# Probability theorems

There are four important probability theorems for risk analysis. Their meaning and use are discussed in this section:

Strong law of Large Numbers (also called Tchebysheffs inequality 1)

Central Limit Theorem (CLT)

We also offer a number of mathematical techniques useful in risk analysis and referenced elsewhere:

Tchebysheffs Rule (Theorem)

Least Squares Linear Regression

Rank Order Correlation Coefficient

^{1} After the Russian mathematician Pafnuti Tchebysheff (1821-1894). Other transliterations of his name are Tchebycheff, Chebyshev and Tchebichef.
