In August 2016, the World lost a greatly original and highly influential mathematical analyst, Alan McIntosh. For almost fifty years, Alan McIntosh had been a symbol of the strength of Australian mathematics, and a key figure in the fields of harmonic analysis and operator theory worldwide. The 2018 Special Year in Analysis at the MSI will start with a conference honouring Alan’s memory, and mathematical legacy.
It will be a milestone event, bringing together Alan’s former students and collaborators, as well as some of the very best international experts in his field.
