Person: Țarină, Marian
Marian Țarină was a Romanian mathematician who worked in geometry and was also interested in the history of mathematics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 It was therefore part of Romania long before Țarină was born and the city of Turda was where he grew up.
 The two universities combined to become the BabeșBolyai University in 1959 so, after serving as an assistant in the Babeș University, Țarină became a lecturer in the BabeșBolyai University in 1960.
 Țarină used methods developed by his thesis advisor Vrănceanu to attack the case of subprojective spaces of order n−3n  3n−3 in his 1964 paper.
 The entire didactical activity of Professor Marian Țarină was at the University of Cluj.
 Țarină taught many courses at Cluj on a variety of different topics such as: Differential Geometry, Fundamental Algebraic Topology, Symmetric Spaces, Lie Groups, Groups, and the History of Mathematics.
 Throughout his career, Țarină published more than 50 research papers and presented almost 200 scientific communications.
 Comment: In this note, Țarină discusses a generalisation of the projective and the conformal equivalence of connections on a manifold.

 Comment: In this paper, Țarină gives a few ways of defining invariant connections in principal fibre bundles and establishes some properties about the order of invariant connections.
 Comment: Țarină writes, "Many geometric objects in the theory of Finsler spaces present an obvious analogy with the case of linear connections.
 Țarină unexpected died in May 1992 at Oradea in his sixtieth year.
 My contacts with Marian Țarină showed me the special human qualities of that excellent mathematician: warmth, modesty, and humour.
 My memories of Professor Marian Țarină will remain alive throughout my life.
 A Symposium in Geometry was organized on the occasion of the 190th anniversary of Janos Bolyai and of the 60th anniversary of Marian Țarină at BabeșBolyai University in ClujNapoca in 1993.
 The regional Romanian school mathematics and computer science competition is now named the 'Marian Țarină competition'.
Born 15 August 1932, Turda, Romania. Died 31 May 1992, Oradea, Romania.
