Why should and how could the occurrence of an event At at a certain (period of) time / Bernoulli trial
t exclude the occurrence of another event Bt at the same (period of) time / Bernoulli trial t and vice
versa? Can this be described somehow mathematically?
Basic methods of classical logic, probability theory and statistics were used to analyse the interior logic of an exclusion relationship.
Mutually exclusive events are mathematized, the relationship to the relative risk and the odds’ ratio is worked out.
Mathematically, it is possible to recognize mutually exclusive events.
