**Edward Charles** "**Ted**" **Titchmarsh** (June 1, 1899 – January 18, 1963) was a leading British mathematician.^{[1]}^{[2]}^{[3]}

## Education

Titchmarsh was educated at King Edward VII School (Sheffield) and Balliol College, Oxford, where he began his studies in October 1917.

## Career

Titchmarsh was known for work in analytic number theory, Fourier analysis and other parts of mathematical analysis. He wrote several classic books in these areas; his book on the Riemann zeta-function was reissued in an edition edited by Roger Heath-Brown.

Titchmarsh was Savilian Professor of Geometry at the University of Oxford from 1932 to 1963. He was a Plenary Speaker at the ICM in 1954 in Amsterdam.

He was on the governing body of Abingdon School from 1935-1947.^{[4]}
