Professor John Denholm Lambert FRSE

Emeritus Professor of Numerical Analysis, University of Dundee.

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Jack Lambert, Emeritus Professor of Numerical Analysis at the University of Dundee. After three years in the Royal Naval Scientific Service, Jack became a PhD student of Ron Mitchell’s at the University of St Andrews, completing his degree while also employed as a Lecturer. He was one of the organisers of the numerical analysis conference at the University of St Andrews in 1965 which is regarded as the first of the biennial series of conferences which moved to Dundee in 1969, and continues now at the University of Strathclyde.
