This citation serves a symbolic tribute to Professor Rakowski on the 50th anniversary of his scientific career.
Andrzej Rakowski was born in Warsaw, Poland, on 16 June 1931. In 1957, he received a Master of Science degree in electronic communication from the Warsaw University of Technology and a Master of Arts degree in music theory from then the State School of Music in Warsaw, now called The Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music, in 1958.
