**Arthur C. Norman**,

a British mathematician, computer scientist, and Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge,
where he has previously been a director of studies for computer science ^{[2]}.
His research interests include functional programming, symbolic computation, computer algebra systems and programming languages.
In the 80s, while also affiliated with Acornsoft, he was involved in developing the Acornsoft LISP interpreter ^{[3]},
and, along with Nick Pelling (Orlando), he contributed to the chess program Acornsoft Chess ^{[4]},
both for the BBC Micro. In 1983, along with John P. Fitch, the Fitch-Norman Partnership was established, which became **Codemist Ltd** in 1988 ^{[5]},
developing and trading the Norcroft compiler suite targeting RISC OS.
