Philippe Flajolet, the Father of Analytic Combinatorics

Authors: Bruno Salvy ORCID-iD; Bob Sedgewick ; Michèle Soria ; Wojtek Szpankowski ; Brigitte Vallée

    Philippe Flajolet, mathematician and computer scientist extraordinaire, suddenly passed away on March 22, 2011, at the prime of his career. He is celebrated for opening new lines of research in analysis of algo- rithms, developing powerful new methods, and solving difficult open problems. His research contributions will have impact for generations, and his approach to research, based on curiosity, a discriminating taste, broad knowledge and interest, intellectual integrity, and a genuine sense of camaraderie, will serve as an inspiration to those who knew him for years to come
