The Peter Whittle Fund

Peter Whittle

The Peter Whittle Fund is established in the University of Cambridge through a generous donation from one of Peter's former students, together with matching corporate funding.

Its principal activity is to fund Mathematical Colloquia in honour of Peter Whittle, Emeritus Churchill Professor of Mathematics for Operational Research in the Statistical Laboratory
