Vale Marialuisa de Resmini
I just heard the news (via Franco Mazzocca) that finite geometer Marialuisa de Resmini passed away last Friday. I only met her a few times, but she struck me as a strong and resolute lady who cared for the development of young mathematicians. I think it was in Irsee 2006, she was the chair of the session I was speaking in, and she said to me “I liked your talk because you weren’t screaming at us”. Marialuisa’s research results were mainly in the theory of projective planes and block designs, and according to Mathscinet, collaborated most with Dieter Jungnickel, Jennifer Key, and Antonello Cossidente; thus showing her breadth.
