  • About this book

This is a collection of Harald Cramer's extensive work on number theory, probability, mathematical statistics and insurance mathematics. Many of these are not easily found in their original sources nowadays, for instance his pioneering work on risk theory published in the Skandia Insurance Company's jubilee volumes in 1930 and 1955. Despite their age, these eminent examples of Cramer's expository style remain highly readable. Cramer was one of the "fathers" of modern mathematical statistics. His famous book on the subject is still an important reference. His statistical papers included here were seminal to the subsequent development of the subject. The collection includes a complete bibliography of Cramer's work.
