On leaving Cambridge Dr. Nuttall held academic positions in the US and Canada, where he published extensively in Theoretical, Mathematical and Computational Physics, as well as the mathematical discipline of Approximation Theory.

After retiring early from the the position of Professor of Physics at the University of Western Ontario, Dr. Nuttall has applied his expertise to a number of fields, in particular Financial Economics. Some of the results appear in the reports on this web site.
