Their joint book from 20004 summarizes the theory and is the standard reference for the study of transformations on Wiener space.
Zakai’s work was recognized by many awards, including the Control Systems Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Israel’s Rothschild Prize. He was a fellow of the IEEE and Institute of Mathematical Statistics, foreign associate of the US National Academy of Engineering, and member of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
He was a strong proponent of employing sophisticated mathematical tools in engineering, and showed by example that the interaction between mathematics and engineering is highly beneficial to both disciplines. His voice and mentorship will be sorely missed by his many colleagues, students, and friends.
He is survived by his wife Shulamit (Mita); their children Tamar, Michal, and Noam; and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
