The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences is an international research institute for mathematics and theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge. It is named after one of the university's most illustrious figures, the mathematician and natural philosopher Sir Isaac Newton. Its building adjoins the Cambridge Centre for Mathematical Sciences. In 1993 the British mathematician Andrew Wiles announced at the Institute his proof of Fermat's last theorem. The institute was in 1999 awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize in recognition of "worldclass achievement in education." Its director as of May 2012 was Professor John Toland. ==History== It opened in 1992, with support from St John's College and Trinity College in particular.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=A Brief History of the Newton Institute )〕 St. John's provided land with a purposebuilt building and Trinity provided funds for running costs for a period of five years, and the London Mathematical Society also provided support.〔 After negotiations with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), then known as the Science and Engineering Research Council, the Institute was chosen from a number of proposals for a national mathematics institute to receive funding.〔 A number of private companies and bodies associated with the University of Cambridge also gave support.〔 The Institute is formally part of the University of Cambridge, from which it receives funding, but its largest source of funds is the EPSRC, from which it receives annually.〔 抄文引用元・出典: フリー百科事典『 ウィキペディア（Wikipedia）』 ■ウィキペディアで「Isaac Newton Institute」の詳細全文を読む スポンサード リンク
