What is life if it is not imbued with chance?
We often meet our girlfriend or boyfriend or soulmate by chance. Chance events affect our health, our employment and the course of our lives. We usually do not know when (or how) we will die. The weather and other forces of nature (earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, drought, floods, bushfires, mudslides, avalanches, etc.) are also, to varying degrees, unpredictable. Your house may get burned, your car stolen, or you (or a friend) may be subject so some crime. On the positive side, you may win some lottery or event.
At the foundation of our universe, at its very structure, is probability. Sub-atomic ‘particles’ behave more like probability fields than what we would think of as solid matter or ‘energy.’ The more closely one looks at this world of the very, very small, the less certain one is of many things. The more we learn about one feature of a particle, the less we know of another. Heisenberg’s Uncertainly Theory underlies all of nuclear physics.
Some mathematicians choose to study our amazing world and the chance events of our lives. Their fascinating fields of study are called probability and statistics.

You, sir, are the best teacher I’ve ever known in my life. You made maths the most interesting subject for me. I really can’t express my gratitude in words for your amazing teaching!! I never knew integration could be so easy! You are the reason why I excel at all my tests.
Thank you very much for these videos sir …
