My research has been on the physics of quarks: pp and pbarp total cross sections and elastic scattering
Until September 2004 I was Professor of Mathematical Physics in the University's Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and I chaired the School of the Physical Sciences.
|I took a large share of the responsibility for the design and construction of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, which won the award for the British Construction Industry's Major Project of the year, 2003.|
|I was largely responsible for setting up the Millennium Mathematics Project, which is intended to show children, their parents and their teachers that mathematics is interesting, important, and not too difficult.|
I set up a collaboration
which does research in
theory and technology. |
I played a leading role in the creation of the Cambridge eScience Centre, the National Institute for Environmental eScience, the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute, and the Newton Institute, and have chaired their management committees.
|For 22 years until February 2005 I was editor of Physics Letters B, which is probably Europe's leading high energy physics journal.|
Pomeron Physics and QCD Now in paperback!by Sandy Donnachie, Guenter Dosch, Peter Landshoff and Otto Nachtmann, was published by Cambridge University Press in November 2002.
This book describes the underlying ideas and modern developments of Regge theory.

With Allen Metherell and Gareth Rees, I am author ofpublished by Cambridge University Press in December 1997. Five chapters introduce fundamentals; the seven remaining chapters describe applications, including lasers, molecular binding, magnetic resonance imaging and junction transistors. Ideal either as a course text or a self-study text. The book includes nearly 100 exercises and hints to their solution.
|The Analytic S-Matrix, which was first published by Cambridge University Press in 1966, has recently been re-issued as a paperback.|
