Exposition of the Theory of Chances and Probabilities
by A. A. Cournot
Publisher: arXiv.org 2013
Number of pages: 216
I aim to make accessible the rules of the calculus of probability to those, unacquainted with the higher chapters of mathematics. The reading of my book will not require any other knowledge except elementary algebra, or even, strictly speaking, algebraic notation.

In this work we will look at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example where the mathematics involved is at the college level. The example is the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks.

This text covers material of a basic probability course, discrete stochastic processes including Martingale theory, continuous time stochastic processes like Brownian motion and stochastic differential equations, estimation theory, and more.

The book is addressed to readers familiar with applied mathematics at the advanced undergraduate level. The text is concerned with probability theory and all of its mathematics, but now viewed in a wider context than that of the standard textbooks.

The purpose of the text is to learn to think probabilistically. The book starts by giving a bird's-eye view of probability, it first examines a number of the great unsolved problems of probability theory to get a feeling for the field.
