This volume features a chronological survey exploring Pascal's (1623-62) achievement as a mathematician, physicist and religious thinker, and a chapter on his life. His work on conic sections, the probability calculus, number theory, cycloid curves and hydrostatics is considered in detail. Analyses of the Provincial Letters and the Thoughts bring out the distinctive features, thematic and technical, of each text. Pascal's lesser known works and the Wager argument are also studied.
