Abstract: Exchangeability is a fundamental concept in probability and statistics, and crops up in all sorts of different places. In this lecture, I will give an introduction to exchangeability, and prove a form of de Finetti’s theorem, which relates exchangeable sequences of random variables to i.i.d. sequences of random variables. I will finish with some ideas for where you can find out more if you need to.
