Sad news:

With sadness we report the death on October 20 of Herbert Bruce Enderton, who had been battling leukemia for several months. He was Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at UCLA and a former member of the faculties of Mathematics and of Logic and the Methodology of Science at Berkeley. Widely known for his textbooks in the areas of logic, Enderton as a contributor to recursion theory, the theory of definability, models of nalysis, computational complexity, and history of logic.

The Enderton family requests that flowers not be sent. There will be no funeral, but a memorial service will be held at a future date.

Sad news, indeed. I learned from, and then taught from, Enderton's excellent A Mathematical Introduction to Logic. Wonderful book.
