  • Description: The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Senegal is the little sister of AIMS South Africa-a similar institute founded in 2003 just outside Cape Town-and part of a story that has captivated mathematicians and triggered an outpouring of support in money, time, and brainpower. The institutes are the brainchild of Neil Turok, a South African-born mathematician who heads the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. At first the dream proved harder to realize than Turok hoped. But the past 2 years have brought a "transformation," Turok says.
