In Memoriam: Attila Bčla von Keviczky 1941-2008 

Professor Attila Keviczky of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics passed away in the spring. He was born in Hungary and moved to North America in his teens. He held three university degrees in mathematics: a BSc from Fordham University in 1964, an MSc from the City College of New York in 1965, and a PhD from McGill in 1976.

Keviczky joined Concordia as an assistant professor in 1968 and was promoted to associate professor in 1980. His principal field of research was integral equations and operator theory.

Although he published throughout his career, recently he published in the area of mathematical physics with colleagues at Concordia and at the University of Prince Edward Island. He will be remembered for his friendly charm, his humour, his devotion to his students, and his love of mathematical analysis, in particular his complete mastery of all sections of his favourite mathematical book, Functional Analysis by Riesz and Nagy. He will be missed by his friends, colleagues and students, as well as his daughters, Heidi and Heicke.
