It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Martin Eugene Muldoon after a short illness. Martin is acknowledged by all who knew him as having been an extraordinarily patient, gentle, wise man who always kept a cool head and had a delightful sense of humour. He was always supportive of his family and many friends. One old friend remembers him as “a man of few words, but much presence”.
In addition to teaching and research, Martin acted as an advisor and graduate supervisor; gave talks on mathematics to high school and elementary school students; organized conferences; acted on academic committees; and played an active role in his union. Muldoon was a member of the SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions; the Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics; and Science for Peace.
A memorial service will be held in Toronto, September 13.
excerpted from Globe and Mail / legacy.com obituary. Martin served on Science for Peace’s executive committee for many years, most recently as treasurer.
