Dear colleagues,

Some very sad news — as many of you may have already heard, Erik Palmgren passed away unexpectedly earlier this week at his home in Stockholm, after a short period of bad health.

There will be a memorial ceremony (minnesstund) at the department in Stockholm this Friday (22 Nov) at 11.00.

Besides being insightful and influential in his own work, mostly on constructive mathematics and related topics in logic, Erik was also a generous and sensitive mentor to many students and younger colleagues, first in Uppsala and then here in Stockholm. He will be deeply missed.
