Professor Jeffrey Rosenthal discusses ideas from his recent book, "Struck by Lightning: The Curious World of Probabilities".

Probabilities and randomness arise whenever we're not sure what will happen next. They apply to everything from lottery jackpots to airplane crashes, casino gambling, homicide rates, medical studies, election polls, coincidences, spread of disease, and games of poker. They are also essential for statistical inference and for Monte Carlo computer algorithms. This talk explores uncertainty's ubiquity, and discuss how a Probability Perspective can shed new light on familiar situations.
