An Appreciation of James Serrin

  • Patrizia Pucci

Abstract

I am particularly happy to have the opportunity of these proceedings to write a profile of one of my distinguished teachers, with whom I have also had the good fortune to collaborate for so many years, Professor James Serrin. Before entering into my recollection of these years of close association, I would first desire to mention the tribute that Professor Clifford Truesdell wrote in the volume of papers, Analysis and Continuum Mechanics, dedicated to James Serrin on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, published by Springer-Verlag, in gratitude for his many years of work as coeditor of the Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis.

Keywords
