He received the Allendoerfer Prize, the Wisconsin MAA teaching award, and the MAA Haimo Award for Distinguished Mathematics Teaching, and was twice named Teacher of the Year at Beloit College. He is a co-author of three chapters in the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, of Special Functions (with Andrews and Askey, Cambridge, 2010), and the author of Sources in the Development of Mathematics (Cambridge, 2011).

Reviews

'Finally, it needs to be stressed that Roy does much more than present these mathematical works as museum pieces. He takes pains to tie them in to modern work when reasonable and appropriate, and that of course just adds to the quality of his work. I am very excited to have a copy of this wonderful book in my possession.' Michael Berg, MAA Reviews
'This book will be a valuable resource for understanding modular functions in their historical context, especially for readers not fluent in the languages of the original papers.' Paul M. Jenkins, Mathematical Reviews
