Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal

Year 2014

The Bolyai Institute of the University of Szeged is pleased to announce hereby that the Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal for the year 2014 has been awarded to

Zoltán Sebestyén, Emeritus Professor of the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary.

Since 1973 Zoltán Sebestyén has contributed seventeen definitive research papers to Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum on functional analysis. Three of them are strongly related to topics studied by B. Sz.-Nagy, containing relevant results on operator moment problems. Others enrich the theory of operator extensions with significant theorems.

The Medal was presented to Zoltán Sebestyén at 14:00, December 4, 2014 in the Bolyai Institute. On this occasion he delivered a lecture ``Unbounded operators on Hilbert space".
