He’s the first of the classic Clarke/Nash/Hicks/Haydock/Elliott line-up to leave us. Hicks & Elliott are still touring with the band.

Sir Michael Atiyah - he recently tried to prove the Riemann Hypothesis without success. I met him 15 years ago and he was an inspirational lecturer as well as a pioneering mathematician.

Didn’t Wiles prove Riemann?

I vaguely heard something about that, but if so it didn't work - the Riemann Hypothesis is still an unsolved problem http://www.claymath.org/millennium-problems/riemann-hypothesis

I can't find any information about work by Wiles but I did see that he proved Fermat's Last Theorem by proving a case of the Taniyama–Shimura Conjecture so I wonder if that was related vaguely...

Anyway, the $1 million is still out there!

Paweł Adamowicz, 53, the Mayor of Gdańsk (since 1998), assassinated. smiley - rose

I read about him on the Wiki list of notable deaths and followed the link. Such a tragedy, there aren't that many honest politicians and he seemed a nice chap, family man, no scandal, so well-liked in his community they kept voting him back in. Then a disgruntled person runs on stage at an event he was at, and stabs him in the heart "to protest his mistreatment by the previous government". So, nothing personal then. smiley - sadface
