The background into which he was born was dominated by the ‘larger than life’ figure of his grandfather Richard Lovell Edgeworth (–), whose life was documented in a two-volume memoir () by his oldest daughter, the famous novelist Maria Edgeworth (–).

There is a newly-emerging interest in probability theory as a basis for economic thought and this collection makes the writings of Edgeworth more accessible. Edgeworth's interests were changing anyway. From onwards, Edgeworth began making his monumental contributions to probability theory and statistics.

In his book Metretike, Edgeworth presented the application and interpretation of significance tests for the comparisions of means. In a series of papers, Edgeworth examined methods of estimating correlation coefficients.

Francis Ysidro Edgeworth (), scion of a leading Anglo-Irish family, was a classical scholar and mathematician who became the Drummond Professor of Political Economy at Oxford. He was the leading mathematical economist of his day and made major contributions to utilitarian ethics, probability theory, and statistics.

Contributions to economics In Mathematical Psychics (), his most famous and original book, he criticised Jevons's theory of barter exchange, showing that under a system of "recontracting" there will be, in fact, many. Edgeworth's work in statistics was no less important in at least four ways: (1) He was an astute and original philosopher of the application of probability and quantitative thinking in social science; (2) he had sufficient mathematical genius to situate Galton's concept of correlation in the framework of the multivariate normal distribution Cited by: F.

Edgeworth made major contributions in the early stages of the development of contract and game theory which have had a fundamental impact on economics.

This volume brings together a number of his writings on political economy edited by Peter Newman, the leading authority on Edgeworth's life and works. In addition to journal and dictionary articles and book reviews, the volume notably.
