This problem set includes a selection of probability problems. Probability theory started essentially as an empirical science and developed on the mathematical side later. Pascal and Fermat were among those who suggested
the basics of probability theory as we now know it. The problems featured in this issue demonstrate diversity of ideas and different concepts of probability, in particular, they refer to Laplace and Bernoulli models as well as to geometric probability.
