Peter John Landin (1930 – 3rd June 2009[1]) was a British computer scientist. He was one of the first to realize that the lambda calculus could be used to model a programming language, an insight that is essential to development of both functional programming and denotational semantics. He was a colleague of Christopher Strachey and an academic at Queen Mary London.
