A standard event E is any unambiguous proposition that can only assume the two values true or false. The lack of information on the actual value of E paves the way to the concept of probability. In many real situations it is not enough to direct our attention towards standard events, but we need to take into account also other events which add to our information. By means of the conditional probability of a given event the classical theory enables us to determine the probability of an event by first conditioning upon whether or not some second event has occurred. Namely there are many instances where it is difficult to compute the probability of an event directly, but it is straightfor
