La matematica per le applicazioni economiche.Rome: Cremonese, 1961 Stock Code: 124001
In the original wrappersRare first edition of this manual on mathematics applied to economics by the influential Italian probabilist statistician and actuary Bruno de Finetti (1906-1985). De Finetti is chiefly noted for both his "operational subjective" conception of probability (developed in the 1920s independently of Frank P. Ramsey) and for his eponymous theorem on exchangeable sequences of random variables. He was an honorary fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, as well as a member of the International Statistical Institute and a fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. In 1974 he was elected a corresponding member, and then a full member, of the Accademia dei Lincei. The de Finetti Award, presented annually by the European Association for Decision Making, is named after him.
Tall octavo. Original printed wrappers lettered in red and black.
Numerous tables and diagrams in the text.
Unobtrusive blindstamp to the foot of the title, a few pencil calculations to margins. Wrappers rubbed and a little marked, spine chipped with minor loss to the foot and to the lower corner of the front wrapper, contents very lightly toned, otherwise a very good copy.
