  • What is chance? Probability in mathematics, physics and everyday life
  • Lecture

In everyday life, we often speak of “chance” when there is no precise causal explanation of an event. In mathematics, however, exact terms have been developed, such as probability measures and random variables, in order to model the structure of random processes and to be able to describe their results quantitatively. But what do probability statements mean and how do they relate to the chain of causes of individual events?

Probabilities play an important role in classical (statistical) physics as well as in quantum physics, but they are interpreted differently.
