Sir Michael Atiyah

Members of the Hamilton Mathematics Institute were delighted to hear that Sir Michael Atiyah (a member of the HMI Scientific Advisory Board) has been awarded the Abel prize in conjunction with Isadore Singer for "their discovery and proof of the index theorem, bringing together topology, geometry and analysis, and their outstanding role in building new bridges between mathematics and theoretical physics".
