About the Author

Daniel G. Quillen proved Adam's conjecture in topological K-theory, and Serre's conjecture that all projective modules over a polynomial ring are free. He was awarded the Cole Prize in Algebra and the Fields Medal in 1978. He was Waynflete Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Oxford, where he lectured on K-theory and cyclic homology. Gordon Blower is Professor of Mathematical Analysis at Lancaster University, with interests in random matrices and applications of operator theory. He attended Quillen's lectures on cyclic theory when he was a junior researcher in Oxford.
