John Horton Conway
,
a British mathematician and Professor Emeritus at
Princeton University
^{[1]}
. His research interests include the theory of
finite groups
,
knot theory
,
number theory

coding theory
^{[2]}
and
quantum physics
. He is best known for the invention of the
Game of Life
^{[3]}
, and for the codevelopment of
combinatorial game theory
^{[4]}
along with a remarkable new way to construct numbers as introduced in his 1976 book
On Numbers and Games
