Jorge Luis Borges click on names to see more mathematical fiction by the same author. In what is clearly a metaphor for the apparent randomness of life and the theological implications that follow , the great Argentinian writer Borges crafts a tale about the all important lottery in a mythical land of Babylon. There is not much mathematics in this short story, but perhaps just enough to justify its inclusion in this database.

The narrator notes that it is surprising that no general theory of gaming had existed for a long time, but that after numerous debates "of a legal and mathematical nature", such a theory had begun to form. This is not so much a reference to Game Theory , a branch of mathematics that would have been in its infancy when this was written, as it is a hint that the theory of probability itself was developed surprisingly late in this history of mathematics considering it fundamental importance in our understanding of the world.

He goes on to explain that this theory resulted in the creation of a more complicated lottery based not only one one drawing or selection , but in fact on infinitely many drawings. More information about this work can be found at legacyofthestoryteller.
