Research at St Andrews

The Copson and Curle lectures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We discuss two named lecture series given at the University of St Andrews over the last thirty years. They are the Curle Lectures named after Professor Newby Curle, formerly Gregory Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of St Andrews, and the Copson Lectures named after Professor Edward Copson, formerly Regius Professor of Mathematics at the University of St Andrews. We will discuss the range of topics of the lectures and give brief biographical information about the lecturers. We will also discuss the impact of these lecture series both on the student population and also on the wider public in St Andrews.
