My Debt to Henry P. McKean Jr.

Part of the Contemporary Mathematicians book series (CM)


I was very privileged to have had as research supervisors, David Kendall and Harry Reuter. I learnt a great deal from them and from Eugene Dynkin, André Meyer, and of course, Paul Lévy. But it has been to Henry McKean that I have most often turned for inspiration.
