• RIP John Conway

    From Owen Rees@21:1/5 to All on Wed Apr 15 15:59:30 2020
    I have just seen the news that John Conway has died at the age of 82.

    I attended a talk he gave at Trinity College Cambridge in the 1970s. His enthusiasm for recreational mathematics was inspiring.

    Without him I would never have realised how much complexity can arise
    from such simple rules.
