Famous proofs - how they actually did the business

As part of a new section titled “Famous proofs - how they actually did the business” I have provided a detailed explanation of Laplace’s original proof of the Central Limit Theorem.  This will be followed later by a detailed commentary on Einstein’s original derivation of his special relativity theory.
