Lucy Joan Slater

British mathematician (1922-2008)

Lucy Joan Slater (5 January 1922 – 6 June 2008) was a British mathematician who studied about mathematical functions. Many mathematical identities have been named after her[1][2]. For example, there is the Jackson-Slater identity[3] and the Rogers-Ramanujan-Slater identity[4][5][6][7]. She is also known for her books about mathematical functions[8][9] and Fortran[10][11][12].
