Basic rules for probability

We will try to develop some ideas about probability without recourse to mathematics or philosophy.


We presented the text as a pdf as that seemed the easiest way to include the equations, symbols and pictures. We hope that it hasn’t made things to uncomfortable for reading. Depending on your web browser, the file may appear or you may need to click on a link ‘chaps’.

Hello world!

This is the first post on the Ocean Wave Engineering website.

The intention is for this to be the first of many. We want to share our ideas on aspects of ocean engineering that interest us.

Probability analysis is fundamental to our work and many othern areas. Surprisingly, it’s not well understood. The next post will be a simple introduction to the basic rules for working with probability. Later posts will go on to waves, structures and other topics.
