Mathematician awarded prestigious prize

A mathematician at Bristol University has been awarded one of the UK's most prestigious prizes in mathematics by the London Mathematical Society.

Jeremy Rickard, Professor of Pure Mathematics, has been awarded the Senior Berwick Prize in recognition of an outstanding piece of mathematical research published by the Society.

The prize, named after Professor W. E. H. Berwick, a former Vice-President of the Society, is awarded once every two years. It was first awarded in 1946.

Professor Rickard joined Bristol University in 1991. In 1995 he was awarded a Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society. In 1998 he was invited to speak at the four-yearly International Congress of Mathematicians - the most important of its kind in the world.
