Creating Modern Probability: Its Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy in Historical Perspective

Cambridge University Press, 28 de gen. 1994 - 323 pàgines
This is the only book to chart the history and development of modern probability theory. It shows how in the first thirty years of this century probability theory became a mathematical science. The author also traces the development of probabilistic concepts and theories in statistical and quantum physics. There are chapters dealing with chance phenomena, and current major mathematical theories, together with their foundational and philosophical problems. Among the theorists whose work is treated at some length are Kolmogorov, von Mises and de Finetti.
