50th Anniversary lecturers

Professor Brian Davies has a post-retirement, part-time position at King's College, London. He was the President of the London Mathematical Society during one of its most fraught recent periods, from 2007 to 2009; honours include a Fellowship of the Royal Society since 1995. He is the author of more than 200 mathematical papers, mostly devoted to analysis, heat equations and non-self-adjoint spectral theory, and he has written 7 books, including Linear Operators and their Spectra; his interests encompass the philosophy of mathematics - as seen in Science in the Looking Glass and Why Beliefs Matter. He is also well known in the quantum physics community for work that he did in the 1970s on quantum measurement and open quantum systems.

Professor W. H. Woodin holds a joint position in the Departments of Mathematics and of Philosophy at Harvard University; he was previously Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1989 to 2014. In 1985 Professor Woodin was awarded the Presidential Young Investigator Award, and he received the Hausdorff Medal of the European Set Theory Society in 2013. He was a plenary lecturer at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2010, and a section lecturer in 1986 and 2002. He featured in the BBC Horizon programme To Infinity and Beyond in 2010. Professor Woodin is one of the leaders in our era in the quest to understand the fundamental nature of sets and the real numbers, taking forward the journey of Gödel and Tarski into the far reaches of higher cardinals.
