Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Frank Adams (November 5, 1930 - January 7, 1989) was a British mathematician, one of the founders of homotopy theory. He was born in Woolwich, a suburb in south-east London. He began research as a student of Abram Besicovitch, but soon switched to algebraic topology. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1956. His thesis, written under the direction of Shaun Wylie, was titled On spectral sequences and self-obstruction invariants. He held the Fielden Chair at the University of Manchester (1964-1970), and became Lowndean Professor of Astronomy and Geometry at the University of Cambridge (1970-1989). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1964.show more
