YAHYA OULD HAMIDOUNE the Mauritanian mathematician 1948 – 11 March 2011
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 18 August 2011
Yahya ould Hamidoune passed away in Paris on 11 March 2011 after a brief illness, leaving insufficient time for his friends and colleagues to express their indebtedness to him for his kindness and generosity, both in mathematics and in everyday life. Yahya was a discreet individual, always looking for the essential rather than the superficial, and certainly did not receive the recognition he deserved. May this modest testimony render justice to this singular man.
