RIP Leon Knopoff @ 06:59 am

I was sorry to hear the news of the death of Prof. Knopoff. I had him as a professor for a class or two, and also assisted him as a TA, and bumped into him occasionally when I worked at IGPP. He was invariably cheerful and enthusiastic; both qualities were also invariably infectious, with happy result.

Very sad to hear this. I had him for Math Methods, and that was one of the most useful classes I ever took. He was always so enthusiastic, that is definitely the word to describe him, and ebullient.
