What is O(A), in the same context? I've tried looking this up, but I can't find the definition/explanation of this notation anywhere.

For an example, see the definition of "Bayes' rule".

Regardless, the answer I was looking for is:

O(A) is the "Odds" of event A occurring (versus event A not occurring), whereas P(A) is the "Probability" of event A occurring. (i.e., the number of outcomes where A occurs over the total number of outcomes.)
