MacTutor Index

MacTutor is a free online resource containing biographies of more than 3000 mathematicians and over 2000 pages of essays and supporting materials.

MacTutor is constantly expanding and developing.

Recent changes to the archive (Up to JUNE 2023)

include 31 New Biographies including some Mexican mathematicians and some of the early female members of the AMS, as well as 31 New Entries in the Additional Material category. We have also added a new History Topic, one new Mathematical Society, two more Mathematical Honours and 11 large Mathematical posters.

MacTutor was created and is maintained by Edmund Robertson and John O'Connor of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews, and is hosted by the University.
Their contributions to the history of mathematics have been recognised by the Comenius medal of the Hungarian Comenius Society in 2012 and the Hirst Prize of the London Mathematical Society in 2015.
