The name of Vilim Feller can be seen on the left, better known as William Feller, who was born in Zagreb in 1906.
He is the most outstanding Croatian mathematician, considered as one of the founders of Probability Theory as a scientific discipline.
He is also a founder of Mathematical Reviews and a recipient of the National Medal of Science (Presidential Award) from the president of the USA.

The Cemetery of the City of Zagreb, called Mirogoj, is considered as one of the most beautiful cemeterires in Europe.

Dr. Goran Igaly: additional photos from the 6th Croatian Mathematical Congress

By the end of the 6th Croatian Mathematical Congress we learned the sad news that Academician Sibe Mardešić,
distinguished Croatian mathematician, passed away at the age of 89.

We owe our gratitude to Croatian Mathematical Society for its efforts
to organize the 6th Croatian Mathematical Congress.
