The London Mathematical Society (LMS) would like to extend its congratulations to Professor Timothy Gowers FRS (University of Cambridge) on receiving a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. The honour is richly deserved for Professor Gowers' outstanding contribution to mathematics. Having received both his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Cambridge, Professor Gowers continues to work at the university making substantial contributions in combinatorics. He received the prestigious Fields Medal in 1998 for his research 'connecting the fields of functional analysis and combinatorics', and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999.
Professor Gowers, along with Sir Roger Penrose, will present this year's first LMS Popular Lecture on 26 June in London and the second lecture on 26 September in Birmingham. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Popular Lectures.
