Describes some parts of Wiener’s significant contribution to mathematics in as simple and non‐technical a language as possible. Looks at Wiener’s early research and how he applied integration theory to potential theory, but not without first explaining the background to integration theory. Then describes one of Wiener’s most important works – that on Brownian motion, and how other theories such as harmonic analysis flowed from his study of Brownian motion. Concludes with a brief chronology of Wiener’s life.
