The course was CS 172, Formal Languages and Automata Theory. The text was the book by Hopcroft and Ullman. Rajeev Motwani later became one of the authors of the new edition of the text. As I was teaching CS 172 for the very first time in my life, and had never taken a formal course on the subject, I was very fortunate to have working with me a teaching assistant who was brilliant, very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and very patient with me. It was a joy to work with Rajeev Motwani during that semester at UC Berkeley. I certainly miss him, and will always remember him, his contributions to the course I was teaching, and his contribution to the world of Computer Science.

Rajeev was young and brilliant. Over years he seemed only to gain on both qualities. I had multiple references to Rajeev's work in my thesis and follow-up work. We stayed in touch, the news came as a shock! It is so sad to lose such a talent, such a great person so early.

He was a fantastic teacher. It was incredible the way he was able to answer questions and explain concepts in different ways until people understood. It was like he understood instantly what was confusing people and already knew the best way to respond. One of the best professors that I’ve ever had. He was a fantastic teacher.

But I never failed to visit the Computer Science Dept. web site at least once a month. When I did that, I always visited Prof. Motwani's page because of Randomized Algorithms. Though I could not understand his work, I always downloaded his latest papers. Today, a quick glance through the latest CACM brought the news of his untimely demise. I was sad, to say the least and I regretted that I never wrote to him to ask for his assistance to understand his work - CACM referred to him as a very helpful person: a motivator and a mentor. I hope his family would find solace in these thoughts and my fond memories of a man whom I never forgot to meet in cyberspace!
