Person: Levin (2), Frank
Frank Levin was an American mathematician who worked mainly in infinite group theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- It turned out the chief had given Frank the wrong data to begin with.
- On his frequent trips to Belgrade, Frank took the opportunity of stopping in London, where he worked with me.
- Frank was one of those few mathematicians who never gave up working on mathematics when he retired, and indeed, he was still working on a paper with Narain Gupta on the fateful day when he had a stroke.
- Frank was a very quiet, modest man.
- Frank did not swear, mainly because he had no violence in his make-up.
- He did not even curse when he told me about a friend who had used Frank to guarantee a loan, and then decamped leaving the debt to Frank.
Born 19 June 1927, Dayton, Ohio, USA. Died 2 October 2011, Swansea, Wales.
