# Probability & Statistics

The field of Probability and Statistics encompasses a broad array of topics in pure and applied mathematics, and has applications in almost every field of scientific research. The theoretical foundations of Probability Theory were developed in the early twentieth century by Kolmogorov and other workers, and this led to an explosion of applications in every scientific field. By its nature the field is driven by real-world applications, and this is reflected in the work of the members of the Probability and Statistics group, whose research ranges from applied Statistics to inter-disciplinary research to pure mathematics.
