Let $\EE$ be an experiment.

The sample space of $\EE$ is usually denoted $\Omega$ (Greek capital omega), and is defined as the set of all possible outcomes of $\EE$.

Discrete Sample Space

If $\Omega$ is a countable set, whether finite or infinite, then it is known as a discrete sample space.

Also denoted as

Some sources denote the sample space of $\EE$ as $S$.
