Jan Zygmunt and Robert Purdy have a paper (“Adolf Lindenbaum: Notes on his Life, with Bibliography and Selected References“, open access) in the latest issue of Logica Universalis detailing what little is known about the life of Adolf Lindenbaum (1904-1941). It includes a complete bibliography of Lindenbaum’s own publications and public lectures, as well as a bibliography of articles in which results are credited to Lindenbaum. Another paper on Lindenbaum’s mathematical contributions is in the works.
The entire issue is dedicated to Lindenbaum. Jean-Yves Beziau gives this poignant quote in the introduction:
A mathematician, a modern mathematician in particular, is, as it would be said, in a superior degree of conscious activity: he is not only interested in the question of the what, but also in that of the how. He almost never restricts himself to a solution tout court of a problem. He always wants to have the most ??? solutions. Most what? The easiest, the shortest, the most general, etc.
