The Birthday Honours 2013 have been announced, and an extensive list has been posted on Wikipedia. The big name is Andrew Dilnot, Chair of the UK Statistics Authority and inaugural presenter of More or Less, who is knighted “for services to Economics and Economic Policy”. Apart from this, the list on Wikipedia contains one other mention of maths or stats that I spotted, John C. Butcher, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit “for services to mathematics”. His website lists his research interests as “numerical methods for the solution of ordinary differential equations”.
That’s all that I can see, which doesn’t compare well with the nine particularly mathematical New Years Honours this year. Does anyone have any to add?
