Summary and Info
The book is a commemorative volume honoring the mathematician Paul R. Halmos (1916-2006), who contributed passionately to mathematics in manifold ways, among them by basic research, by unparalleled mathematical exposition, by unselfish service to the mathematical community, and, not least, by the inspiration others found in his dedication to that community.Halmos made fundamental contributions in several areas of mathematics. This volume emphasises Halmos's contributions to operator theory, his venue for most of his mathematical life. The core of the volume is a series of expository articles by prominent operator theorists providing an overview of how operator theory prospered during the Halmos era, in no small measure thanks to Halmos's leadership and penetrating insights.
