Gene Howard Golub (February 29, 1932--November 16, 2007), Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, was one of the preeminent numerical analysts of his generation. He was also a person of broad influence with the computer science, applied mathematics, and statistics community. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and of the National Academy of Engineering, and influenced many of us who worked in these fields. Professor Golub died quite suddenly of acute myeloid leukemia in November 16, 2007.
In honor of Professor Golub, several gatherings will be held throughout the world on February 29, on what would have been his 19th birthday. Here at Penn State, our gathering will be a sequence of rememberances of Professor Golub and his influence on our lives and careers. We welcome you to please join us. Refreshments will be served and, if possible, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.Jesse Barlow and Don Heller
