Bio/Research

Tom Archibald studies the history of mathematics from the seventeenth century to the mid-twentieth century. His main interests are: the history of the applications of analysis to the physical sciences; the history of differential equations, especially PDEs; the history of mathematics in France and Germany from roughly 1840 to 1940, with particular reference to interactions between the two communities; and the history of mathematics in Canada. He is currently working on a book discussing the reception of German mathematics in France between 1870 and 1920. He is also a member of an international research group on Mathematics and WWI.
