On his work, other than historical?[edit]

I'd be interested in knowing more about his mathematical research:

"As a distinguished mathematician, he has supervised a number of Ph.D and M.Phil theses and has been closely involved in a number of doctorals written at the Universities of Toronto, Harvard, Texas at Austin, and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel."

I'd also like to know more about this:

"He is proficient in a number of languages and is also actively involved in the field of Psychical Research."

I saw a message today from one of his co-authors indicating that the subject had died: [1]. I couldn't find any reliable sources for this yet, though, so I haven't added it to the article. —David Eppstein (talk) 05:51, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

[12/14/2014] "We are sorry to report that Ivor Grattan-Guinness has passed away. A memorial service is being planned for sometime in January." (Msrasnw (talk) 15:56, 16 December 2014 (UTC))


According to the math genealogy project he has several students. Should these be included in the infobox? Tkuvho (talk) 15:50, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

We usually only include the notable ones. (Also, BTW, we have a template {{mathgenealogy}} for linking to this site.) —David Eppstein (talk) 19:44, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
