Applied Probability in Great Britain

  title={Applied Probability in Great Britain},
  author={Peter Whittle},
  journal={Operations Research},
T subject of probability was, of course, motivated initially by its applications. However, there have been earnest attempts to convert it into a branch of pure mathematics, a development suggested by the axiomatic basis of the theory and reinforced by a preoccupation with possible measure-theoretic pathologies. Excesses in this direction led to a reaction, marked by the appearance of the journals Journal of Applied Probability (1963) and Advances in Applied Probability (1968) in Britain and… CONTINUE READING
