Progress in pure mathematics has its own tempo. Major questions may remain open for decades, even centuries, and once an answer has been found, it can take a collaborative effort of many mathematicians in the field to check
that it is correct. The <em>New Contexts for Stable Homotopy Theory</em> programme, held at the Institute in 2002, is a prime example of how its research programmes can benefit researchers and its lead to landmark results. </div>

<p><em>This article is part of a <a href="http://plus.maths.org/content/isaac-newton-institute">series</a> celebrating the 20th birthday of the <a href="http://www.newton.ac.uk/">Isaac Newton Institute</a> in Cambridge. The Institute is a place where leading mathematicians from around the world can come together for weeks or months at a time to indulge in what they like doing best: thinking about maths and exchanging ideas without the distractions and duties that come with their normal working lives.<p><a href="http://plus.maths.org/content/shape-things-come" target="_blank">read more</a></p>http://plus.maths.org/content/shape-things-come#commentshomotopyNewton InstitutetopologyThu, 19 Jul 2012 08:20:32 +0000mf3445439 at http://plus.maths.org/content
