1 1-1 Basic Probability Schaum’s Outlines of Probability and Statistics Chapter 1 Presented by Carol Dahl Examples by Claudianus Adjai

2 1-2 Outline of Topics Powerful tools for analysis under uncertainty Topics Covered:  Set & Set Operations  Probabilities  Counting Rule  Conditional Probability  Probability of a Sample  Permutations & Combinations  Independent Events  Binomial  Bayes’ Theorem

3 1-3 Sample Sets Example: mining company in Chile owns 240 acres of land with copper (Cu) gold (Au) iron (Fe) minerals locations distributed as follows:

4 1-4 Sample Sets Cu Fe Au-1 Au-2 U

5 1-5 Set and Set Operations Universal set U = Total Acreage (rectangle) U  Au = Land contains Au (subset of U)  = An empty set Fe  Cu = Land contains iron or copper or both Fe  Cu = Land contains both iron and copper Complement of Cu (Cu’): U - Cu = Cu' = Land not contain copper

6 1-6 Probabilities Definition: likelihood that something happens P(U) = 1 0 < P(X) < 1 Total of X i mutually exclusive events for i = 1,2,3,…,n Drill for minerals randomly U = 240 acres Fe = 40 acres Cu = 60 acres Au-1 = 10 acres Au-2 = 10 acres Cu & Fe = 20 acres

7 1-7 Probabilities Cu (60 acres) Fe (40 acres) Au-1 (10 acres) Au-2 (10 acres) (200 acres) U 20 acres

8 1-8 Probabilities What is the probability of finding: Fe deposits? Cu deposits? Cu and Fe deposits? Au-1 deposits? Au-2 deposits?

9 1-9 Counting Rule If equally likely outcomes use counting rule: P(event) = # of items in event  # of total outcomes U = 200 acres => P(U) = (200)/200 = 1 Fe = 40 acres => P(Fe) = (40)/200 = 1/5 Cu = 60 acres => P(Cu) = (60)/200 = 3/10

10 1-10 Counting Rule Au-1 = 10 acres => P(Au-1) = (10)/200 = 1/20 Au-2 = 10 acres => P(Au-2) = (10)/200 = 1/20 (Au = = 20 acres => P(Au) = 20/200 = 1/10) P(Cu only) = (60-20)/200 = 2/10 = 1/5 P(Fe only) = (40-20)/200 = 1/10 Cu & Fe = 20 acres => P(Cu  Fe) = (20)/200 =1/10

11 1-11 Subtraction and Addition Rules Probability of finding nothing: = 1 – 1/10 – 2/10 –1/10 – 1/10 = 5/10 = 1/2 => 50% Probability find copper or iron (addition rule) P(Fe  Cu) = P(Fe) + P(Cu) - P(Fe  Cu) = 2/10 + 3/10 – 1/10 = 4/10 = 2/5

12 1-12 Conditional Probabilities Conditional Probability P(Cu | Fe) = P(Cu  Fe) / P(Fe) = (1/10 ) / (2/10) = 1/2 Probability of a sample Probability of a model given data

13 1-13 Permutations Example: You own three leases (A,B,C) drill two randomly without replacement how many ways can you choose 2 from 3 (A,B), (A,C), (B,C), (B,A), (, ), (, )

14 1-14 Permutations and Combinations If order matters choose r from n: Permutations = n!/(n-r)! = 3!/(3-2)! = 3 * 2 * 1/1 = 6 If order doesn't matters choose r from n: Combinations = n!/((n-r)!r!) = 3!/((3-2)!2!) = 3×2/2 = 3

15 1-15 Multiplication Rule and Independence Multiplication rule: P(S1 ∩ S2) = P(S1|S2) * P(S1) Independence: P(S1 ∩ S2) = P(S1) * P(S2) Example: Are discovering Fe and Cu independent? P(Fe ∩ Cu) = 1/10 P(Fe) *P(Cu) = (2/10)*(3/10) = 6/10

16 1-16 Implication of independence P(Cu|Fe) = P(Cu ∩ Fe) / P(Fe) = (P(Fe)P(Cu)) / P(Fe) = P(Cu) marginal probability = conditional

17 1-17 Independent Events Example: Russian gas company Gazprom exploring 4 gas fields one well per field similar geology – 1/3 chance of success probability you get a success on the first two wells success field independent of success in others P(S1 ∩ S2) = P(S1) *P(S1) = 1/3*1/3 = 1/9

18 1-18 Binomial Notation: Probability of success = p trial = n without replacement Formula: p(X = x) = n!/((n-x)!x!)(p) n (1-p) (n-x)

19 1-19 Binomial Probability 2 of 4 are successful (S,S,D,D) = 1/3*1/3*2/3*2/3 (S,D,S,D) = 1/3*2/3*2/3*1/3 (D,D,S,S) = 1/3*1/3*2/3*2/3 (S,D,D,S) = 1/3*2/3*2/3*1/3 (D,S,S,D) = 1/3*2/3*1/3*2/3 (D,S,D,S) = 1/3*2/3*1/3*2/3 P(X = 2) = [4!/((4-2)!2!)](1/3) 2 (2/3) (n-2) = 0.296

20 1-20 Bayes’ Theorem Bayes - Making decisions using new sample information. Example: Batteries hybrid renewable energy (wind, solar) Three of your plants build the battery E1E2 E3 Two battery types regular – r heavy duty – h

21 1-21 Bayes’ Theorem Cont. Example: Factory TypesBatteries r h E1200 r100 hTotal 300 E2 50 r150 h Total 200 E3 50 r 50 hTotal 100 h battery comes back on warrantee Probability battery from plant E2 = P(E2|h)?

22 1-22 Bayes’ Theorem From definition P(E2|h) = P(h∩E2) => P(h∩E2) = P(E2|h)P(h) P(h) but also P(h∩E2) = P(h|E2)P(E2) Replace in numerator P(E2|h) = P(h|E2 )P(E2 ) P(h)

23 1-23 Bayes’ Theorem What is P(h) = P(h∩E1) + P(h∩E2 ) + P(h∩E3 ) But P(h∩E1) = P(h|E1)P(E1) P(h∩E2) = P(h|E2)P(E2) P(h∩E3) = P(h|E3)P(E3)

24 1-24 Bayes’ Theorem Replace in denominator P(E2|h) = P(h|E2)P(E2) P(h|E1)P(E1)+P(h|E2)P(E2)+P(h|E3)P(E3) = (3/4)(1/3) (1/2)(1/3) + (1/3)(3/4) + (1/6)(1/2) = 1/2

25 1-25 Bayes’ Theorem General formula (h occurs) P(Ei|h) = P(h|Ei)P(Ei) P(h|E1)P(E1)+P(h|E2)P(E2)+P(h|E3)P(E3) P(Ei|h) = P(h|Ei)P(Ei)  i(P(h|Ei)P(Ei)

26 1-26 Bayesian Econometrics Econometrics = wedding model and data Ei = model, h = data P(model|data) = P(data|model )P(model) P(data) Example: y t =  + e i P(  |y) = P(y|  )P(  ) P(y)

27 1-27 Prior and Posterior Distributions P(  |y) = P(y|  )P(  ) P(y) P(y|  ) = how well data fits given the model likelihood function pick model to maximize P(  ) = prior beliefs P(y) no model parameters - treat as exogenous P(  |y) = posterior  likelihood*prior
