Why do we do “Industrial Mathematics”?

Some Comments on Reasons once Given by Alan Tayler

Part of the Mathematics in Industry book series (MATHINDUSTRY, volume 1)


Of course it is a great honor to be invited to deliver an Alan Tayler memorial lecture, just now, 5 years after Alan passed away in an age, which is my own age today. This adds to the personal relation we had and encourages me to focus this lecture on his ideas about the basic issues of ECMI. I shall try to sketch his views in using some transparencies with his original handwriting and I will discuss these views. I am especially grateful to two women, who helped me most in preparing this lecture: June Tayler, Alan’s wife and Hilary Ockendon, his former student and his successor in ECMI.
