Eric Jaligot (1972-2013)

28th July, 2013

I have just heard the very sad news that Eric Jaligot has died.


I did not know Eric well, although our paths crossed several times and we once collaborated in a piece of work [pdf] on the model theory of groups, an area in which Eric was a leading expert. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind and generous with his time, and often to be seen with a wry smile on his face. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by his many friends within the model-theory community and beyond.


A tribute page is hosted at the Institut Camille Jordan in Lyon, where Eric was based.

    As someone of an older generation, I had a chance to follow Eric’s work starting from his very first paper; his death is a great loss to mathematics. He was able to do things other people could not.
