4.1.1 The Gelbart Institute The Gelbart Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences was founded in 1987
 

Summary: 4.1.1 The Gelbart Institute
The Gelbart Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences was founded in 1987
by Prof. Bernard Pinchuk to institutionalize a long standing informal program of
bringing visitors in analysis to Bar-Ilan University. Its name recognizes the many
successful efforts of Prof. Abraham Gelbart to obtain extramural funding for
mathematical research at Bar-Ilan.
From the very beginning, the main purpose of the Gelbart Institute has been to
support the visits of foreign mathematicians to Bar-Ilan and to provide financial
backing for mathematical conferences organized by Bar-Ilan faculty; this remains its
current emphasis. Typically, visits (ranging from a week to a month or more) of a
dozen or so mathematicians from abroad are supported annually. In 2009, the Gelbart
Institute is one of the principal sponsors of the conference "Complex Analysis &
Dynamical Systems IV", held in Nahariya, May 18-22. Roughly 120 mathematicians
from all over the world participated.
In recent years, the perceived mandate of the Gelbart Institute has broadened
somewhat to include:
a) library support, including purchase of research monographs and the cataloging
and indexing of the Schiffer Collection (the 3000 volume personal scientific
library of the distinguished mathematician Menahem Max Schiffer, acquired
for the Bar-Ilan Department of Mathematics through the personal efforts of
