DESCRIPTION:

The long-awaited second volume of Anders Hald's history of the development of mathematical statistics. Anders Hald's A History of Probability and Statistics and Their Applications before 1750 is already considered a classic by many mathematicians and historians. In particular, Hald analyzes the work and interactions of Laplace and Gauss and describes their contributions to modern theory. This new volume picks up where its predecessor left off, describing the contemporaneous development and interaction of four topics: direct probability theory and sampling distributions; inverse probability by Bayes and Laplace; the method of least squares and the central limit theorem; an

"This book is a great asset to all statisticiansan educational, insightful, and quite enjoyable book." (Chance, April-June 2002)

"authoritative and detailed account of the history of statistics" according to Michael R. Chernick. Hald is a well known Danish statistician who previously published a book titled "A History of Probability and Statistics and Their Application before 1750". This book is a sequel to that one. I have not read his earlier work but have read other fine historical accounts by Stigler, Porter and most recently "The Lady Tasting Tea" by Salsburg. This book is up to th
