It doesn’t take a psychoanalyst to ﬁgure out why we failed: we wanted to postpone this last goodbye to Paul Halmos. But the time has now come. Goodbye, Paul; thanks very much for so much. edu Operator Theory: Advances and Applications, Vol. R. Halmos ∗ G. Piranian Halmos delivers a vigorous piece of his mind on the craft of writing. His principal message concerns the spiral plan, whose wide adoption would certainly raise the standards of mathematical prose in our books and journals. Lest readers deceive themselves and believe that they need not go to the original paper, I abstain from describing the plan.

Students”) wrote, in his introduction to Paul’s selected works, “Halmos embodies the ideal mixture of researcher and teacher. In him, each role is indistinguishable from the other. ” This is a mathematical autobiography, and contains much advice that is very useful to all mathematicians and to all those who aspire to be mathematicians. ” Obituary: Paul Halmos, 1916–2006 29 Paul’s self-evaluation may be quite accurate, but it is important to understand how high a standard he was setting for himself.
