Introduction Olga Taussky Todd had a profound role in the development of matrix the- ory as a subject, not only through her specific results but also through her style. Our purpose here is to briefly review the scope of her interests in matrix theory specifically and then discuss further two of her favorite topics (Gersgorin and Lyapunov), which are excellent examples of her by: Remembering Olga Taussky Todd Written by Chandler Davis, University of Toronto.
