We plan to hold a memorial symposium in recognition of his great contributions to the mathematical community. Your participation will be much appreciated.
On February 9th, 2013 Hisashi Kobayashi (The Sherman Fairchild University Professor emeritus, Princeton University) gave an invited talk on his elder brother Shoshichi Kobayashi at the annual meeting of the San Francisco Akamon-kai (the alumni group of “Todai” or the University of Tokyo in the San Francisco-Bay area, its President is Takashi Nakamura), which was held at Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City. The title of the talk was “The Life and Achievements of Shoshichi Kobayashi.”
The February 2013 issue of Journal “Mathematical Seminar” is a special issue in honor of Prof. Shoshichi Kobayashi of U.C. Berkeley, who unexpectedly passed away on August 29, 2012. This issue traces the achievements of Prof. Kobayashi since his early days, whose contributions to differential geometry and the theory of complex manifolds have been internationally well recognized, and influenced many mathematicians not only in Japan but also in the world.
