Memoir by Stuart Hastings
Obituary
Bryce McLeod, a Life in Mathematics In conversation with John Ball

 

"He solved problems with consummate skill across an extraordinary range of areas as diverse as fluid mechanics, general relativity, plasma physics, mathematical biology, superconductivity, Painlevé equations, coagulation processes, nonlinear diffusion and pantograph equations, among many others.
 
He had long-lasting and productive collaborations with very many distinguished mathematicians, both applied analysts like himself and modellers whose differential equation had caught his interest: he was always interested to look at new problems unearthed by colleagues working in a more applications-focused way.
 
His work was characterised by great lucidity of thought married to immense creativity and ingenuity of argument."
