Ka-Sing Lau (December 16, 1948 - October 12, 2021) was a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh (1986 -1999), Professor of Mathematics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (1996 - 2017) where he was chair from 1996 to 2012, Professor Emeritus at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2017 - 2021), and Adjunct Professor at the University of Pittsburgh (2017 - 2021). Ka-Sing worked in Functional Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Fractal Geometry, Wavelet Theory, and Applied Probability. These areas go from the very classical to the more avant-garde topics in Analysis. Ka-Sing’s view of the field was both deep and broad. He was the leader at our Analysis seminar, and he had a tremendous influence in the development of Analysis both in Pittsburgh and in Hong Kong. Ka-Sing advised at least 24 Ph.D. students, and many Masters students and Post-Docs and published 154 research articles. His last paper appeared on October 8, 2021. Ka-Sing is remembered by everyone who knew and loved him for his friendship, kindness, joy of life, gentleness, enthusiasm, curiosity, optimism, courage, wisdom and profound intelligence.
