Excerpt: Sir Michael Francis Atiyah, OM, FRS, FRSE (born 22 April 1929) is a British mathematician working in geometry. Atiyah grew up in Sudan and Egypt but spent most of his academic life in the United Kingdom at Oxford and Cambridge, and in the United States at the Institute for Advanced Study. He has been president of the Royal Society (1990-1995), master of Trinity College, Cambridge (1990-1997), chancellor of the University of Leicester (1995-2005), and president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2005-2008).

His best kn...
