Person: Arino, Ovide
Ovide Arino was a French mathematician who worked in differential equations and Banach spaces.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- Pau is a town in the Pyrenees and the university there had opened in 1970, just three years before Arino was appointed.
- In the years following his appointment Arino published a number of papers, all joint publications with mathematicians such as Claude Delode, Jean-Paul Penot, Pierre Séguier, Serge Gautier, and Kacem Khouk.
- Arino spent most of his career at the University of Pau.
- Ovide was always active and spent a large portion of his career organizing and teaching.
- At closing session in the 2003 Alcala meeting, Dr Rafa Bravo, the chair of the Second Mathematical Ecology meeting referred to Ovide as the brain of the conference and expressed his admiration for Ovide's ability to work literally 24 hours a day.
- Even the greatest brain is physiologically limited in the amount of work it can perform and Ovide left us a few weeks after the Alcala meeting.
- Following Arino's death, several tributes to him have been made.
- In May 2004, the SFBT awarded the Prix Ovide Arino during its first international conference.
- In June 2004, the Université Abou Bekr Belkaid, Tlemcen, Algeria, awarded the Prix Ovide Arino 2004 to Tarik Touaoula.
Born 24 April 1947, Toulouse, France. Died 29 September 2003, Bedlewo, Poland.
