Mathematical Essays in Honor of Gian-Carlo Rota (Progress in by Bruce Sagan,Richard P. Stanley PDF

By Bruce Sagan,Richard P. Stanley

In April of 1996 an array of mathematicians converged on Cambridge, Massachusetts, for the Rotafest and Umbral Calculus Workshop, con­ ferences celebrating Gian-Carlo Rota's sixty fourth birthday. It appeared applicable while feting one of many world's nice combinatorialists to have the anniversary be an influence of two instead of the extra mundane sixty five. The over seventy-five par­ ticipants incorporated Rota's doctoral scholars, coauthors, and different colleagues from greater than a dozen international locations. As a different testomony to the breadth and intensity of his impact, the lectures ranged over a wide selection of issues from invariant idea to algebraic topology. This quantity is a suite of articles written in Rota's honor. a few of them have been offered on the Rotafest and Umbral Workshop whereas others have been written specially for this Festschrift. we are going to say a bit approximately each one paper and indicate how they're attached with the mathematical contributions of Rota himself.
