The first Professor of Mathematics was Morris Pell, one of the University's three foundation professors. Pell gave the first lecture in mathematics on 13 October 1852, two days after the University's inauguration, to all 24 students at the time. At least two years of mathematics were still required of all the University's students at the time of Pell's retirement in 1877.〔 The School of Mathematics and Statistics was established on 1 January 1991 with the merging of the departments of Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics.〔 The School is located in the Carslaw Building, which was completed in the early 1960s, and is named after mathematician Horatio Carslaw (18701954), who was once Professor of Mathematics at the University.〔http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/About/Carslaw.html〕 抄文引用元・出典: フリー百科事典『 ウィキペディア（Wikipedia）』 ■ウィキペディアで「University of Sydney School of Mathematics and Statistics」の詳細全文を読む スポンサード リンク
