|Title||Turning Uncertainty into Certainty|
There is a popular belief that Probability Theory, also known as the science of uncertainty, can only lead to uncertain conclusions.
This talk will consider a number of situations where probability theory is able to extract certainty and to make definitive statements on random systems and structures. The exposition will be based on an informal introduction to measure theory, and supported by some live computer experiments.
