The life and work of A. A. Markov. (English) Zbl 1049.01014
This is a careless essay on Markov’s life and on his work in probability theory. Repeating mistakes made by previous contributors, the authors believe that Tolstoy (who died in 1910) was excommunicated from the Russian Orthodox Church in 1912 (actually, in 1901) and they attribute to Markov rather than to Pushkin the verse (not limerick) “Count (not Duke!) Dundook”. They also state that Markov “implicitly accused” Chebyshev of plagiarism; actually, of failing to cite his predecessors. Some inaccuracies are also present and the references are given without page numbers which makes it difficult to check the provided formulations of Markov’s findings. Missing references include important papers by Markov jun. and Linnik et al. Describing Markov’s correspondence with Chuprov, the authors are unaware that in 1996, the reviewer published a book on Chuprov containing newly found letters betweed these scholars.
