Leon Ehrenpreis, a Unique Mathematician

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics book series (PROM, volume 16)


What made Ehrenpreis’ mathematics so unique was his bold approach to classical problems, and his interest in finding an overarching and unifying framework for a variety of apparently unrelated problems. In this note I will try to highlight this characteristic, by looking at some of Ehrenpreis’ papers which are not, strictly speaking, connected with either the Fundamental Principle or the Radon Transform.
