Definition: Random Experiments and Random Events

A random experiment is an experiment with the following properties:

The set of all outcomes is called probability space and denoted by \(\Omega\).

Any subset \(F\subseteq \Omega\) of outcomes is called a random event or just event. We denote events, using Latin capital letters \(A,B,C,\ldots\).
