Our colleague Pierre Cartigny passed away last Sunday. He was a member of GREQE, then GREQAM from 1988 to 2010 and has been visiting our research unit in 2003. He trained many students in mathematics during these years.
Pierre Cartigny was an extremely kind, helpful and very human man. His pedagogical skills have been unanimously recognized over the years. He knew how to transmit his love of mathematics to the most reluctant! With him, research was above all a rich relationship and a human adventure. This is a great loss for our community.
