Professor Robert “Bob” Leith Dewar FAA, 1944-2024

It is with deep regret that we pass on the news that Em/Prof. Robert (Bob) Leith Dewar, FAA, has passed away in Cambridge following a stroke. Bob was undertaking a six-month sabbatical from ANU at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, where he was an active participant in the programme on Anti-Diffusive Dynamics. He recently celebrated his 80th birthday.  Colleagues and staff in the INI community are deeply saddened by his sudden death. We send our condolences to Bob’s family and friends.

The Isaac Newton Institute

“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”

The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.

INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.

During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
