Person: Loday, JeanLouis
JeanLouis Loday wasa French mathematician whoo worked in the field of cyclic homology.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Loday was awarded his agrégation de mathématiques in 1969 and he went to the University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg where he undertook research for his doctorate.
 Loday, who was Karoubi's first doctoral student, was awarded his Ph.D. in 1975 for his thesis Kthéorie algébrique et représentations de groupes Ⓣ(Algebraic Ktheory and group representations).
 The 1973 publication was in the proceedings of the Conference "Classical algebraic Ktheory and connections with arithmetic" which Loday attended in Seattle in the United States.
 It was at the University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg that Loday spent his whole career.
 Another topic that Loday worked on during the 1980s was cyclic homology, some of the work being undertaken jointly with Daniel Quillen.
 Loday published the 450page text Cyclic homology in 1992.
 In the 1990s, Loday also worked on operads, a topic that he continued to study for the rest of his life.
 We should mention that Loday also published under the pseudonym Guillaume William Zinbiel (Zinbiel is Leibniz written backwards).
 Loday was a joint editor of these proceedings (under the name JeanLouis Loday) of the International Conference held at the Chern Institute of Mathematics at Nankai University, China, in July 2010.
 The piece is a lovely illustration of Loday's humour.
 Loday died in a tragic boating accident, falling from his boat off Les Sablesd'Olonne.
Born 12 January 1946, Le Pouliguen, Pays de la Loire, France. Died 6 June 2012, Les Sablesd'Olonne, France.
