Probability function/Lewis: we can imagine it as distributing probabilities over the worlds. - Each world has a probability P(W) and the probabilities of worlds add up to 1. - We get to the probability of sentences by adding up the probabilities of worlds where the sentence is true. - All probability is concentrated in the A-worlds.
