Avner Magen

Avner Magen had died in an accident, see here for more details. He was a nice guy with some very nice results.

My favorite result of Avner, is his paper on dimension reduction and preservation of volumes and angles (see here). It is a simple but clever result that me and other people had missed (despite thinking about this problem). For more discussion of this result, see here.

Avner was 42. May he rest in peace.
