        Pierre Simon, marquis de Laplace l pl s French pj sim laplas 23 March 1749 5 March 1827 was a French mathematician and astronomer whose work was pivotal to the development of mathematical astronomy and statistics He summarized and extended the work of his predecessors in his five volume M canique C leste Celestial Mechanics 1799 1825 This work translated the geometric study of classical mechanics to one based on calculus, opening up a broader range of problems In statistics, the Bayesian interpretation of probability was developed mainly by Laplace.Laplace formulated Laplace s equation, and pioneered the Laplace transform which appears in many branches of mathematical physics, a field that he took a leading role in forming The Laplacian differential operator, widely used in mathematics, is also named after him He restated and developed the nebular hypothesis of the origin of the solar system and was one of the first scientists to postulate the existence of black holes and the notion of gravitational collapse.Laplace is remembered as one of the greatest scientists of all time Sometimes referred to as the French Newton or Newton of France, he possessed a phenomenal natural mathematical faculty superior to that of any of his contemporaries.Laplace became a count of the First French Empire in 1806 and was named a marquis in 1817, after the Bourbon Restoration.A frequently cited interaction between Laplace and Napoleon purportedly concerns the existence of God A typical version is provided by Rouse Ball Laplace went in state to Napoleon to present a copy of his work, and the following account of the interview is well authenticated, and so characteristic of all the parties concerned that I quote it in full Someone had told Napoleon that the book contained no mention of the name of God Napoleon, who was fond of putting embarrassing questions, received it with the remark, M Laplace, they tell me you have written this large book on the system of the universe, and have never even mentioned its Creator Laplace, who, though the most supple of politicians, was as stiff as a martyr on every point of his philosophy, drew himself up and answered bluntly, Je n avais pas besoin de cette hypoth se l I had no need of that hypothesis Laplace s early published work in 1771 started with differential equations and finite differences but he was already starting to think about the mathematical and philosophical concepts of probability and statistics However, before his election to the Acad mie in 1773, he had already drafted two papers that would establish his reputation The first, M moire sur la probabilit des causes par les v nements was ultimately published in 1774 while the second paper, published in 1776, further elaborated his statistical thinking and also began his systematic work on celestial mechanics and the stability of the solar system The two disciplines would always be interlinked in his mind Laplace took probability as an instrument for repairing defects in knowledge Laplace s work on probability and statistics is discussed below with his mature work on the analytic theory of probabilities.The asteroid 4628 Laplace is named for Laplace.His name is one of the 72 names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower.The tentative working name of the European Space Agency Europa Jupiter System Mission is the Laplace space probe.

    1. Your average author more or less bullshits, more or less all the time. (I am no exception, in case you wonder). It is thus interesting and remarkable to come across someone who actually knows what they're talking about. Laplace is one of these rare people, and his book kind of blew me away. Unfortunately, I'm reading it 180 years late; but what the hell, it's still amazing. The rest of this review is available elsewhere (the location cannot be given for policy reasons)


    2. Уверенности в устройстве Вселенной у человека может никогда и не появиться. Вращается ли мир вкруг Земли или Солнце вращается вкруг Земли, а прочие планеты вкруг Солнца? Казалось бы, доказано явное: Земля — это есть песчинка в космическом пространстве, вращающаяся вкруг с [...]
