Cambridge is saddened by the passing of two remarkable mathematicians in recent weeks, Sir Michael Atiyah and Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer. To commemorate their work, we invite you to read our blog entry on the accomplishments of both men and to explore a selection of their papers. This collection will be free to read through 31st March 2019.
Atiyah specialised in geometry, and among his notable achievements was awarded the Fields Medal in 1966 for the Atiyah-Singer theorem.
Swinnerton-Dyer specialised in number theory, and is highly regarded for his postulation of one of the most outstanding conjectures of the 20th century: the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture.
