Eckart Viehweg, 1948-2010

We’re saddened to announce that Eckart Viehweg, of the University of Duisburg-Essen, passed away on January 29 after a short illness.

Viehweg was a distinguished algebraic geometer who spoke at the 1986 ICM in Berkeley, and in 2003 was awarded the Leibniz prize with his wife, Hélène Esnault. Here are some photos of Viehweg from MFO, an obituary (English translation here), and a touching dedication to Viehweg in his last work with Esnault.
