Description:
In the year before his premature death in 1999, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course, Probability, at MIT for the last time. The late John N. Guidi (1954-2012) (audio) taped the lectures and took notes which he then wrote up in an almost verbatim manner conveying the substance and some of the atmosphere of the course.
