Om forfatteren

C. R. Leedham-Green is an Emeritus Professor of Pure Mathematics at Queen Mary, University of London. He is an algebraist, working mainly in group theory, and most of his publications concern p-groups, pro-p-groups, and computation in matrix groups defined over finite fields. He is a joint author, together with Susan McKay, of The Structure of Groups of Prime Power Order (2002).
