Dr Dick's Home Page

Heres an assortment of things I'm interested in.

A Parade of Surfaces

My main mathematical interest is in the field of singularity theory (this is related to Catastrophy Theory which caused a bit of a stir in the seventies). A Parade of Surfaces, is an introduction to singularity theory which has lots of picture of some of the objects you frequently encounter in the theory. There are also some 3D webOOGL objects which you can examine with geomview.

The Liverpool Surface Modelling Package

A lot of my time has gone into developing a set of programs for visulising mathematical objects. This work has culminated in the Liverpool Surface Modelling Package an interactive set of modules for generating the various types of curves and surfaces which can occure in singularity theory, (and a lot of other branches of mathematics).


I've written a number of scientific papers which are in the process of being made avaliable on the web.


I use to work in the Mathwise courseware consortium. A large group of U.K. mathematicians who are developing hypertext learning material to cover A level and first year degree mathematics.

Maths Links

An asortment of links the other mathematical places.

Liverpool University Dept Mathematical Sciences My old departments home page.

The Geometry Center Welcome Page A cool site in the states, with lots of fun mathematical web pages.

The European Mathematical Society Lots of good links to most of europe's maths departments here.

Symbolic Sculptures Some nice 3D sculptures of mathematical objects.

The Pi Page All you ever wanted to about Pi. One of the few pages I've seen which actually has some content.


Professor Joseph Rotblat and the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs won the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize for nearly 50 years of commitment to peace and individual responsibility. You too can sign a pledge.

"I promise to work for a better world where science and technology are used in socially responsible ways. I will not use my education for any purpose intended to harm human beings or the environment. Throughout my career, I will consider the ethical implications of my work before I take action. While the demands placed upon me may be great, I sign this declaration because I recognize that individual responsibility is the first step on the path to peace."

See pugwash for more details. A good site of general discusions of Science and Ethics is Ethics in Science.

Plants For A Future

Plants For A Future is a group based in Cornwall who are researching into unsual plants which are either edible or are useful in some way or another.
