**Thomas William Edmondson**, Ph. D., (1869– 5 November 1938) was an Anglo-American mathematician, born at Skipton-in-Craven, Yorkshire, England. He graduated from the University of London, studied at Cambridge, and also at Clark University, Worcester, Mass. He was an associate professor at NYU from 1896 to 1905, and a professor of mathematics afterwards. He wrote mathematical textbooks; his publications include:

*Worked Examples in Coördinate Geometry*(1891)*Mensuration and Spherical Geometry*(1893), with W. Briggs*Deductions in Euclid*(1901)

He married the former Minnie Ramsden in 1897 in Perth, Ontario.

**William Paul Thurston** was an American mathematician. He was a pioneer in the field of low-dimensional topology and was awarded the Fields Medal in 1982 for his contributions to the study of 3-manifolds.

**Sir William Vallance Douglas Hodge** was a British mathematician, specifically a geometer.

**Sergei Petrovich Novikov** is a Soviet and Russian mathematician, noted for work in both algebraic topology and soliton theory. In 1970, he won the Fields Medal.

**Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky** was a Russian mathematician and geometer, known primarily for his work on hyperbolic geometry, otherwise known as Lobachevskian geometry, and also for his fundamental study on Dirichlet integrals, known as the Lobachevsky integral formula.

**Albert William Tucker** was a Canadian mathematician who made important contributions in topology, game theory, and non-linear programming.

**Dominic David Joyce** FRS is a British mathematician, currently a professor at the University of Oxford and a fellow of Lincoln College since 1995. His undergraduate and doctoral studies were at Merton College, Oxford. He undertook a DPhil in geometry under the supervision of Simon Donaldson, completed in 1992. After this he held short-term research posts at Christ Church, Oxford, as well as Princeton University and the University of California, Berkeley in the United States.

**Leonard Mascot Blumenthal** was a Jewish American mathematician.

**Corrado Segre** was an Italian mathematician who is remembered today as a major contributor to the early development of algebraic geometry.

**Mathai Varghese** is a mathematician at the University of Adelaide. His first most influential contribution is the Mathai–Quillen formalism, which he formulated together with Daniel Quillen, and which has since found applications in index theory and topological quantum field theory. He was appointed a full professor in 2006. He was appointed Director of the Institute for Geometry and its Applications in 2009. In 2011, he was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. In 2013, he was appointed the Elder Professor of Mathematics at the University of Adelaide, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of South Australia. In 2017, he was awarded an ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship. In 2021, he was awarded the prestigious Hannan Medal and Lecture from the Australian Academy of Science, recognizing an outstanding career in Mathematics. In 2021, he was also awarded the prestigious George Szekeres Medal which is the Australian Mathematical Society’s most prestigious medal, recognising research achievement and an outstanding record of promoting and supporting the discipline.

**Ehud Hrushovski** is a mathematical logician. He is a Merton Professor of Mathematical Logic at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford. He was also Professor of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

**William Leonard Edge** FRSE was a British mathematician most known for his work in finite geometry. Students knew him as **WLE**.

**Thomas Francis Banchoff** is an American mathematician specializing in geometry. He is a professor at Brown University, where he has taught since 1967. He is known for his research in differential geometry in three and four dimensions, for his efforts to develop methods of computer graphics in the early 1990s, and most recently for his pioneering work in methods of undergraduate education utilizing online resources.

**Danny Matthew Cornelius Calegari** is a mathematician who is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago. His research interests include geometry, dynamical systems, low-dimensional topology, and geometric group theory.

The position of **Savilian Professor of Geometry ** was established at the University of Oxford in 1619. It was founded by Sir Henry Savile, a mathematician and classical scholar who was Warden of Merton College, Oxford, and Provost of Eton College, reacting to what has been described by one 20th-century mathematician as "the wretched state of mathematical studies in England" at that time. He appointed Henry Briggs as the first professor. Edward Titchmarsh said when applying that he was not prepared to lecture on geometry, and the requirement was removed from the duties of the post to enable his appointment, although the title of the chair was not changed. The two Savilian chairs have been linked with professorial fellowships at New College, Oxford, since the late 19th century. Before then, for over 175 years until the middle of the 19th century, the geometry professors had an official residence adjoining the college in New College Lane.

**Robert Kendall Lazarsfeld** is an American mathematician, currently a professor at Stony Brook University. He was previously the Raymond L. Wilder Collegiate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. He is the son of two sociologists, Paul Lazarsfeld and Patricia Kendall. His research focuses on algebraic geometry.

**George Johnston Allman** was an Irish professor, mathematician, classical scholar, and historian of ancient Greek mathematics. His fame rests mainly upon his authorship of *Greek Geometry from Thales to Euclid*, first published in Dublin in 1889, and republished several times subsequently.

**Richard Paul Winsley Thomas** is a British mathematician working in several areas of geometry. He is a professor at Imperial College London. He studies moduli problems in algebraic geometry, and ‘mirror symmetry’—a phenomenon in pure mathematics predicted by string theory in theoretical physics.

**Sheldon H. Katz** is an American mathematician, specializing in algebraic geometry and its applications to string theory.

**Mark William Gross** is an American mathematician, specializing in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and mirror symmetry.

**James William Peter Hirschfeld** is an Australian mathematician, resident in the United Kingdom, specializing in combinatorial geometry and the geometry of finite fields. He is an emeritus professor and Tutorial Fellow at the University of Sussex.
