Hardy, Godfrey Harold

English mathematician. A number theorist, Hardy independently demonstrated in 1908 that Mendelian factors segregate under certain conditions according to outcomes predicted by the binomial theorem and its variants, an application later known as the (Castle-) Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium principle. Winner of the Royal Society’s Copley Medal (1947).
