Francois le Chevalier – Thanks a lot!

Dear friends,

Many thanks and warm gratitude to each of you for this superb day in Delft: with my wife Danièle, we have really been deeply moved, and admirative of the seamless organization, the quality and good humour of the presentations, the variety of persons, from the younger students – to which I owe a lot for so many good questions and lively discussions – to the … less young colleagues (but still younger than me – take care!), friends now!

Thanks to each of you, those who were there, and also to those who couldn’t come: these years shared between TU Delft and Thales are certainly my richest professional experience with human nature – and also the best part of my research! And those mornings in Delft, cycling along the canals – even when the weather was not …exactly Italian! – I will miss them, for sure…

Attached are several pictures selected by my wife – just a glimpse of so many exchanges and laughs! She especially appreciated the blue and yellow colours, Vermeer-style she tells me, of the ambiguity functions presented by Pascal. Also, the lifelines sketched by Nikita provide us with a … millenarist view of research achievements!

We will meet again, here or there – anyway, I need Delft from time to time, and there are conferences: Radar 2019 in Toulon, France! The splendid Delft-blue plate you offered me is on the wall, and my thoughts are with you: good health, open and creative thinking, human understanding and joined efforts – and perseverance!

Sincerely, I wish you the best
François

The main spectacle will be at the market square when the  lightning of Christmastree will occur, also at the market place. Delft expects 50.000 visitors so it will be crowded. If you want to have something to eat in town, make a reservation!
