**Exposition of the Theory of Chances and Probabilities**

by A. A. Cournot

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2013**Number of pages**: 216

**Description**:

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.

**Radically Elementary Probability Theory**

by

**Edward Nelson**-

**Princeton University Press**

In this book Nelson develops a new approach to probability theory that is just as powerful as but much simpler than conventional Kolmogorov-style probability theory used throughout mathematics for most of the 20th century.
