Peter L. Walker (b. 1942 in Dorchester, U.K.) was Professor of Mathematics at the American University of Sharjah, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, in 1997–2005. He began his academic career in 1964 at the University of Lancaster, U.K., where he was a founding member. Since 1984 he has also taught at other Persian Gulf universities, including Sultan Qaboos University, Oman.
Walker’s published work has been mainly in real and complex analysis, with excursions into analytic number theory and geometry, the latter in collaboration with Professor Mowaffaq Hajja of the University of Jordan.
Walker’s books are An Introduction to Complex Analysis, published by Hilger in 1974, The Theory of Fourier Series and Integrals, published by Wiley in 1986, Elliptic Functions. A Constructive Approach, published by Wiley in 1996, and Examples and Theorems in Analysis, published by Springer in 2004. He was also a contributor to the Wiley Handbook of Applicable Mathematics, published by Wiley in 1983.
Walker was elected a member of the London Mathematical Society (1970).
