Looking Back

I have been asked by the editors to write a few biographical remarks. I have spent most of my professional life in the Department of Mathematics (née Department of Pure Mathematics) of The Weizmann Institute. Thirty odd years seem to have sped by, although the days, weeks, and months often went by very slowly. Moreover, the events that led to my being at the Institute seemed to fall into place by chance, not by design, at least not by my design. I never particularly wanted to be a mathematician, nor did I plan on an academic career. But that is getting ahead of the story.
