  Lewis Carroll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His great-grandfather, also Charles Dodgson, had risen through the ranks of the church to become a bishop; his grandfather, another Charles, had been an army captain, killed in action in 1803 while his two sons were hardly more than babies.
Dodgson senior made some progress through the ranks of the church: he published some sermons, translated Tertullian, became an Archdeacon of Ripon Cathedral, and involved himself, sometimes influentially, in the intense religious disputes that were dividing the Anglican church.
Dodgson soon excelled at the art, and it became an expression of his very personal inner philosophy; a belief in the divinity of what he called beauty, by which he seemed to mean a state of moral or aesthetic or physical perfection.

Dodgson condensation begins with an n-by-n matrix and then successively computes k-by-k matrices with k going from n-1 down to 1.
A generalized Dodgson procedure might conceivably be competitive with standard determinant-evaluation algorithms when the entries are integers or symbolic quantities.
A side remark: Robbins and Rumsey, in their study of Dodgson condensation, (D.P. Robbins and H. Rumsey, Jr., Determinants and alternating sign matrices, Advances in Mathematics 62 (1986), 169--184) noticed that a modification of the algorithm gives rise to something they called the "lambda-determinant" of a matrix, where lambda is a free parameter.

In some respects, and those important ones, it comes nearer to Lear’s than to any other by the approximation to nursery rimes; he wrote pure nonsense sometimes; the use of jargon in proper, and, indeed, in common, names and so forth.
But, it is, in others, not far from Calverley’s—the two men, indeed, were born close together and must have been actual contemporaries at Oxford before Calverley migrated.
Dodgson’s academic vein, however, was mathematical not classical, and there is something of the manipulation of symbols in his systematical absurdity and the nonsensical preciseness of his humour.
