Dear colleagues,

Some very sad news — Erik Palmgren passed away unexpectedly this week at his home in Stockholm, after a short period of bad health.

Besides being insightful and influential in his own work, mostly on constructive mathematics and related topics in logic, Erik was also a generous and sensitive mentor to many students and younger colleagues, first in Uppsala and then in Stockholm.  He will be deeply missed.
