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

Let $X$ and $Y$ be random variables on $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.

Then $X$ and $Y$ are defined as **independent (of each other)** if and only if:

- $\map \Pr {X = x, Y = y} = \map \Pr {X = x} \map \Pr {Y = y}$

where $\map \Pr {X = x, Y = y}$ is the joint probability mass function of $X$ and $Y$.
