Well, I thought I understood the difference between (weak) convergence in probability, and almost sure convergence.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My prof stated that when dealing with discrete probability spaces, both forms of convergence are the same.

That is, not only does A.S. convergence imply weak convergence, as it always does, but in the discrete case, weak convergence implies A.S. convergence.

I've been trying to wrap my head around why this is so, but can't seem to "see" it.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
