Charles Boudewijn Huijsmans 1946–1997 Positivity 4: 203–204, 2000. © 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. Charles Boudewijn Huijsmans 1946–1997 C.B. "Pay" Huijsmans was born in Voorburg (The Netherlands) on May 7, 1946. After finishing the Gymnasium in 1964, Pay entered the University of Leiden ma- joring in mathematics. In 1970, he started to work on his Ph.D. thesis as a student of Prof. A.C. Zaanen. At that time the Functional Analysis group in Leiden was a center of great activity, particularly in the areas of Banach function spaces, integral operators and the theory of Riesz spaces (vector lattices). In 1973, at the age of 27, Pay successfully completed his thesis "Prime ideals in commutative rings and in Riesz spaces". The thesis was devoted to a systematic study of the analogies between ideal theory in Riesz spaces and ideal theory in commutative rings. In particular he investigated the properties of the so-called hull- kernel topology on the space of prime ideals. In his thesis one can already detect the direction that would dominate his re- search activities as the interplay between certain areas of functional analysis and the theory of lattice ordered algebraic structures.
