Catherine Greenhill

Other stuff

  • I used to spend some of my spare time spent writing songs. (Or maybe I just have less spare time now than I did before?)
  • Alfred George Greenhill was an English mathematician, b. 1847, d. 1927. It is possible that Ramanujan learnt about elliptic functions from Greenhill's well regarded textbook on that topic. I'm not sure whether we share a common ancestor but it is entirely possible.
  • Catherine Sophie Greenhill is believed to have been the first person to be resuscitated using electric shock. She fell out of a window in London aged three on 16 July 1774 and was pronounced dead, then revived by a member of the Humane Society, using a portable electrostatic generator.
