This Special Issue of Axioms is an attempt to capture the broad spectrum of scientific endeavors of Professor Dr. A.M. Mathai at the occasion of his anniversary.
A.M. Mathai was born on 28 April 1935 in Arakulam, near Palai, in the Idukki district of Kerala, India as the eldest son of Aley and Arakaparampil Mathai. After completing his high school education in 1953 from St. Thomas High School, Palai joined St. Thomas College, Palai with record marks and obtained his B.Sc. degree in Mathematics in 1957. In 1959, he completed his Master's Degree in Statistics from the University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India; he was first in class, and achieved the first rank and a gold medal. Then, he joined St. Thomas College, Palai, University of Kerala, as a Lecturer in Statistics and served there until 1961. He obtained a Canadian Commonwealth scholarship in 1961 and went to the University of Toronto, Canada to complete his M.A. degree in Mathematics in 1962. He was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, Canada in 1964. Then, he joined McGill University, Canada as an Assistant Professor until 1968. From 1968 to 1978, he was an Associate Professor there. He became a Full Professor of McGill in 1979 and served the Department of Mathematics and Statistics until 2000. He is also the founder of the Canadian Journal of Statistics and the Statistical Society of Canada. As of this date, A.M. Mathai is an Emeritus Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at McGill University, Canada, and Director of the Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, India. He has published over 300 research papers and more than 25 books on topics in mathematics, statistics, physics, astrophysics, chemistry, and biology. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, National Academy of Sciences of India, President of the Mathematical Society of India, and a Member of the International Statistical Institute.
He was instrumental in the implementation of the United Nations Basic Space Science Initiative (1991-2012).
