I am a human being. I am a mathematician who speaks Swedish, Esperanto, English, and French. I am also a guest professor at Uppsala University. The mathematicians who have meant most for me were Lars Hörmander (1931--2012) and André Martineau (1930--1972).
I have been the main scientific advisor of eighteen doctoral students during the period 1974--2016. Four of these obtained their degrees after my retirement (the years 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2016).
In school I studied English, German, and French. My most inspiring teacher was Karl Axnäs (1899--1984). I started to study Russian at the age of 13. I have been more than one year in the United States and more than two years in France. I studied Persian (2007--2009) and Classical Greek (2010--2011) at Uppsala University and, during the academic year 2015/2016, Yiddish at Lund University. In July 2016 I participated in a seven-day course in Yiddish in Weimar.
I have done research on partial differential equations; then on complex analys and complex geometry. My latest paper on complex geometry (16-1) was published in March 2016.
Now I am mainly working on digital geometry, mathematical morphology, and discrete optimization.
