Amir Aczel 1950-2015
The Center is saddened to announce the death of our long-time friend and visiting researcher, Amir Aczel. You can find his obituary from the New York Times here: Amir Aczel, Author of Scientific Cliffhanger, dies at 65. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made via Go Fund Me, to Amir’s last project to have the ancient Khmer stele with the world’s oldest recorded zero installed at the National Museum of Cambodia. More information on the project and Dr. Aczel’s research can be found here: The Zig-Zagging History Of The Number Zero.
There will be an event in Dr. Aczel’s memory at the Brookline Booksmith, Harvard Street, Brookline, on February 4th at 7pm.
He will be greatly missed.
