From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Simon Phillips Norton (born 1952) is a mathematician in Cambridge, England, who works on finite simple groups. He constructed the Harada-Norton group, and in 1979 together with John Conway proved there is a connection between the Monster group and the j-function in number theory. They dubbed this monstrous moonshine and made some conjectures, later proved by Richard Borcherds. He also made several early discoveries in Conway's Game of Life.[1]
