first using the tutorial. The subway lines are provided to help the user stay on the topic thread. In addition, note that the browser provides a way to backtrack through the pages seen using the "Back" button. The user is strongly encouraged to return to this page, the "Stat Home Page", from any point in the tutorial to leave a comment for the developers of the tutorial. (Click on "Comments" below.)

    Probability provides a mathematical description of randomness. A phenomenon is called random if the outcome of an experiment is uncertain. However, random phenomena often follow recognizable patterns. This long-run regularity of random phenomena can be described mathematically. The mathematical study of randomness is called probability theory

On the Clarification of an Explicandum By the procedure of explication we mean the transformation of an inexact, prescientific concept, the explicandum, into a new exact concept, the explicatum. Although the explicandum cannot be given in exact terms, it should be made as clear as possible by informal explanations and examples. The task of explication consists in transforming a given more or less inexact concept into an exact one or, rather, in replacing the first by the second. We call the given concept (or the term used for it) the explicandum , and the exact concept proposed to take the place of the first (or the term proposed for it) the explicatum . The explicandum may belong to everyday language or to a previous stage in the development of scientific language. The

    Outcome Sample Space Event Relative Frequency ... Back to Main Contents Outcome An outcome is the result of an experiment or other situation involving uncertainty. The set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment is called a sample space. Sample Space The sample space is an exhaustive list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment. Each possible result of such a study is represented by one and only one point in the sample space, which is usually denoted by S. Examples 1. Experiment Rolling a die once: 2. Experiment Tossing a coin: 3. Experiment Measuring the height (cms) of a girl on her first day at school: Sample space S = the set of all possible real numbers Event An event is any collection of outcomes of an experiment. Formally, any subset of the sample space is an event. Any event which consists of a single outcome in the sample space is called an elementary or simple event. Events which consist of more than one outcome are called compound events. Set theory is used to represent relationships among events. In general, if A and B are two events in the sample space S, then:

    AutoClass C - General Information
    Contents What Is AutoClass AutoClass is an unsupervised Bayesian classification system that seeks a maximum posterior probability classification. Key features:
    • determines the number of classes automatically;
    • can use mixed discrete and real valued data;
    • can handle missing values;
    • processing time is roughly linear in the amount of the data;
    • cases have probabilistic class membership;
    • allows correlation between attributes within a class;
    • generates reports describing the classes found; and
    • predicts "test" case class memberships from a "training" classification.
    AutoClass uses only vector valued data, in which each instance to be classified is represented by a vector of values, each value characterizing some attribute of the instance. Values can be either real numbers, normally representing a measurement of the attribute, or they can be discrete, one of a countable attribute dependent set of such values, normally representing some aspect of the attribute.

    Probability/Statistics Object Library
    The Probability/Statistics Object Library contains applets and the components of the applets for use by teachers and students of probability and statistics. These objects (both executable files and source code) can be downloaded, modified if desired, and reused. The objects are divided into three packages . In the list on the left, click on the name of a package to see a list of the objects in the package.
    The applets in this project are small, self-contained programs that run in web pages. They are intended to illustrate concepts and techniques from probability and statistics in an interactive, dynamic way. A teacher or student can download an applet, drop it in a web page, and then add other elements of her own choice (such as expository text, data sets, and graphics). The applets in the library contain no explicit mathematical exposition and thus can be used by students at various levels (with appropriate guidance from the instructor). The applets are intended to be small "micro worlds" where students can run virtual versions of random experiments and play virtual versions of statistical games. No knowledge of programming in general or Java in particular is required to use the applets. The applets are the top level objects in the library, and are in the
