Topics: Probability


In the Laplacian (classic) approach of probability, given an event, the probability of is defined as:


When trying to determine the probability of geometric events, then refers to the length/area/volume/etc. where occurs and refers to the total length/area/volume/etc.

For example, let’s say we throw a die on a circle of radius . Let be “the die falls closer to the circle’s centre point than to the circumference”. Then:
