Sample space

fur­ther points

Children:

  • Sample spaces are too large

    Sam­ple spaces are of­ten large, so it is hard to do prob­a­bil­is­tic com­pu­ta­tions us­ing a raw dis­tri­bu­tion over the sam­ple space.

  • Uncountable sample spaces are way too large

    We can’t define prob­a­bil­ity dis­tri­bu­tions over un­countable sam­ple spaces by just as­sign­ing num­bers to each point in the sam­ple space.
