Extractions: Donald Coxeter is always known as Donald which comes from his third name MacDonald. This needs a little explanation. He was first given the name MacDonald Scott Coxeter, but a godparent suggested that his father's name should be added, so Harold was added at the front. Another relative noted that H M S Coxeter made him sound like a ship. A permutation of the names resulted in Harold Scott MacDonald Coxeter. Donald was educated at the University of Cambridge, receiving his B.A. in 1929. He continued to study for a doctorate at Cambridge under H F Baker , and this was awarded in 1931. He then became a Fellow continuing his researches at Cambridge. During this period he spent two years as a research visitor at Princeton University working under Veblen . He was Rockefeller Fellow during 1932-33 and Procter Fellow during 1934-35. In 1936 Coxeter took up an appointment at the University of Toronto. He has remained on the faculty at Toronto ever since and recently a celebration was held in the department to celebrate his 60 years at the University of Toronto.

Extractions: It is with deep regret that I announce that Donald Coxeter passed away on the evening of March 31, 2003. Donald joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto in 1936 and he spent the next 67 years actively engaged at the University. He was the soul and spirit and the most active member of the geometry seminar. Donald had been described by many as the greatest living geometer. Undoubtedly the world's best known geometer, Professor Coxeter has made contributions of fundamental importance to the Theory of Polytopes, Non-Euclidean geometry, Discrete Groups, and Combinatorial Theory. He is best known for his introduction of what are now referred to as Coxeter groups. His name is attached to a number of mathematical concepts including the Coxeter diagram, Coxeter complex, Coxeter element, Coxeter graph, Coxeter number, and Coxeter system. Donald was a most prolific writer. He had over 200 publications including several books. His work was influential not only in geometry but also in many other branches of mathematics. Donald cherished the connection to music and arts. He was intimately involved in Escher's work. Donald was widely recognized and honoured. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (1947), Fellow of the Royal Society, London (1950), and Companion of the Order of Canada (1997). He holds a number of honorary degrees.

Extractions: :: have blog - will travel :: Main April 05, 2003 Donald Coxeter: 1907-2003 Companion of the Order of Canada and geometrist magician Harold Scott MacDonald Coxeter , known to us all as Donald, passed on last Monday . Dr. Coxeter had been a teacher and researcher at the University of Toronto since 1936, and he continued to be active in mathematics almost until the hour of his death. Modern science is often driven by fads and fashions, and mathematics is no exception. Coxeter's style, I would say, is singularly unfashionable. He is guided, I think, almost completely by a profound sense of what is beautiful. ( Robert Moody You may not know him, but your life was probably changed by some part of his work, and that's an amazing legacy for any mathematician, let alone a geometer. If you'd like a small taste of what you missed by skipping math class, check out this realvideo lecture on visualizing mathematics (slides are here "I am extremely fortunate for being paid for what I would have done anyway." I can't imagine the U of T without him. It would be like arriving at King's Circle and finding Hart House is missing.

Extractions: Coxeter influenced mathematicians, artists April 7, 2003 Professor Emeritus H.S.M. (Donald) Coxeter, who taught for 67 years in the Department of Mathematics and was often considered the greatest geometer of his generation, died March 31. "It is with deep regret that I pass on the sad news that one of our great professors emeriti, Donald Coxeter, passed away at age 96," President Robert Birgeneau told members of Governing Council April 3. "He was a math professor while I was a student here," Birgeneau said. "He was actually working on a paper for publication at age 96 it was just completed. It's truly astounding, almost eight decades of creative contributions to mathematics and geometry." Birgeneau added that Coxeter was "a great person, a great teacher and symbolic of everything I'd like to think we stand for here at the University of Toronto."
Extractions: MATHWORLD - IN PRINT Order book from Amazon April 2, 2003Noted geometer and author H. S. M. Coxeter passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto on March 31. He was 96. Known to friends and colleagues as "Donald," Harold Scott MacDonald Coxeter was originally to be named "MacDonald Scott" until a godparent suggested that his father's name "Harold" be added as his first name. At this point, another relative pointed out that "Harold MacDonald Scott" would give him the same initials as "Her Majesty's Ship" (as in, for example, Gilbert and Sullivan's well-known H. M. S. Pinafore ), and hence "Harold MacDonald Scott" became "Harold Scott MacDonald." Coxeter was born on February 9, 1907, in London. He was artistically gifted, especially in music, but decided to become a mathematician as a result of his love of the beauty of symmetry, an interest that was reflected in his work throughout his life. Coxeter received his B.A. in mathematics at Cambridge University in 1929, quickly followed by his Ph.D. in 1931. After briefly working as a fellow at Cambridge University and a visiting researcher at Princeton University, Coxeter accepted a position at the University of Toronto in 1936, where he taught and continued his research until his death this year.

The spectacular images - polyhedra radiating out in star shapes, and rotating rings of tetrahedra - to be found in his revised 11th edition of WW Rouse Ball's marvellous Mathematical Recreations And Essays (1939; 13th edition, 1987) pointed to a mind of outstanding imagination and analytical power. Donald Coxeter, as he was known, has died at the age of 96.

In 1926 he discovered a new regular polyhedron having six hexagonal faces at each vertex; in 1933 he enumerated the n-dimensional kaleidoscopes; and Coxeter polytopes, the fundamental domains of discrete reflection groups, are now called Coxeter groups.
