Chapter 10: Physics of `random experiments'

Miscellaneous commentary

  • The book by Eduardo M.R.A. Engel, A road to randomness in physical systems, Springer, Berlin, 1992, describes related work in probability and statistics. [Contributed by Nick Cox.]
  • p. 315, section 10.2: Neither Ellis nor Venn was the equal of Laplace mathematically, but both did very well in mathematics at Cambridge, an education which included much applied mathematics. Ellis was 1st Wrangler (top in mathematics) in 1840 and Venn was 6th Wrangler in 1857. [Contributed by Nick Cox.]
