Hey All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In my probability theory class we have just started learning about how a probability space is defined by a sample space (which contains all possible events), events and a measure.

We briefly went over the idea of the Power Set, which seems to be the set of all subsets in your sample space. My question is what is the difference between the Power Set and the Sample Space ? aren't they both just a collection of all possible outcomes ?

Thanks
