With the sample space now identified, formal probability theory requires that we identify the possible events . These are always subsets of the sample space, and must form a sigma-algebra. In an example such as this, where the sample space is finite because it has only 36 different outcomes, it is perhaps easiest to simply declare ALL subsets of the sample space to be possible events. That will be a sigma-algebra and avoids what might otherwise be an annoying technical difficulty. We make that declaration with this example of two dice.
