“But you have to remember P.J. Daniell of Sheffield”
P. J. Daniell is a mysterious figure who appears at several turns in the history of mathematics in the 20th century, in the fields of integration, stochastic processes, statistics, control engineering and even in the history of English mathematical education. The main focus of this paper is on Daniell’s work in relation to the development of probability in the twentieth century. But as it seems that no survey of his work and life has been attempted for 60 years I try to consider all his contributions and place them in an appropriate historical context.

Abstract

P. J. Daniell is a mysterious figure who appears at several turns in the history of mathematics in the 20th century, in the fields of integration, stochastic processes, statistics, control engineering and even in the history of English mathematical education. The main focus of this paper is on Daniell’s work in relation to the development of probability in the twentieth century. But as it seems that no survey of his work and life has been attempted for 60 years I try to consider all his contributions and place them in an appropriate historical context.
