By Anders Hald
This publication bargains an in depth historical past of parametric statistical inference. masking the interval among James Bernoulli and R.A. Fisher, it examines: binomial statistical inference; statistical inference via inverse chance; the principal restrict theorem and linear minimal variance estimation via Laplace and Gauss; errors idea, skew distributions, correlation, sampling distributions; and the Fisherian Revolution. vigorous biographical sketches of a few of the major characters are featured all through, together with Laplace, Gauss, Edgeworth, Fisher, and Karl Pearson. additionally tested are the jobs performed via DeMoivre, James Bernoulli, and Lagrange.
