As I've mentioned on these mailing lists before, the Axiom 
community lost another major contributor. Like Dick Jenks,
Manuel Bronstein was one of the key developers of the original
Axiom system. He was also active with me behind the scenes,
has contributed his thesis work for documentatin purposes,
and has done large pieces of software (SUMit and  as a
supervisor for Niklaus Mannhart, PIit, plus an integrator
for Maple).

There have been several emails crossing my desk about Manuel
but this one I want to share with you mostly out of concern
for his family. Manuel leaves behind a wife and 6 children.

Hello, everyone,

Manuel's brother Yonah relays some unfortunate news.  Manuel did not
have life insurance, and his family needs financial help.  See below.

I replied asking him to provide bank account information for people
outside the US who might want to make transfers.  When I get that
information, I'll send out a broader announcement.  I also asked if he
needs help finding people to sort through Manuel's scientific papers.


FYI: the organization Yonah refers to is an orthodox Lubavitcher
synagogue, Chabad of Greater South Bay,  .

Dear Mr. Volcheck,

This is Yonah Alexandre Bronstein, Manuel's brother, helping Tamara with her
emails. I came in to help bury Manu and help Tamara deal with the aftermath of
his death.

If you can forgive me for being practical, Manuel unfortunately passed away
without life insurance (he was in between 2 contracts), and so now Tamara and
her 6 kids face some financial difficulties as well.

I have therefore organized a support fund for Manuel's family, based in
California (where I live and will be able to help manage it). Those who want to
help can send checks:
.to the order of: CHABAD

I'd be most grateful if you could diffuse that information as you feel is
appropriate, through the ACM and other professional organizations who knew

Thank you very much,

Yonah Alexandre Bronstein, Ph.D.
