Paul Richard Halmos, who lived a lifetime of unbounded devotion to arithmetic and to the mathematical neighborhood, died on the age of ninety on October 2, 2006. This quantity is a memorial to Paul through operator theorists he encouraged. Paul’sinitial research,beginning together with his 1938Ph.D. thesis on the college of Illinois less than Joseph Doob, was once in likelihood, ergodic thought, and degree thought. A shift happened within the Nineteen Fifties whilst Paul’s curiosity in foundations led him to invent a subject matter he termed algebraic common sense, leading to a succession of papers on that topic showing among 1954 and 1961, and the publication Algebraic common sense, released in 1962. Paul’s ?rst papers in natural operator thought seemed in 1950. After 1960 Paul’s study all in favour of Hilbert house operators, a topic he seen as enc- passing ?nite-dimensional linear algebra. past his examine, Paul contributed to arithmetic and to its neighborhood in manifold methods: as a well known expositor, as an cutting edge instructor, as a tireless editor, and during unstinting carrier to the yankee Mathematical Society and to the Mathematical organization of the US. a lot of Paul’s in?uence ?owed at a private point. Paul had a real, uncalculating curiosity in humans; he constructed a tremendous variety of friendships through the years, either with mathematicians and with nonmathematicians. a lot of his mathematical buddies, together with the editors ofthisvolume,whileabsorbingabundantquantitiesofmathematicsatPaul’sknee, discovered from his suggestion and his instance what it ability to be a mathematician.

New PDF release: Sign-Changing Critical Point Theory

Many nonlinear difficulties in physics, engineering, biology and social sciences could be diminished to discovering severe issues of functionals. whereas minimax and Morse theories supply solutions to many events and difficulties at the lifestyles of a number of severe issues of a practical, they generally can't supply much-needed extra homes of those severe issues.

Algebraic Multiplicity of Eigenvalues of Linear Operators: by Julián López-Gómez,Carlos Mora-Corral PDF

This e-book brings jointly all to be had effects concerning the idea of algebraic multiplicities. It first bargains a vintage path on finite-dimensional spectral conception after which offers the main basic effects on hand concerning the lifestyles and forte of algebraic multiplicities for genuine non-analytic operator matrices and households.

Marco Stevens's The Kadison-Singer Property (SpringerBriefs in Mathematical PDF

This ebook provides an entire category of all algebras with the Kadison-Singer estate, while limiting to separable Hilbert areas. The Kadison-Singer estate bargains with the next query: given a Hilbert area H and an abelian unital C*-subalgebra A of B(H), does each natural nation on A expand uniquely to a natural nation on B(H)?
