Obituary: Blagovest Sendov, 8 February 1932 – 19 January 2020
I first met Blagovest Sendov in 1963 as a student in mathematics at the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics atВ Sofia University. His first lecture was devoted to Mathematical modeling. On some real life situations Prof. Sendov revealed to us the philosophy of science. Prof. Sendov's ``philosophy'' included a deep understanding of the mechanisms of the underlying real processes, the mathematical description of these processes using contemporary mathematical theories and the solution of the formulated mathematical problems using advanced numerical and computational tools. Prof. Sendov possessed an enormous ability to formulate difficult tasks and problems that need years of efforts to be resolved. At the weekly seminar of ``Mathematical modeling''
he used to pose such difficult problems and to make us young collaborators enthusiastic about working on them. He never pressed anybody of us to work on something particular, but he waited that everybody chooses a theme of interest by himself.
