Ars Conjectandi Latin for "The Art of Conjecturing" is a book on combinatorics and mathematical probability written by Jacob Bernoulli and published in , eight years after his death, by his nephew, Niklaus Bernoulli. The seminal work consolidated, apart from many combinatorial topics, many central ideas in probability theory , such as the very first version of the law of large numbers : indeed, it is widely regarded as the founding work of that subject. It also addressed problems that today are classified in the twelvefold way and added to the subjects; consequently, it has been dubbed an important historical landmark in not only probability but all combinatorics by a plethora of mathematical historians. The importance of this early work had a large impact on both contemporary and later mathematicians; for example, Abraham de Moivre. Bernoulli wrote the text between and , including the work of mathematicians such as Christiaan Huygens , Gerolamo Cardano , Pierre de Fermat , and Blaise Pascal. He incorporated fundamental combinatorial topics such as his theory of permutations and combinations the aforementioned problems from the twelvefold way as well as those more distantly connected to the burgeoning subject: the derivation and properties of the eponymous Bernoulli numbers , for instance.

Jakob Bernoulli was the first in a famous family of Swiss mathematicians. This book, published posthumously, was his greatest work in which he demonstrated the calculus of probability, the theory of combinations and permutations, the thoery of Bernoulli numbers, Bernoulli's law of large numbers, and a discussion of mathematical and moral predictability.
