Probability measures are not real valued functions defined on a domain[edit]

because in general they are not functions.71.206.193.135 (talk) 21:17, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

For example, the Dirac delta mass measure is a probability measure, but it is not a function. 71.206.193.135 (talk) 21:20, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

The Dirac delta measure is indeed a function: it is a function from a sigma algebra to {0,1}. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.193.102.154 (talk) 00:30, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

In some cases that is true, although Carnap's book does say function, as does this one. So we can probably say an assignment of a probability, etc. History2007 (talk) 21:32, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Definition of probability missing[edit]

Hey, haven't you authors noticed that you haven't given any examples of actual probability measures?
