James Earl Baumgartner, American mathematician, died he was 68.

James Earl Baumgartner  was an American mathematician who worked in set theory, mathematical logic and foundations, and topology died he was 68..[1]

(March 23, 1943 – December 28, 2011)


Baumgartner was born in Wichita, Kansas, began his undergraduate study at the California Institute of Technology in 1960, then transferred to the University of California, Berkeley, from which he received his PhD in 1970 from for a dissertation entitled Results and Independence Proofs in Combinatorial Set Theory. His advisor was Robert Vaught.[2] He became a professor at Dartmouth College in 1969, and there spent his entire career.
One of Baumgartner's results is the consistency of the statement that any two \aleph_1-dense sets of reals are order isomorphic (a set of reals is \aleph_1-dense if it has exactly \aleph_1 points in every open interval). With András Hajnal he proved the result (Baumgartner–Hajnal theorem) that the partition relation \omega_1\to(\alpha)^2_n holds for \alpha<\omega_1,n<\omega. He died of a heart attack in 2011.[3]
