Theodore William Chaundy, 1889-1966, was an English mathematician who introduced the Burchnall-Chaundy theory. He attended Oxford High School for Boys and read mathematics at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1910 he was appointed Lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church; from 1912-1947 he served as an Official Student and Tutor in Mathematics. He was University Lecturer in Mathematics, 1927-1947, and University Reader in Mathematics, 1947-1956.
His publications include The Differential Calculus (1935), The Printing of Mathematics (1954), and Elementary Differential Equations (1969).
The collection consists almost entirely of lectures on mathematics delivered in the University of Oxford. Some have annotations and revisions, perhaps with a view to publication.
The papers, which cover the years 1910 - 1951, were received from Mrs. Chaundy.
Entry to read in the Library is permitted only on presentation of a valid reader's card (for admissions procedures see http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/services/admissions/).
