Title: The legacy of Dominic Welsh

Abstract: Dominic Welsh wrote the first comprehensive text on matroids. He supervised 28 doctoral theses and wrote over 100 papers and five books. As impressive as these numbers are, they fail to truly capture the spirit of the man who inspired generations of students and imbued them with not only a love of mathematical beauty but with a deep and abiding affection for the man himself. Dominic died in November, 2023. The speaker will attempt to capture some of the key aspects of his legacy.
