Analytical argumentations of probability and statistics.
Some fundamental concepts of probability and statistics are treated, with the aim to circumstantiate and to establish some procedures of numerical elaboration. For this purpose deductive argumentations are used, performed in terms of logic and mathematical analysis. A wide attention to the preliminary description of the logical and mathematical symbolic tools is dedicated. Are extensively shown fundamental properties and definitions, pertaining to the concepts of event and probability. Is reached the probability density of a random variable, by means of the analysis of properties characteristic of statistical sample and universe. Are presented important aspects of the probability density of a set and of a function of random variables. Essential properties are deduced, whom the probability density the expected value and the variance, of the random variables more used. The statistical test and the inherent hypotheses are treated, widely and in details, and lower bounds for the probability of these are reached. The conditions are shown in order to determine lower and upper bounds for the probability that an unknown quantity is found in one given zone of the real axis. Finally the analysis of variance and the regression analysis are treated, with many particulars and in the generally multidimensional aspect.
