Definition: A random experiment is any repeatable procedure that results in one out of a welldefined set of possible outcomes.

The set of possible outcomes is called sample space.

A set of zero or more outcomes is called a random event.

A function that maps from events to probabilities is called a probability function.
Together, sample space, event space and probability function characterize a random experiment.
