Introduction to Probability Theory, Algebra, and Set Theory

MCMP at First Sight (Video Abstract)

Catrin Campbell-Moore & Sebastian Lutz (MCMP/LMU) present a video abstract of their "Introduction to Probability Theory, Algebra, and Set Theory" on "MCMP at First Sight". About the lecture at the MCMP Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students (27 July to 2 August, 2014): This introductory lecture provides an overview of basic algebra and set theory that will serve as the basis for the main lecture streams on individual and collective decision theory, agent-based modeling, and epistemic logic. We will introduce the idea of a variable, algebraic operations on variables, and some basic set theory, e.g. union, complementation, domains, ranges, and functions. We will also give an introduction into basic probability theory, such as the characteristics of stochastic variables and independence of stochastic variables, among other issues.
