Dan Quillen (1940-2011)

Dan Quillen died on 30 April this year. He was the Waynflete Professor in Oxford from 1984 to 2006.

The Mathematical Institute is now collecting contributions. We would like to name a room in his honour in the new building, which is scheduled to be completed in 2013. It is planned that the room will also store the large collection of Dan Quillen's notes. In addition a list of donors will be kept in the room.

If you would like to contribute, please go to "Making a Gift" and noting "Quillen donation" on the donation form. Please consider claiming gift aid to increase the value of your donation by 25% or more.

Graeme Segal has written an obituary, a version of which was published in the Guardian.
The Memorial Meeting took place in Oxford on 19. November, 2011.

Here are some photos that Laura Schaposnik took at the meeting.
