of the University of Georgia. Professor Granville was a Ph.D. student of Paulo Ribenboim from 1984-1987. Since his graduation from Queen's University he has published over 70 papers on a large variety of number theoretic subjects in such diverse areas as: diophantine equations, combinatorial number theory, analytic number theory, algebraic number theory, and computational number theory. His articles are without exception characterized by an imaginative approach and an obvious love of the subject matter. Furthermore, they are deep and fundamental contributions to number theory. Perhaps, he is best known for his work with Alford and Pomerance in showing that there exists an infinitude of Carmichael numbers. This problem had resisted resolution for over seventy years.
