Annual lecture series in memory of Prof. Aryeh Dvoretzky
In 2009, the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem established an annual lecture series in memory of Professor Aryeh Dvoretzky (19162008).Each lecturer will deliver two lectures. It is suggested that one lecture be accessible to the university scientific community at large (colloquiumstyle) and the additional lecture may be more specialized and of interest to professional mathematicians and specialists.
2017 Prof. Alex Eskin Chicago
Both lectures will take place in Lecture Hall 2, Manchester House (Mathematics building), Edmond J. Safra Campus. Givat Ram, Jerusalem .

Prof. Dvoretzky was one of the founding fathers of the institute. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Hebrew University in 1941, under the supervision of Michael Fekete. Dvoretzky was appointed Professor of Mathematics at the Hebrew University in 1951, and was the first alumnus of the Hebrew University to become a full professor in it. He was a leading analyst and probabilist and had contributed greatly to the development of Israeli mathematical research, including functional analysis, mathematical statistics, probability, game theory and Higherdimensional algebraic geometry.
He was deeply involved in university administration, and among
his contributions were Dean of the Faculty of Sciences (1955) and Vice
President of the Hebrew University (1959). He also served as chief scientist for the Ministry of Defense. For his many achievements, he received the Israel Prize for Exact Sciences in 1973. Later he became president of the Israeli Academy of Sciences (1974), of which he was one of the founding members, as well as serving as president of The Weizmann Institute of Sciences (19851988).
