Lars Hörmander, who received a Fields Medal in 1962, died November 25 at the age of 81. Hörmander was a powerful analyst who revolutionized the modern theory of partial differential equations. Among many other contributions, his theories of pseudodifferential operators and Fourier integral operators will have lasting value. He was a professor at Lund University from 1968 until his retirement in 1996 and served as director of the Mittag-Leffler Institute from 1984 to 1986.
