Description:

They consist almost entirely of lectures on mathematics delivered in the University of Oxford. Some have annotations and revisions, perhaps with a view to publication

 

Unless otherwise stated, all items are manuscript. Titles in inverted commas are those on the manuscripts.

Listed by Jeannine Alton and Harriot Weiskittel

"
Date: 1910-1951
Arrangement:

Chaundy kept the lectures in files with his name and address and usually a date; he classified them by a letter and subscript numeral. The alphabetical sequence has been retained, although it does not correspond with chronological order; work classified under one letter group may span several years, while incomplete sequences (e.g. 'B' or 'N') appear to indicate that some lectures are missing. Some files contained loose notes, calculations or correspondence; these have been extracted and appear as separate items immediately following the relevant file.

(See items 25-32).

 

A photocopy of an obituary of Chaundy which appeared in a Christ Church Report 1971 has been included with the collection. An obituary notice appeared in the Times on 16 April 1966.
