Alasdair Turner

“Dear All – I have just heard that Alasdair Turner passed away last night after a long struggle with stomach cancer. The end was peaceful in the company of his wife Ozlem. He leaves Ozlem and daughter Zara and our thoughts are with them both.”

“We all knew this was about to happen, but it is very much a shock to all of us, and it will take some time to recover. Alasdair was so central to the intellectual future of the space group, it’s hard to  see how he can be replaced. He was one of the few people in his generation who covered the whole field, from the philosophy through the maths to computation. In the last few years, I worked particularly closely – though informally – with him, and he was always my sounding board for new ideas. He really is a great intellectual as well as personal loss to us all.”
