Dependent Probability Spaces
Edwards, William F.; Shiflett, Ray C.; Shultz, Harris
College Mathematics Journal, v39 n3 p221-226 May 2008
The mathematical model used to describe independence between two events in probability has a non-intuitive consequence called dependent spaces. The paper begins with a very brief history of the development of probability, then defines dependent spaces, and reviews what is known about finite spaces with uniform probability. The study of finite dependent spaces with non-uniform probabilities is then introduced. The paper concludes with an investigation of infinite spaces.
