The second part of this book deals with fundamental concepts of probability theory: random variables and conditional probabilities. Chapter 3 could be put under the leitmotif "Compression of information". Sometimes you don't want to know exactly: For example, it doesn't really matter which six lottery numbers were drawn on Saturday, it is more interesting how many correct ones I ticked. To make this more precise, random variables are introduced in Section 3.1. Each random variable gives rise to a new probability space, which describes the probabilities of the “compressed information”. That is the subject of Section 3.2.
