A miller's son, George Green (17931841) received little formal schooling yet managed to acquire significant knowledge of modern mathematics, especially French work. In 1828 he published his Essay on the Application of Mathematical Analysis to the Theories of Electricity and Magnetism, the work for which he is now celebrated. Admitted to Cambridge in 1833 as a mature student, Green went on to become a fellow of Gonville and Caius College. His early death, however, cut short a promising career as a mathematical physicist. While English contemporaries saw what he might have achieved, they did not understand what he had actually achieved. Only when William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin) rediscovered Green's first publication and shared it with the French mathematical elite was his greatness truly appreciated. Edited by the Cambridge mathematician Norman Macleod Ferrers (18291903) and published in 1871, this collection comprises Green's influential essay and nine further papers

D. M Cannell(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematicians and lay people alike will enjoy this fascinating book that details the life of George Green, a pioneer in the application of mathematics to physical problems. Green was a mathematical physicist who spent most of the first 40 years of his life working not as a physicist but as a miller in his father's grain mill. Green received only four terms of formal schooling, and at the age of nine he had surpassed his teachers. Green studied mathematics in his spare time and in 1828 published his most famous work, An Essay on the Application of Mathematical Analysis to the Theories of Electricity and Magnetism. It was in this essay that the famous Green's Theorem and Green's functions first appeared. Although this work was largely ignored during his lifetime, it is now considered of major importance in modern physics
