L'Evolution du concept de probabilité mathématique de Pascal à Laplace. Article paru dans Technologia, 1985, 8, 3, pp.67-75


  • Ariane Szafarz


L'auteur décrit l'évolution du concept de probabilité mathématique de Pascal à Laplace, en insistant sur l'épisode crucial que fut le théorème de Bernoulli. Il apparaît que les théoriciens ont constamment monopolisé les considérations probabilistes. Ce qui s'explique vraisemblablement par l'ambiguïté sémantique du terme « probabilité » dans le langage courant.
