February 2013 Special Issue of Journal “Mathematical Seminar” (in Japanese) in Honor of Shoshichi Kobayashi

Hyoshi-300The February 2013 issue of Journal “Mathematical Seminar” (in Japanese) is a special issue in honor of Shoshichi Kobayashi of U.C. Berkeley, who unexpectedly passed away on August 29, 2012. He was an emeritus professor of mathematics at the U.C. Berkeley and was the oldest member of the San Francisco Akamon-kai (the alumni group of UTokyo in the San Francisco region). This issue traces the achievements of Prof. Kobayashi since his early days, whose contributions to differential geometry and the theory of complex manifolds have been internationally well recognized, and influenced many mathematicians not only in Japan but also in the world.
