Pascal Lecture 2010
Professor Nick Manton FRS (Cambridge)
The Pascal Fellow 2010, Nicholas Manton, is Professor of Mathematical Physics in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, and he is also a Fellow of St John's College at Cambridge. He introduced and helped develop the method of modelling topological soliton dynamics by geodesic motion on soliton moduli spaces. He also discovered the unstable sphaleron solution in the electroweak theory of elementary particles.
Professor Manton was awarded the London Mathematical Society Whitebread Prize in 1991, and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1996.
