Remembering Eduard S. Belinsky (1947-2004)


Eduard Belinsky was among the participants of the Oberwolfach Workshop in October 2003.

Eduard was born on Sept. 26, 1947 in Kostopl (Ukraine). He studied mathematics at the Donetsk State University (Ukraine, USSR) from 1965 to 1970. His first teacher was V.I. Beliy, under whose guidance he wrote his first article in mathematics. In 1977, he obtained a PhD under the supervision of Professor Roald Trigub. Only after Gorbachev's rise to power, Eduard was allowed to hold a position at the Donetsk Polytechnic Institute. In 1993, he and his family moved to Israel, where he received a research grant in Technion (Haifa) for three years. He was a senior professor at the Zimbabwe University (1996-1999), and became, in 1999, a senior professor at the University of West Indies in Barbados. He died of cancer on Oct. 7, 2004.

Eduard published 45 research articles, and co-authored (with R.M. Trigub) the book "Fourier Analysis and Approximation of Functions" (Kluwer, Dordrecht, 2004).

His mathematics will stay with us all.
