Professor John Coates (26th January 1945 to 9th May 2022)

We are sad to learn of the death of John Coates FRS, Sadleirian Professor 1986-2012. John was a distinguished number theorist and a dynamic Head of DPMMS 1991-97. He was instrumental in shaping the current Department and in the establishment of the Kuwait Professorship and the Kuwait Foundation Lectures.
