    I was going to add a stub page on Roland Schwänzl, to avoid grey links, and linking to the Wikipedia page, but looking at that I am very confused (and my German is too rusty!) That page seems to be about two people or did Roland Schwänzl actually do things on UNIX etc as well as working with Vogt? My search did not even give me the genealogy page for him, (although I now have found it).. Can anyone help?

    Here is part of his obituary by his one listed student Judith Plümer (Dissertation: Resultants: A Tool for Chow Varieties. It says (in Google translation):

    Prof. Schwänzls research area was initially the algebraic Topology. After a Guest stay in Columbus, Ohio, initiated and organized he 1989 Unix-based computer network for the teaching unit Mathematics. Based on this efficient infrastructure he was a large part of Third-party funds in the teaching unit Mathematics solicit. he engaged is on the board of numerous international bodies, Committees and expert groups. He coined the scientific Information and Communication Structure by theoretical Approaches that he in his Projects also prototypically realized and on meetings, training and congresses passed. At the University of Osnabrück he founded the Working Group “Scientific Information” and the international master’s degree program “Information Engineering”.

    The obituary appeared in the Onsabrueck school newspaper.
