Cayley, Arthur



Mathematician, born in Richmond, SW Greater London, England, UK. He studied languages and mathematics at London and Cambridge, graduated with distinction, but on failing to find a position in mathematics, took up law and was called to the bar in 1849. In 1863 he became professor of pure mathematics at Cambridge. He originated the theory of invariants and covariants, and worked on the theories of matrices and analytical geometry, and on theoretical astronomy.
