New Fellows of the Royal Society

Congratulations to Nick Trefethen of the Computing Laboratory's Numerical Analysis Group on his election to a Fellowship of the Royal Society; also to Richard Ward of the University of Durham. Richard did his DPhil at the Institute under Roger Penrose, and was a JRF at Merton from 1977 to 1978.

It is very pleasing news that Raoul Bott has been elected a Foreign Member of the Royal Society. In the past, he was a frequent visitor to Michael Atiyah's group at the Institute.
