Per Lindström

Per "Pelle" Lindström (9 April 1936 – 21 August 2009, Gothenburg)[1] was a Swedish logician, after whom Lindström's theorem and the Lindström quantifier are named.[2] (He also independently discovered Ehrenfeucht–Fraïssé games.[1]) He was one of the key followers of Lars Svenonius.[3]

Lindström was awarded a PhD from the University of Gothenburg in 1966.[4] His thesis was titled Some Results in the Theory of Models of First Order Languages. A festschrift for Lindström was published in 1986.[5]
