Homage to Professor Abraham Seidenberg (1916–1988)
Professor Abraham Seidenberg died on May 3, 1988. He belonged to the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley, USA, and was a member of the Editorial Board of the Gaṇita Bhāratī. He was a great scholar and was actively involved in research work on history of ancient mathematics. A few months before his death, he had sent his manuscript “On the Volume of a Sphere” for publication in the Archive for History of Exact Sciences (= AHES). He could not correct the proofs of the article which was published posthumously in December 1988. Perhaps this may be his last paper.
