Friedrich Hirzebruch, 1927-2012
Friedrich Hirzebruch, the leading German
mathematician of the second half of the
twentieth century, died May 27 at the age of
84. His early work in the 1950s on the
signature theorem and on the
high-dimensional Riemann-Roch problem
made important use of the abstract tools introduced into
topology and complex analysis by the French school and was
one of the first triumphs of the conceptual mathematics that
would flourish in subsequent decades. (Image: Max Planck
Institute for Mathematics.) ...
