W illiam Arveson’s work has been extraordinarily influential, and it is known to everyone in functional analysis and in operator algebras. Bill’s career spanned UCLA, Harvard, and (since 1968) UC Berkeley, where he had twenty-nine PhD students and also mentored several postdocs. As we prepared this tribute we were struck by the sheer number of spontaneous notes or comments from mathematicians who felt personally inspired by his papers in the beginning of their careers.
