Alan McIntosh was a mathematician who specialised in analysis at the boundary of harmonic analysis and partial differential equations. With colleagues he was noted for solving the Calderon conjecture in the theory of singular integral operators, and the Kato square root problem. The techniques developed by McIntosh and his collaborators revolutionised he way fundamental operators in physics are analysed. From 1999 to 2014 McIntosh was Professor in the Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University.
