American tourist, Monica, has had fun in Iran, ISNA reported:
Her blog has some interesting posts about Iran:
Neil Epstein and Jay Shapiro continue their study on the content function and the five types of algebras with respect to this function, i.e. content algebra, weak content algebra, semicontent algebra, Gaussian algebra and finally Ohm-Rush algebra. Refer to http://arxiv.org/abs/1405.3000
My PhD Thesis that I wrote under the supervision of Prof. Winfried Bruns was on content algebras (cf. http://www.nasehpour.com/peyman/id129.html) and one of the concepts that I introduced in my thesis was Gaussian algebra. I re-introduced the concept of Gaussian algebra in my recent paper that was about Badawi-Anderson conjecture: http://arxiv.org/abs/1401.0459

Danish mathematician and professor of commutative algebra in University of Copenhagen, Professor Hans-Bjørn Foxby, passed away on 09 April 2014. According to the Mathematics Genealogy Project, he was a student of Christian Ulrik Jensen and he supervised PhD thesis of some mathematicians such as Dmitri Apassov, Lars Winther Christensen, Anders Juel Frankild, Esben Bistrup Halvorsen, Henrik Holm, Peter Jørgensen and Siamak Yassemi.
Professor Siamak Yassemi was supervisor of my MSc thesis in 1999 and he invited me to be a local organizer for the workshop on “homological methods in commutative algebra” at IPM in 2002. In this workshop a couple of important pioneers of commutative algebra attended and one of them was the late Professor Hans-Bjørn Foxby who was actually one of the main organizers of this workshop.
I convey my sincerest condolences to his family, friends and commutative algebra community.
