CfP History of Mathematical Analysis, 14 May

 CfP deadline 30 March

Birkbeck College and the British Society for the History of Mathematics invite paper proposals for their meeting on the history of mathematical analysis. Topics may range from the "prehistory" of analysis, through analysis in non-Western mathematics, to the 20th century. Already confirmed speakers and titles are:


Jeremy Gray, "Differential Equations – the real (and complex) reasons for Analysis"

Niccolò Guicciardini, "The birth and reception of the Newtonian and the Leibnizian calculi"

Brigitte Stenhouse, "Mary Somerville’s abandoned manuscripts and the promotion of analytical mathematics in 1830s Britain"

Kenneth Falconer, “Fractal Geometry through the 20th Century”


Proposals should be for presentations of 20 mins + 5 mins for questions. Brief abstracts (c.100 words) and very short biographical details, should be sent to the organiser, Sarah Hart by 30 March


The event will be held at Birkbeck College, University of London, on 14 May.
