Summary

Dr. Cardogan was Editor and Chief of the Caribbean Journal of Mathematical and Computing Sciences. Internationally, he was a highly regarded mathematics lecturer and researcher who gained respect for his contribution to one of the most perplexing problems within the discipline: the ?3x+1 problem' which has baffled academics around the world since 1937.

Biography

Professor Emeritus Charles Cadogan passed away on August 26, 2015 at age 79. An accomplished mathematician, Professor Emeritus Cadogan gave over 30 years of service to The UWI. After obtaining his PhD in mathematics at The University’s Mona campus, he joined the staff of the Cave Hill campus in 1970, becoming its first Professor of Mathematics. He served as Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology from 1987-1991, and was also University Dean for the three physical UWI campuses, for the last two of those years. He retired in 2001.
