**The Mathematics of Sir Ronald Ross, MD**

Ronald Ross was a British MD who received the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1902 for his work on malaria. His discovery of the malarial parasite in the gastrointestinal tract of mosquitos led to the realisation that malaria was transmitted by mosquitoes, and laid the foundation for combating the disease. He developed the mathematical foundation for epidemiology, and used insights gained from his mathematical models to reduce the transmission of malaria. He was also an avid mathematician and published over a dozen papers in pure mathematics.
