Countable Intersection of Events is Event

From ProofWiki

Let $\EE$ be an experiment with a probability space $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.

The event space $\Sigma$ of $\EE$ has the property that:

$\quad A_1, A_2, \ldots \in \Sigma \implies \ds \bigcap_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty A_i \in \Sigma$

That is, the countable intersection of events is also an event.


By definition, a probability space $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$ is a measure space.

So, again by definition, an event space $\Sigma$ is a $\sigma$-algebra on $\Omega$.

From Sigma-Algebra is Delta-Algebra:

$\ds A_1, A_2, \ldots \in \Sigma \implies \bigcap_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty A_i \in \Sigma$

by definition of $\delta$-algebra.
