Life and work of Aurel Cornea (6.7.1933 – 3.9.

2005) Jiˇ´ Vesel´, Prague rı y Aurel Cornea was born in Transylvania, part of Romania, in a small village Venetia ¸ de Jos as the first child of Nicolaie and Rozalia Cornea. His talent was apparent already in the elementary school and hence his parents moved after the World War II to the capital of Romania to secure for him a better education. Unfortunately, at the age of 14 he had an accident during one of his chemical experiments and he lost his sight. He missed one school year due to recovery but his enormous will helped him to get over and to continue in his studies. His interest shifted from chemistry to the queen of sciences – mathematics. And already in that time he made up his mind to be a mathematician as good as possible. He entered the Bucharest university where he studied mathematics with the help of his schoolmates and colleagues; some of them became his life friends and collaborators. There are stories of eye witnesses confirming Cornea’s ability to perform very complicated computations by heart which sound almost unbelievable (cf. an interesting article [ C1 ]). He became a student of Simion Stoilow and under his supervision he received his Ph.D. in 1960 for the thesis On the behavior of the analytic transformations at the Martin boundary. After his studies he worked at the Institute of Mathematics of Romanian Academy (1955 – 1978), then at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of University of Bucharest (since 1975) and also at the National Institute for Scientific and Technical Creation (INCREST). At the Bucharest University he taught stochastic processes, convexity and potential theory. With small interruptions he spent in Romania first 45 years of his life. A remark on the consequences of the political division of the world into blocks is in order: In the group of countries belonging to Warsaw treaty scientists had limited access to western sources (journals and books) as well as travels abroad were hardly possible. In case of Romania, frontiers up to 1966 were practically closed and journeys to countries outside the block were almost excluded. Even travels within the block were for some scientist difficult or impossible. As a consequence of this situation many people used those limited chances to leave the block and tried to build up new career abroad. (cf. [ O1 ]). In 1967 Corneliu Constantinescu and Cornea were invited by Brelot to Paris and a year later on the basis of Bauer’s invitation they both spent two months in Erlangen. At the same year Cornea met Adelheid Guber who just lost her husband Siegfried Guber (a pupil of Bauer) in a tragic accident in Romania. They became friends and started to exchange regularly letters. This exchange lasted for years (incidentally, Cornea wrote his letters himself and they were readable !). Occasionally they met, for example in Italian Stresa already in 1969 where Constantinescu and Cornea took part at the Summer school on potential theory organized there by CIME (and paid by NATO). In 1974 they met in Berlin and decided to join their lives. A visit of family Cornea in Romania followed, but there was a long way to realize the dream on possibility to get married. In 1978 there was an International Mathematical Congress of Mathematicians at Helsinki and also (now traditional) joint Romanian-Finnish Seminar on Complex Analysis in Joensuu. Instead of returning back to Romania, Cornea went to Canada where he learned how to work with special computer equipment for blind people. From there he went to USA and finally to Germany. This period of his life was

He organized the newly created Department of mathematics at Eichst¨tt university. Originally the plan of publishing house was that the book should be written in cooperation with Heinz Bauer but since Bauer was overloaded by other duties. He never broke contacts with Romania and quite often he invited collaborators from Romania to Eichst¨tt. Cornea worked on it again with Constantinescu only. The commission was impressed by Cornea’s talk but in the case of specialists in the field such as Bauer it was not a surprise. a a The book was appreciated and so the authors were offered to write another book for Springer. 2005 he died during a car accident. had a Romanian passport with a short-term German visa. The book appeared in 1972 under the title Potential theory on harmonic spaces. There is an article [ O2 ] of his colleagues describing content of monographs which Cornea wrote with different coauthors. Later during his stay in Romania. I quote from a Constantinescu’s article [ O1 ]: He [ Cornea ] became a candidate for a position at “Katholishe Universit¨t Eichst¨tt” and was elected. Since 1999 he was retired and within the frame of Deutsche Akademisher Austauschdienst he lectured (2000 – 2004) on potential theory at University of Bucharest. At this moment he was 47. As a mathematician he was a man of great invention. he lectured at a conference in Romania in course of The 10th RomanianFinnish Seminar in August 2005. His life was happy a and harmonic. The first book which he wrote with Nicu Boboc and Constantinescu was Potential theory on Riemannian surfaces (Romanian) [ B1 ]. biking (on tandem bike) and many other things. Orthodox. But also the head of the commission and the president of the university. his family and contacts with many of his colleagues and friends. a a blind. What was astonishing for all of us was the fact that he was able to ignore his blindness. and there were 47 mathematicians who were candidates for the position. He substantially contributed to the creation of so called Romanian school of potential theory (and related topics). While he lived in Romania he quite often explained things difficult to learn to his 17 years younger sister. lectured there on analysis and a conducted research in mathematics. On September 3. This was followed in 1963 by Ideale R¨nder Riemannscher Fl¨chen [ B2 ] written in collaboration with Constantinescu. He was interested in music which he loved very much. relatives and friends. with tremendous ability of concentration on problems and great sense to isolate the principal properties of mathematical objects he studied. Cornea spent the rest of his life in Germany. His unexpected death in a tragic accident was like a bolt from the blue: Full of plans. His success in obtaining the chair amounted to a miracle.2 very difficult but there were colleagues and friends who helped him. Let us turn to Cornea’s mathematics. He prepared texts of articles or slides for his lectures himself. During his stay in Frankfurt am Maine he applied for a position at Eichst¨tt. Professor Mosis (a theologian !) said. Shortly after receiving this position the dreamed wedding with Guber took place. devoted to his research. Cornea wrote another book Order and potential resolvent families of kernels (with . at home he was able to make little repairs. Later on he did the same for his stepdaughters and he was a very good teacher. but also for his beloved mathematics. His death was a great loss for his family. that even for him it was clear that the talk was the best. He did all: trips to mountains. The article [ O1 ] describes the cooperation of those two authors and friends.

In spite of his handicap Cornea visited many conferences and lectured as visiting professor of various universities: at Universit´ de Paris (1967. first 50 items). In view of this situation. . The result of their effort is this book. Bauer wrote in the Preface to the book: Based on ideas of Brelot. C. Unfortunately the book also marks the end of his long lasting cooperation (but not friendship !) with Constantinescu who left Romania in 1972 and changed the field of his interests to measure theory. As I already mentioned Cornea’s books are characterized in the article [ O2 ] and their content corresponds in a great extent with his articles (in the list of references approx. the theory of harmonic spaces has developed so rapidly in the last 15 years that up to now original papers. In the list of Cornea’s works items [ 1 ] – [ 14 ] (except [ 3 ] and [ 6 ]) are related to [ B2 ]. My memories on the first meeting with Cornea are connected with Summer school in Stresa in 1969. (. Cornea who had both considerably influenced the development of the theory. USA and other countries. Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe Universit¨t a Frankfurt (1978-80). e Universit¨t Erlangen-N¨renberg (1968). undertook the difficult task to present contemporary knowledge of harmonic spaces as completely as possible. 1988). For me and my colleagues it was the first chance to meet him and also other specialists in potential theory from France. And soon it was obvious that he was right. as a consequence of meeting Constantinescu and Cornea. . After Stalin’s death it substantially changed and thus political changes influenced very much the content of the book [ B3 ]: easier contact with foreign mathematics is recognizable. Many results previously published in articles by Cornea and his collaborators were included to those books. Mc Gill University at Montreal and Unia u versit de Montreal (1978. items [ 15 ] – [ 34 ] (with exceptions [ 22 ]. seminar and lecture notes were the only source for further studies in the field. we received the manuscript of [ B3 ] before its publication. 1986). [ 23 ]. He obtained title Doctor Honoris Causa from University of Bucharest (2002) and Romanian state awards (national orders Faithful Service in Commander Rank and Cultural Merit). Here another comment is appropriate: It was not easy to work on such monographs in Romania since up to 1954 access to results of “western” science was almost impossible. To some articles from the rest we will come back below. ) With this monograph the authors do not only close the serious gap in the existing mathematical literature. The meeting was for us of great importance not only as the first travel to a western country but also as the possibility to hear lectures on different aspects of potential theory. 1970). University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (1978. [ 25 ] – [ 29 ] and [ 33 ]) are related to [ B3 ]. At the same year when the book was published Cornea received the title docent doctor. the monograph certainly will also have a strong impact on future research in the field of potential theory.3 Gabriela Licea) [ B4 ] and while he was already in Eichst¨tt yet another book writa ten with Boboc and Gheorghe Bucur [ B5 ] had appeared: Order and convexity in potential theory: H-cones. 1982. To characterize Cornea’s mathematical interests and directions in which he worked we shall use his own summary written in 1999. In addition. Constantinescu and A. Osaka-City-University (1995).

The notion of controlled convergence was probably the last important topic on which Cornea worked not later than 1995 (cf. Here I want briefly describe on an example the technique and the corresponding result. Another example steams from the behavior of PWB-solution of the Dirichlet problem: Given a resolutive function f on the boundary U ∗ of an open set U ⊂ X there is such a superharmonic function k on U for which for any ε > 0 U Hf + ε k ∈ U f U U and U U Hf − ε k ∈ U f U where U f and U f are upper and lower Perron classes for f .4 Potential Theory on Riemannian Surfaces (Potential theory on hyperbolic Riemannian surfaces. fine topology.

Let f : ∆ → Y and h : U → Y be two mappings and let k be a real non-negative function on U . ∆ ⊂ X. Suppose that X. a generalization of Frostman theorem). resolvents and semi-groups).

Proof : Suppose (i) and put Un := x ∈ U : k(x) ≤ n . z) = 0 for every z ∈ Y . Fix a point y ∈ ∆ and suppose that y ∈ Un for an n ∈ N. Now let us assume (iii) and take a set A ⊂ U and y ∈ ∆ ∩ A. Using property (a) we can define value f (y) := limx→y. than f (y) = x→y. x∈A x→y. (b) If lim sup k(x) = +∞ . . x∈A ≤ lim sup x→y. Theorem : For a mapping h : U → Y and a function k : U → [ 0. x∈A lim h(x) . f (y) − θ k(x) ≤ θ . f (y)) − ε k(x) ≤ 0 . than x→y.5 For any A ⊂ U and any point y ∈ A ∩ ∆ we have (a) If lim sup k(x) < +∞ . f (y) ≤ x→y. n ∈ N. x∈A x→y. f (y) − ε k(x) + εn ≤ εn . Suppose (ii) and fix y ∈ ∆ and ε > 0. then lim sup dist h(x). f (y) − ε k(x) ≤ dist h(x). 1 + k(x) from which we obtain dist h(x). x∈A dist h(x). Since it holds for any ε > 0 the estimate gives condition (a) from the definition of controlled convergence. Fix 0 < ε < +∞. f (y)) ≤ θ. On the rest of ∆ choose f (y) arbitrarily. x∈A k(x) ≤ n for an n ∈ N. +∞) the following conditions are equivalent: (i) Function k is a control function for mapping h and ∆ . Other properties of control functions are less obvious. x∈U dist(h(x). x∈A ≤ lim sup x→y. It is easily seen that if k is a control function for mapping h and set ∆. f (y) − ε k(x) + lim sup εk(x) ≤ x→y. then any function of the form k := n=1 αn kn with αn > 0 is a control function for each mapping hn and the set ∆n . x∈A lim dist(h(x). x∈A dist h(x). then αk is for any α > 0 again a control function for mapping h and set ∆. The definition does not depend on n. 1 + k(x) Then function k is called a control function for the mapping h and the set ∆. For 0 < θ ≤ ε there is a neighborhood V (y) of y such that for x ∈ U ∩ V (y) we have dist(h(x). x∈U lim dist(h(x). x∈U dist h(x). Similarly. If lim supx→y. 1 + k(x) (iii) There is a mapping f : ∆ → Y such that for any ε ∈ (0. f (y)) = 0. if for U and any n ∈ N function kn is a control function for a mapping hn and the ∞ set ∆n . (ii) There exists a mapping f : ∆ → Y such that for every y ∈ ∆ we have x→y. From it follows lim supx→y. x∈Un h(x).

In this way he obtained solution of the Dirichlet problem in harmonic spaces. x∈A 1 dist h(x). On his grave there is a symbol ∆u = 0 .

Theorem : For any resolutive function f : ∆ → Y there exists a unique solution of the Dirichlet problem on U with boundary data f . He had a special sense of humor and always wanted to please friends. Let us briefly formulate what control convergence gives for harmonic mappings. In the classical case it is the PWB-solution for any “ classically resolutive” function f and the solution can be obtained even by considering upper and lower Perron classes for f consisting entirely from harmonic functions. z ≤ 1 + k(x) 1 n + dist f (y). 2. k(x) ≤ n } .

If the conditions of the Theorem are satisfied by h. f and Un := { x ∈ U . dist h(x). then h is convergent to f controlled by k = k1 + k2 .
