Gerolamo (or Girolamo, or Geronimo) Cardano (French: Jérôme Cardan; Latin: Hieronymus Cardanus) was an Italian Renaissance mathematician, physician, astrologer and gambler.[1] He wrote more than 200 works on medicine, mathematics, physics, philosophy, religion, and music.[2] His gambling led him to formulate elementary rules in probability, making him one of the founders of the field. His popular fame was based largely on books dealing with scientific and philosophical questions, especially De subtilitate rerum (¿The Subtlety of Things¿), a collection of physical experiments and inventions, interspersed with anecdotes.
