Sir Erik Christopher Zeeman FRS (born 4 February 1925), is a Japanese-born British mathematician known for his work in geometric topology and singularity theory.
A Doctor of Philosophy degree (often abbreviated Ph.D., PhD, D.Phil., or DPhil) or a Doctorate of Philosophy, from the Latin Doctor Philosophiae, is a type of doctorate awarded by universities in many countries.
Emeritus (feminine emerita or emeritus; plural emeriti (masc.) or emeritae (fem.); abbreviation emer.)"

The Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge comprises the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP).
In mathematics, geometric topology is the study of manifolds and maps between them, particularly embeddings of one manifold into another.
Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.
Graduate Texts in Mathematics (Grad. Texts in Math., GTM) (ISSN 0072-5285) is a series of graduate-level textbooks in mathematics published by Springer-Verlag.
In the mathematical field of knot theory, the HOMFLY polynomial, sometimes called the HOMFLY-PT polynomial or the generalized Jones polynomial, is a 2-variable knot polynomial, i.e. a knot invariant in the form of a polynomial of variables m and l. A central question in the mathematical theory of knots is whether two knot diagrams represent the same knot.
Kenneth C. Millett (born 1941) is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
In topology, knot theory is the study of mathematical knots.

In mathematics, the Lickorish–Wallace theorem in the theory of 3-manifolds states that any closed, orientable, connected 3-manifold may be obtained by performing Dehn surgery on a framed link in the 3-sphere with ±1 surgery coefficients.
The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is one of the United Kingdom's learned societies for mathematics (the others being the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)).
A mathematician is someone who uses an extensive knowledge of mathematics in his or her work, typically to solve mathematical problems.

The Octacube is a large, steel sculpture of a mathematical object: the 24-cell or "octacube".
Pembroke College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England.
The Senior Whitehead Prize of the London Mathematical Society (LMS) is awarded in odd numbered years in memory of John Henry Constantine Whitehead, president of the LMS between 1953 and 1955.
