The name Central Limit Theorem covers a wide variety of results involving the determination of necessary and sufficient conditions under which sums of independent random variables, suitably standardized, have cumulative distribution functions close to the Gaussian distribution. This closes the classical period of the life of the Central Limit Theorem, 1713-1901.

The Life and Times of the Central Limit Theorem chronicles the history of the Central Limit Theorem (CLT) from its earliest beginnings to its mature form. The book’s author, William J. Adams, tells the story from the work of Abraham de Moivre in 1733 to the work of Aleksandr Lyapunov around 1900. Adams includes two expository papers, one by William Feller and another by Lucien le Cam, to cover the development of the CLT to its final form around 1935.

These days the term central limit theorem is associated with a multitude of statements having to do with the convergence of probability distributions of func-tions of an increasing number of one- or multi-dimensional random variables2 or even more general random elements (with values in Banach spaces or more general spaces) to a normal distribution3 (or related distributions). in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences, DOI 1. 7 1, c Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.

The name Central Limit Theorem was coined in 1920 by George Pólya. In the world of precise mathematical statements, there is a large collection of theorems that are called Central Limit Theorems; they describe the conditions under which the conclusion discussed in the previous paragraph is valid. In this book, the author discusses the historical process from the first appearances of the Central Limit Theorem in its imprecise form to modern survey papers

How we measure 'reads'. What is the difference between struggling for achievements and competing for success? What is the effect of competitions on a scientic field? What are the specific implications on TOC? In this opinionated essay, I address these questions and related. Do you want to read the rest of this article? Request full-text.

About the First Edition: The study of any topic becomes more meaningful if one also studies the historical development that resulted in the final theorem. ... This is an excellent book on mathematics in the making. --Philip Peak, The Mathematics Teacher, May, 1975 I find the book very interesting. It contains valuable information and useful references. It can be recommended not only to historians of science and mathematics but also to students of probability and statistics. --Wei-Ching Chang, Historica Mathematica, August, 1976 In the months since I wrote ... I have read it from cover to cover at least once and perused it here and there a number of times. I still find it a very interesting and worthwhile contribution to the history of probability and statistics. --Churchill Eisenhart, past president of the American Statistical Association, in a letter to the author, February 3, 1975 The name Central Limit Theorem covers a wide variety of results involving the determination of necessary and sufficient conditions under which sums of independent random variables, suitably standardized, have cumulative distribution functions close to the Gaussian distribution. As the name Central Limit Theorem suggests, it is a centerpiece of probability theory which also carries over to statistics. Part One of The Life and Times of the Central Limit Theorem, Second Edition traces its fascinating history from seeds sown by Jacob Bernoulli to use of integrals of $exp (x^2)$ as an approximation tool, the development of the theory of errors of observation, problems in mathematical astronomy, the emergence of the hypothesis of elementary errors, the fundamental work of Laplace, and the emergence of an abstract Central Limit Theorem through the work of Chebyshev, Markov and Lyapunov. This closes the classical period of the life of the Central Limit Theorem, 1713-1901. The second part of the book includes papers by Feller and Le Cam, as well as comments by Doob, Trotter, and Pollard, describing the modern history of the Central Limit Theorem (1920-1937), in particular through contributions of Lindeberg, Cramer, Levy, and Feller. The Appendix to the book contains four fundamental papers by Lyapunov on the Central Limit Theorem, made available in English for the first time.
