**Probability-generating function**— In probability theory, the probability generating function of a discrete random variable is a power series representation (the generating function) of the probability mass function of the random variable. Probability generating functions are… …52

**Probability measure**— In some cases, statistical physics uses probability measures, but not all measures it uses are probability measures.[1][2] In mathematics, a probability measure is a real valued function defined on a set …53

**Probability amplitude**— In quantum mechanics, a probability amplitude is a complex valued function that describes an uncertain or unknown quantity. For example, each particle has a probability amplitude describing its position. This amplitude is the wave function,… …54

**Probability metric**— A probability metric is a function defining a distance between random variables or vectors. In particular the probability metric does not satisfy the identity of indiscernibles condition required to be satisfied by the metric of the metric… …55

**Probability plot**— The probability plot is a graphical technique for assessing whether or not a data set follows a given distribution such as the normal or Weibull, and for visually estimating the location and scale parameters of the chosen distribution. The data… …56

**Probability current**— In quantum mechanics, the probability current (sometimes called probability flux) is a concept describing the flow of probability density. In particular, if one pictures the probability density as an inhomogeneous fluid, then the probability… …57

**Probability axioms**— In probability theory, the probability P of some event E , denoted P(E), is defined in such a way that P satisfies the Kolmogorov axioms, named after Andrey Kolmogorov.These assumptions can be summarised as: Let (Ω, F , P ) be a measure space… …59

**Probability mass function**— In probability theory, a probability mass function (abbreviated pmf) is a function that gives the probability that a discrete random variable is exactly equal to some value. A pmf differs from a probability density function (abbreviated pdf) in… …60
