To construct an injection f: E -> F, one must first select f(l) in F. There are n possibilities. Now, once f( 1) is chosen, there are only n - 1 possible choices for f(2) sinee f(2) must differ from f(I), etc. , in F - U(I), ... ,f(p - In. In summary, we have n(n - 1) ... (n - p + 1) possibilities for f. D Permutations. A special case of interest occurs when n = p. In this case, from Eq. (36), we see that A~ = n!. Now, if card E = card F, an injection of E into F is necessarily a bijection. Recalling that by definition a permutation of E is a bijection of E into itself, we see by specializing to the case E == F, that the number of permutations of a set with n elements is (37) Counting Subsets of a Given Size.

Basic Concepts and Elementary Models It is "known from experience" that Zn(w) tends to t as n goes to 00. 001111111111. that is to say w = t, and of other w's of a pathological kind for which Zn(w) does not tend to t as n -+ 00. The claim of Probabilists is that such w's are indeed pathological in the sense that 1 P({wilimZn(w) = t}) = I I· (46) This is the famous strong law of large numbers for heads and tails. It is a physical law in some sense, but here, in the mathematical setting of Probability Theory, it becomes a theorem, and it was proved by Borel in 1909.
