This magnificent book is the first comprehensive history of statistics from its beginnings around to its emergence as a distinct and mature discipline around Stephen M. Stigler shows how statistics arose from the interplay of mathematical concepts and the needs of several applied sciences including astronomy, geodesy, experimental. Despite Euler ’s and the Bernoullis ’ dominance of 18th Century mathematics, many of the other important mathematicians were from France. In the early part of the century, Abraham de Moivre is perhaps best known for de Moivre's formula, (cos x + i sin x) n = cos(nx) + i sin(nx), 5/5(30).

The Nineteenth Century K. V. H. Parshall and D. E. Rowe -- American mathematics comes of age, R. Cooke and V. F. Rickey -- W. E. Story of Hopkins and Clark. Perhaps the foremost mathematician of the 19th century was the German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, who made numerous contributions to fields such as algebra, analysis, differential geometry, matrix theory, number theory, and statistics. In the early 20th century, Kurt Gödel transformed mathematics by publishing his incompleteness.

Probability and statistics, the branches of mathematics concerned with the laws governing random events, including the collection, analysis, interpretation, and display of numerical ility has its origin in the study of gambling and insurance in the 17th century, and it is now an indispensable tool of both social and natural sciences.   New Edition - New in Paperback - This is the second revised edition of the first volume of the outstanding collection of historical studies of mathematics in the nineteenth century compiled in three volumes by A. N. Kolmogorov and A. P. : $
