2009-10-06

I.M. Gelfand, one of the most eminent mathematicians of
the 20th century, died on October 5th, aged 96.
Gelfand contributed to many areas of mathematics, notably
functional analysis, harmonic analysis, differential equations and
discrete mathematics. Later in his life he also became interested in
theoretical biology.

In addition to his papers Gelfand wrote more than 30 books,
from school manuals to research monographs of which his
four volumes “Generalised Functions” are most well known.

For many years he directed the famous Gelfand seminar at Moscow
State University that was resumed at Rutgers after his emigration to the
US in the early nineties.
