An Obituary

Suddenly came to know about the demise of Klaus Roth – a renowned number theorist of our time – through the blogs of Prof Terry Tao. Although Number Theory is one of my life-long interest, I know very little about the Analytic approach. Meanwhile, exactly one year ago i.e. on November 13th 2014, one of my (and strongest of all) influences, Alexander Grothendieck, had passed away.
