London boroughs

The London boroughs are the 32 local authority districts that make up Greater London. The London boroughs were all created at the same time as Greater London on 1 April 1965 by the London Government Act 1963 and are a type of local government district. Twelve were designated as twenty as Outer London boroughs; the London boroughs have populations of around 150,000 to 300,000. Inner London boroughs tend to be smaller, in both population and area, more densely populated than Outer London boroughs; the London boroughs were created by combining groups of former local government units. A review undertaken between 1987 and 1992 led to a number of small alterations in borough boundaries. London borough councils provide the majority of local government services, in contrast to the strategic Greater London Authority, which has limited authority over all of Greater London; the councils were first elected in 1964 and acted as shadow authorities until 1 April 1965. Each borough is divided into electoral wards, subject to periodic review, for the purpose of electing councillors.

Council elections take place every four years, with the most recent elections in 2018 and the next elections due in 2022. The political make-up of London borough councils is dominated by the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties. Twenty-eight councils follow the leader and cabinet model of executive governance, with directly elected mayors in Hackney, Lewisham and Tower Hamlets; the City of London is instead governed by the City of London Corporation and the Inner and Middle Temples. From the mid-1930s, the Greater London area comprised four types of local government authorities. There were municipal boroughs, urban districts and metropolitan boroughs; the large county boroughs provided all local government services and held the powers invested in county councils. The municipal borough and urban district authorities had fewer powers; the situation was made more complex because county councils could delegate functions such as elementary education and library provision to the municipal borough and district councils, this was implemented piecemeal.

Reform of London local government sought to regularise this arrangement. The Royal Commission on Local Government in Greater London was established in 1957 and the report was published on 19 October 1960, it proposed 52 "Greater London Boroughs" with a population range of 100,000 to 250,000. This was made up of a mixture of whole existing units, mergers of two or three areas, two boroughs formed as the result of a split. In December 1961 the government proposed that there would be 34 boroughs rather than 52, detailed their boundaries; the proposed number was further reduced to 32 in 1962. On 1 April 1965, the 32 London boroughs and Greater London were created by the London Government Act 1963. Twelve boroughs in the former County of London area were designated Inner London boroughs and the twenty others were designated Outer London boroughs. Outer London borough councils were local education authorities, but Inner London borough councils were so designated to continue the existence of an Inner London Education Authority, praised by official Opposition and government who further noted that unusually the former County of London's many small local authorities had no history of providing education.

The City of London continued to be administered by the City of London Corporation, the Inner and Middle Temples continued to govern their own areas. Elections were held on 7 May 1964, with the new councils acting as shadow authorities before coming into their powers the following year; the boroughs were created. Some minor changes have been made to the boundaries of boroughs since 1965, two have changed their names. Between 1965 and 1986 the boroughs were part of a two-tier system of government and shared power with the Greater London Council; the split of powers and functions meant that the Greater London Council was responsible for "wide area" services such as fire, flood prevention, refuse disposal. Several London borough councils and the GLC were involved in the rate-capping rebellion of 1985. On 1 April 1986 the GLC was abolished and the borough councils gained responsibility for some services, provided by the Greater London Council, such as waste disposal; the Inner London Education Authority continued to exist as an ad hoc authority.

In 1990 it was abolished and the Inner London borough councils became local education authorities. The Local Government Act 1972 provided a mechanism for the name of a London borough and its council to be changed; this was used by the London Borough of Hammersmith on 1 April 1979 and the London Borough of Barking on 1 January 1980. Borough names formed by combining two locality names had been discouraged when the boroughs were created; the London boroughs were created by combining whole existing units of local government and it was realised that this might provide arbitrary boundaries in some places. The London Government Act 1963 provided a mechanism for communities on the edge of Greater London to petition for transfer from London boroughs to a neighbouring county district; this was used in 1969 in the transfers of Knockholt in Bromley to Kent, of Farleigh and Hooley in Croydon to Surrey. The Act provided for transfers between London boroughs and neighbouring counties where there was consensus for the change between all the relevant local authorities.

A Course of Modern Analysis

A Course of Modern Analysis: an introduction to the general theory of infinite processes and of analytic functions. The first edition was Whittaker's alone, but editions were co-authored with Watson, its first, second and the fourth, last edition were published in 1902, 1915, 1920, 1927, respectively. Since it has continuously been reprinted and still in print today; the book is notable for being the standard reference and textbook for a generation of Cambridge mathematicians including Littlewood and G. H. Hardy. Mary Cartwright studied it as preparation for her final honours on the advice of fellow student V. C. Morton Professor of Mathematics at Aberystwyth University, but its reach was much further than just the Cambridge school. Some idiosyncratic but interesting problems from an older era of the Cambridge Mathematical Tripos are in the exercises; the book was one of the earliest to use decimal numbering for its sections, an innovation the authors attribute to Giuseppe Peano. Below are the contents of the fourth edition: Part I.
