Henri Cartan 1904-2008

2008-08-14

On August 13th, Henri Cartan died at the age of 104. He was one of the most influential mathematicians of the 20th century and the last living founder of the Bourbaki group.

His enormous contributions to modern mathematics are reflected by publications during the span of more than seventy years, ranging from his first paper ``Sur quelques théorèmes de M. R. Nevanlinna" in the Comptes Rendus of 1927 (at that time, still reviewed in the Jahrbuch) to the obituary of Samuel Eilenberg in the Gazette des Mathématiciens in 1998 (Zbl 0917.01034).
