14072 Volterra           Discovered 1996 May 21 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Vito Volterra (1860-1940), professor successively at Pisa, Turin and Rome, developed a general theory of functionals that yielded solutions to integral and integro-differential equations. He also studied mathematico-biological models of prey-predator systems, in terms of a pair of first-order differential equations.
