Hi

Sorry, I forgot to answer your second question.

My Father worked very hard on the paper and he submitted it to a Hungarian organisation and also to a US organisation. Sadly, the Hungarians rejected his theory but the Americans have so far acknowledged receipt of his theory.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for your reply and well wishes. My dad had basic computer skills and so he was not aware of saving his user names and passwords. It is fortunate that he had actully written down all his usernames and passwords on a piece of paper and had told a friend about it. Once we located the UN and Passwords, we managed to get on the forum and his email accounts and inform all his friends

Thanks Again

Warren

He taught us to always let some space to our certainties, to see a "bit" beyond reality. To believe in us as men, not as gods, not as mathematicians.

It is now our mission (and surely my will) to make his name and his ideas to survive him with us.

My one regret was a letter from him that I never had time to answer, a letter dealing with humanity, family, music, love and faaith: I thought I had time to write it with calm and care; now I learnt that I must not postpone a talking to a friend. This has been his last lesson to me.

I miss you Malcolm, from the deep of my heart. I hope you will forgive my laziness.

Thank you for your reply. I am in the process of organising a rememberance card which will be in the form of a bookmark and will have some words about him and also a picture of him.

I will be posting a new post when I have got the remeberance cards ready and will leave my email address for anyone to email me their address, so I can post them a bookmark.

I will also post general Thank You post to all his well wishers very shortly

I have many Gurus in my life, but my Dad was my first and so he will always be my 'Maha-Guru'

Thank You once again

Warren

I'm sad to hear this bad news.

My condolences, Warren & Bruce.

We discussed together and with many other people about God and Life after Death. As atheist, I was against his religious points of view.
Now, he lives in our memory.

Please post his photograph on this thread.
And let us have news about his theory.

I'm 20 years after him. Lost my father when 15.

Buddhists say "impermanency".

Regards,

Tony

I was trying to use our local library to unsuccessfully post a paint to the forum, when I noticed the untimely death of M.F.Goode.
Although my involvement with him on the forum is relatively recent, his sincerety in wishing to help others along was totally evident.His insight to many problems was crystal clear and invaluable.

So far as the conjecture he was attempting to have published, I had myself worked on that some time before entering this forum, and before I even knew what an email number was, and I had come to a conclusion there was a schism between the math publishers and the given conjecture. Further,evidently he sent his manuscript to a math association publisher: however , except in special cases, their publication schedule is more than a year ahead, and unless a person has been notified of inclusion, the submission in itself does not quarantee publication.It might be wise to check on its status before drawing any further conclusions.
I am sure I would be interested in his approach to the conjecture, of which I have a problem of spelling correctly , but knowing a pronunciation
of B-eel- s.

As Mini-Geek pointed out, his sons were thoughtful enough to have
informed us promptly of the sad news.
Mally frequently regaled us with tales of his exploits at 35,000 ft.
I certainly enjoyed Simon Singh's book, as well as some lower-maths-level
sparring with Mally on this forum, to which he was a notable contributor.
