Excerpt from A History of the Mathematical Theory of Probability
The favourable reception which has been granted to (my History of the Calculus of Variations during the Nineteenth Century has encouraged me to undertake another work of the same kind. The subject to which I now invite attention has high claims to consideration on account of the subtle problems which it involves, the valuable contributions to analysis which it has produced, its important practical applications, and the eminence of those who have cultivated it.
