  • Today is a sad day for anyone who knows Prof. Daniela di Serafino.  Her departure is a big loss for the community of Mathematics, in particular, Numerical Analysis. She was one of the keynote speakers of the 1st PRIMO Workshop (here). The 2nd PRIMO Workshop will be distinguished with a memorial for her in honor of her impressive role in the scientific community. Our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. May her soul rest in perfect peace!
