Front Cover
Edward Elgar Pub., 1996 - Business & Economics - 1664 pages
A compilation of Edgeworth's published articles in probability theory and mathematical statistics, highlighting the evolution of the economist's theories beginning in 1925. Credited with being the nominal inventor of the Edgeworth Box diagram and the contract curve, this three volume set shows to an advantage his work in probability, the law of error, and the applications of probability and statistical theory to economics and the social sciences. The articles are presented as "photocopies" of the originals, including accompanying illustrations. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
