This ebook bargains a close historical past of parametric statistical inference. overlaying the interval among James Bernoulli and R.A. Fisher, it examines: binomial statistical inference; statistical inference through inverse likelihood; the significant restrict theorem and linear minimal variance estimation through Laplace and Gauss; mistakes thought, 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 by way of DeMoivre, James Bernoulli, and Lagrange.
