ICS Professor Wes Peterson Passed Away

Long time ICS Professor and friend of the math department Wes Peterson passed away on May 6th. According to Prof JB Nation: "Wes was a gentleman and a scholar and his passing is a loss to the UH community. He wrote the first textbook on coding theory, and his decoding method for Reed-Solomon codes is one of the classics in the field. He thought like a mathematician, and impressed me repeatedly with his contributions to our collaboration on group codes".
