Eugene B. Fabes IMA Directorship Fund
This fund supports an endowed IMA directorship. This fund is named after Eugene E. Fabes, former head and professor of the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. Fabes was a well-loved friend and supporter of the IMA, and the fund is aptly named in his memory. An initial gift to start this fund was provided by Donald and Phyllis Kahn.
In 1997, Fabes passed away just after he turned sixty and was still at the peak of his productive career. A list of his mathematical achievements can be found in his obituary in the Amer. Math. Soc. Notices, v. 45 (1998), pp. 706-708, and in the Journal of Fourier Analysis and Appl., v. 4, no. 4/5 (1998). The annual Rivière-Fabes Symposium on Analysis and PDE was formally established in 1998 in honor of Fabes and Nestor and is held each year at the University of Minnesota. Sponsored by the NSF, the Rivière-Fabes Fund at the University of Minnesota, and the IMA through their Participating Institution Conference Program.
