Hadwiger

1977 VX. Discovered 1977 Nov. 3 by P. Wild at Zimmerwald.

Named in memory of Hugo Hadwiger (1908-1981), for more than 40 years professor of mathematics at the University of Berne, very popular for the human and historical touch of his lectures, and admired by students and colleagues alike for his refined art of presentation. Known as a "master of beautiful formulae", his course on special functions deservedly drew crowds of students of all ages. (M 8151)
