Dedicated Papers - J Bryce McLeod FRS FRSE (1929 - 2014)


This page is designed to allow Bryce's peers, collaborators, students and whose who admire his work to dedicate a paper to him.


"Bryce considered himself a problem-solving mathematician rather than a builder of general theories. He liked to focus on a specific hard problem and to find something new to say about it that was at the same time rigorous, interesting and useful....

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."

Sam Howison August 2014.
