We remember Distinguished Professor Emeritus János Aczel

János Aczel

We are sad to share the news that János Aczel passed away on January 1, 2020 following a brief illness only six days following his 95th birthday. János became a professor in the Department of Pure Mathematics in 1965 after holding positions at the University of Cologne, Lajos Kossuth University, University of Miskolc, and University of Szeged.

Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1924, János completed his bachelor and master’s degrees at the University of Budapest, as well as his doctorate in mathematical analysis.
