Probability is the branch of mathematics concerning numerical descriptions of how likely an event is to occur, or how likely it is that a proposition is true. The probability of an event is a number between 0 and 1, where, roughly speaking, 0 indicates impossibility of the event and 1 indicates certainty.

A random number is a number generated by a process, whose outcome is unpredictable, and which cannot be subsequentially reliably reproduced. Random numbers are the basic building blocks for all simulation algorithms.
