**Roland Puystjens**

**Over Roland Puystjens**He belonged to the academic staff of Pure Mathematics in the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Ghent and was an invited professor at the Universities of Coimbra, Lisbon, Braga, and Brigham Young.

He visited many Universities and attended many International Conferences. In the late sixties, he received a letter from Sir R. Penrose, which contained results on “ A generalized inverse for matrices over the complex numbers “ and started generalizing these results for matrices over general rings and, more generally, for morphisms in general categories.

From then on, he published many international papers about generalized invertibility, the system of von Neumann – Penrose equations and the system of Drazin equations, mainly in The Journal of Linear Algebra and its Applications but also in Linear and Multilinear Algebra, Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra, and Communications in Algebra.

He was and is still strongly interested in the search of a “Unifying Approximation Philosophy “, hidden in Eastern- and Western Philosophies and mirrored by his algebraic categorical results about von Neumann – Penrose regularity that can be found in the following…
