On Thursday, January 15, Professor Martin Silverstein
of our Mathematics Department died tragically in an automobile accident.
He is survived by his wife Anne and three children.
Professor Silverstein was a pioneer on the interface of probability theory and harmonic analysis. His work has had tremendous influence for more than three decades. He was a valuable member of the mathematics department, a friend to us all, and he will be sorely missed.
The convocation will be on March 26 at 1:30pm
in Brookings 300 and there will be three math talks
on March 27. This is NOT a math conference,
but is instead a personal remembrance of Marty Silverstein by
his friends and colleagues.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Cheshire Inn, 6306 Clayton
Road, Clayton, MO 63117. The phone number there is 314-647-7300.
