What is the maximum probability value that a cumulative density function (cdf) can have?

what is the maximum probability any event can have?

i assume it's infinite?

Then you need to review exactly what a "probability" is!

an event which represented by a real number in the range from 0 to 1... however does it apply to all applications?

First of all that is not the definition of probability: probability is not an "event"- although I am sure the definition refers to events. I've never heard of a definition that did not "apply to all applications".

And, to satisfy my curiosity, what does this have to do with differential equations?

for your latter question... i mistakenly posted in the wrong forum... i am new and i don't know how to delete this post and repost it in the probalbility section.

as for my initial question, i am still unclear because of the many different definitions from people and websites. i just want to make sure.

Think about it this way: you can either be guaranteed that an event will take place or you can be less sure until you are guaranteed the event won't take place.

Quantify the above.
