Partha Niyogi has passed away

Partha Niyogi passed away after battling brain cancer (via Suresh).

Readers of this blog might be familiar with some of the work he did on Laplacian Eigenmaps and other topics in machine learning, especially manifold learning. I read the Laplacian eigenmaps paper my first year in grad school, as a holdover from my undergrad research in machine learning.
