John Coleman Moore
John Coleman Moore (born May 27, 1923 in Staten Island , † January 1, 2016 ) was an American mathematician who studied topology .
Moore received his bachelor's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1948 and received his PhD from Brown University in 1952 under George W. Whitehead ( Some Applications of Homology Theory to Homotopy Problems ). He was a professor at Princeton University (from 1953 as a fine instructor and from 1955 as an assistant professor , later with a full professorship), where he retired in 1989. From 1989 he was Adjunct Professor at the University of Rochester .
He dealt with algebraic topology, in which Borel-Moore homology and Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequences are named after him. He also researched Hopf algebras ( Milnor-Moore's theorem ).
In 1970 he was invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Nice ( Differential homological algebra ) and in 1958 in Edinburgh ( Homology structure of group like spaces ). His PhD students include William Browder , Robin Hartshorne , Haynes Miller , Wu-Yi Hsiang , Michael Rosen , J. Peter May , Paul Frank Baum , Richard Swan , James D. Stasheff , Robert Thomason, and Joseph Neisendorfer . He was a fellow of the American Mathematical Society .
