Person: KumanoGo, Hitoshi
Hitoshi KumanoGo was a Japanese mathematician who specialised in partial differential equations.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Entering Osaka University after graduating from high school, KumanoGo studied mathematics and graduated in 1958.
 As is frequently the case, the problem which KumanoGo studied was to extend work which had been completed earlier by his supervisor.
 In 1962 KumanoGo was appointed as an assistant at Osaka University.
 During these years KumanoGo published a series of papers which studied the local and global uniqueness of the solutions of the Cauchy problem for partial differential equations.
 In two papers KumanoGo also studied nonuniqueness of solutions of the Cauchy problem.
 KumanoGo spent the two academic years 196769 visiting the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.
 These were years of great benefit to KumanoGo who was able to develop many ideas in conversations with Kurt Friedrichs, Peter Lax, Louis Nirenberg and others.
 In 1971 KumanoGo was promoted to full professor.
 One other important monograph written by KumanoGo should be mentioned.
 In addition to his work on pseudodifferential operators, KumanoGo published a series of papers on the product of Fourier integral operators.
 KumanoGo suffered ill health and was admitted to Osaka Hospital in May 1981.
 At the height of his mathematical contributions at the age of 46, KumanoGo sadly died.
Born 4 October 1935, Arita, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan. Died 24 August 1982, Osaka, Japan.
