Date: August 04, 2019
Subject: Rémi Arcangéli (1928 - 2019)

Sorrowfully we let you know that Dr. Remi Arcangeli passed away in July
at the age of 91 years.

Remi started his academic career in Toulouse, where he studied
Mathematics, he completed his these de 3eme cycle in 1963 and later,
in 1974, under the supervision of Marc Atteia, he got his these
d'Etat. He moved to the University of Pau in 1973, where he hold
several positions up to his retirement, as 1st class professor, in 1993.

Remi's early contributions dealt with several questions in ordinary
and partial differential equations, ill-posed problems, where he
contributed the discrepancy principle named after him, and operator
theory. The core of his work, however, lay in the fields of numerical
analysis and approximation theory, mainly polynomial and rational
interpolation, spline functions, scattered data fitting, sampling
inequalities, error bounds, and finite elements.

Mathematical research was always Remi's passion, which he knew how to
pass on his colleagues and doctorate students. Even after his
retirement to Arbas, the French Pyrenean small village where he was
born, Remi remained very active and wrote a book and several papers.

Remi was a great person, who excelled in helpfulness, integrity and
sound advices. He will be sadly missed by his colleagues and friends,
which would surely want to join us in expressing our most profound
condolences to his wife Simone, sons Jean-Paul, Pierre-Noel and
Francois, and grandchildren. We shall remember him with affection and
great gratitude.
