It would have found more positive expression if it had not been deflected into political channels (he was an ardent Communist—some of his sociopolitical writings are still highly regarded). Despite such distractions, he gathered around him in London an outstanding international research group. Among the thoughts that most fascinated him from the outset were ideas of packing. They eventually found expression in his study of the structure of liquids, which proceeded directly along the down-to-earth lines advocated by Lord Kelvin, the founder of the ‘hands-on’ school of British crystallography whose crowning achievement was the discovery of the spiral structure of DNA.

The first is the Vorono¨ı decomposition (chapter 2). The Vorono¨ı cell is a polyhedron, the interior of which consists of all points of the space which are closer to the centre of the given sphere than to any other. This was the kind of decomposition adopted by Fejes T´oth to reduce the Kepler problem to the ‘determination of the minimum of a function of a finite number of variables’. But this method meets with difficulties for some local configurations, such as when a sphere is surrounded by 12 spheres with centres on the vertices of a regular ½ Only east of the Atlantic are there extra letters which maintain a useful distinction between these two spellings.

So inspired was he by this notion that his last paper was entitled ‘The Submechanics of the Universe’. But he hedged his bets by saying that his work also offered ‘a new field for philosophical and mathematical research quite independent of the ether’. Most of his readers probably agreed with J J Thomson that this ‘was the most obscure of his writings, as at this time his mind was beginning to fail’. Oliver Lodge diplomatically wrote that ‘Osborne Reynolds was a genius whose ideas are not to be despised, and until we know more about the ether it is just as well to bear this heroic speculation in mind’.
