Abstract

Frank Matthews Leslie was born on 8 March 1935 in Dundee, Scotland. Following his graduation, Frank left for the University of Manchester, to begin postgraduate study in continuum mechanics. After his period in Manchester, Frank was lucky enough to obtain a fellowship to spend a year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). On his return to the UK, Frank was appointed by AlbertGreen to the staff of the Mathematics Department at thenewly created University of Newcastle. In October 1968 they moved to Glasgow, and Frank began work in the Department of Mathematics at Strathclyde University. He was to spend the rest of his life there.
