Lunchtime Talk: George Green's Mathematical Influences

George Green was "an almost entirely self-taught mathematical genius" (NM Ferrers 1871) whose work was a major influence on the mathematical physics of the 19th and 20th centuries and shows no signs of stopping in the 21st. But from where or from whom did Green learn his mathematics? Peter Rowlett from Nottingham Trent University surveys Green's education in Nottingham and Cambridge and those who influenced him.
