R.I.P. Bjarni Jónsson

I only learned today that Bjarni Jónsson, a famous and highly-regarded Icelandic mathematician and Distinguished Professor at Vanderbilt died back in late September this year.

Not someone I knew personally, naturally, but I'd encountered his name here and there before. As always, all the best wishes to his colleagues, friends, family and loved ones, and everyone who knew him.
