Description

The Arithmetical Triangle, one of the most important number patterns in the history of mathematics, has greatly influenced the development of probability theory and the history of analysis. This book is the first to explore its roots in Pythagorean arithmetic, Hindu combinatorics, and Arabic algebra, also describing the progressive solution of combinatorial problems from the earliest recorded examples to the Renaissance and later. Meticulously researched, the work provides a complete account of Pascal's fundamental work on probability and makes a distinctive contribution to the history of mathematics.show more
