Burnside, William


Mathematician, born in London, England, UK. He entered St John's College, Cambridge, in 1871, became a fellow of Pembroke until 1886, and was professor of mathematics at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich (1885--1919). He worked in mathematical physics, complex function theory, differential geometry, and probability theory, but his lasting work was in group theory. His Theory of Groups (1897) was the first English textbook on the subject.
