On Phạm Anh Minh's death

Nguyễn H V Hưng

Geometry & Topology Monographs 11 (2007) 177–178

DOI: 10.2140/gtm.2007.11.177

Phạm Anh Minh suddenly passed away on October 23, 2004 after a massive stroke. Normally, he had been healthy. Minh was born on April 23, 1960 and grew up in Hue, a former capital of Vietnam. The funeral took place on October 28, 2004.

Minh received his PhD degree in 1990 in the University of Hanoi (the former name of the Vietnam National University, Hanoi) under the guidance of Professor Huỳnh Mùi, who had also been my thesis supervisor. Since then, Minh worked in the Department of Mathematics, University of Hue, where he was promoted to associate professor in 2002.

Minh was an expert in the cohomology of p–groups. He had been very hard working. In the last few years, he worked on the nilpotency of the Essential Cohomology of finite groups. He had many coauthors and I am happy to have been one of them. His visitors and coauthors enjoyed his open-minded friendship. In August 2004, several colleagues met him and listened to his talk in the International School and Conference in Algebraic Topology in honor of Huỳnh Mùi, Hanoi 2004.

Minh’s death is a heavy loss of the Vienam Topology School and of the Vietnam Mathematical Community in general. Minh left his wife, Phuong, and his 16-year son, Nin.
