Das plötzliche Ableben unseres lieben Kollegen und Freundes Norbert Peters ist unfassbar. Wir können es nur hinnehmen. Er war einer der ganz Großen, in jeder Hinsicht.

Durch ihn hat unser Institut entscheidende Impulse und Rückendeckung zur Profil- und Kompetenzbildung im Bereich der Verbrennungsregelung erfahren, die im gemeinsamen Etablieren des DFG-Sonderforschungsbereichs 686 unter seiner Federführung, einschließlich des von ihm vorgedachten Rollenwechsels zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt, gipfelten.

Ich bin bestürzt und dankbar für die Zeit mit ihm.

Meine Gedanken sind auch bei seiner Familie,
in Freundschaft

It is so sad to learn Prof. Peters passing. The combustion community lost a great scientist.

I had the opportunity to attend his lecture at Princeton Combustion Summer School in 2010. The knowledge he transferred in the lecture has greatly impacted my research later on. He was a great teacher.

My condolences to Prof. Peters family.

Die Nachricht von Norberts Tod hat mich zutiefst betroffen gemacht.

Meine Diplomarbeit habe ich bei Ihm geschrieben und wie selbstverständlich, bot er mir anschließend eine Promotionsstelle an. Die Unterstützung, sein Vertrauen, seine menschliche Wärme und das freundschaftliche Verhältnis in den letzten 27 Jahren sind ein wichtiger Teil in meinem Leben. Dafür bin ich Ihm sehr dankbar.

Mein tiefes Mitgefühl gilt seiner Familie.

It was with great sadness that I learned Norbert's passing. He was full of energy and enthusiasm, and it is a complete shock that he had left us so early and so suddenly. We lost a giant and an inspiration. I was fortunate to have visited him many times in Aachen, discussing turbulence and combustion as well as science in general. His love of science, his great insights, and his openness have had a profound impact on my career. It is truly a privilege to have had such a wonderful mentor, colleague, and friend. My heart go out to Cordula and the children.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Norbert's sudden passing. He was always so full of life.

Norbert leaves behind a huge scientific legacy, which will remain influential for many decades to come. While he and I developed and advocated different approaches, in the personal interactions we had, Norbert was always friendly, generous and constructive.

I extend my condolences to Norbert's family.

Der überraschen Tod von meinem Freund Norbert hat mich sehr erschüttert. Seit nahezu 40 Jahren arbeiteten wir auf dem gleichen Gebiet und vor allem die frühen Jahre waren durch eine intensive Kooperation gekennzeichnet. Als Forscher und Mensch habe ich ihn sehr geschätzt. Mit ausgezeichneten Fähigkeiten im Detail, klarem Blick und einem unvergleichlichen Enthusiasmus hat er seine Visionen vorangetrieben. Ich bin überzeugt, dass seine zentralen Ideen, die eine Entkopplung von komplexer Kinetik und Turbulenz möglich gemacht haben, auf Dauer Wissenschaftsgeschichte schreiben werde.

Ich werde ihn sehr vermissen. Mein Mitgefühl gilt seiner Frau und seinen Kindern.

Norbert was one most important people in my life.

I still cannot believe I need to use the past tense in sentence. I have remembered his thoughtful advice as my Doktorvater, his considerate personality, and his passionate interests for a broad range of topics. These memories will stay in my heart forever and will guide my life forever. All of my condolences to his family.

Auch nach einiger Zeit finde ich nicht die richtigen Worte. Gibt es diese für so ein unerwartetes Ereignis eigentlich? Ich denke nicht...

Ich habe Sie leider nur drei Jahre kennenlernen dürfen, lieber Herr Peters. In diesen drei Jahren habe ich, aber einen überaus netten, fairen und stets fröhlichen Menschen kennengelernt. Sie sind in der Arbeit aufgegangen und hatten stets ein offenes Ohr für uns alle. Die lieben Worte, die Sie nach meiner abgeschlossenen Berufsausbildung gefunden haben, werde ich immer in sehr guter Erinnerung behalten und beudeuten mir viel!

Mein Beileid gilt Ihrer Familie. Es ist nicht nur ein großartiger Wissenschaftler von uns gegangen, sondern auch ein Ehemann, Vater, Freund und Kollege.

We met almost forty years ago. We discovered our mutual interest in turbulent combustion and that we were born two days apart.

At Sandia we all enjoyed Norbert's many visits to the CRF. He was always willing to talk about turbulence and if it was combined with a walk that was even better.

On one arrival we went for a walk in the local hills and Norbert laughed recalling that Cordula had said he would soon be with the cows of Livermore -- and there they were twenty feet away.

Norbert's unbounded enthusiasm for science and life will be missed by all who knew him.

Ich bin noch Student und durfte somit in einer der letzten Generationen seinen Vorlesungen über Technische Verbrennung lauschen. Schon damals haben mich seine Gewissenhaftigkeit und sein Enthusiasmus beeindruckt. Durch seine gütige Vermittlung habe ich zudem meine Bachelorarbeit in den USA schreiben dürfen, was ich ihm niemals vergessen werde. Obgleich ich noch am Anfang stehe und die Größe seines Werkes wohl erst in einigen Jahren werde greifen können, möchte ich an dieser Stelle meinen tiefen Respekt zum Ausdruck bringen. Mein Mitgefühl gilt seiner Familie.

I would like to express my deep sadness and my most sincere condolences for the passing of Norbert Peters. He was a member of my PhD committee at UCSD and I had the privilege of having numerous discussions with him about turbulent combustion. He represented an unparalleled source of inspiration in our community and had an uncanny scientific talent, which in addition was combined with the most pleasant personal interactions. We should all look ahead to be inspired by the legacy that Norbert left, scientifically and in his teaching and mentoring of his former students.

I am deeply shocked and stay sad about Norbert’s passing. As for many others, Norbert was my long-time mentor and friend. His advices strongly influenced my academic life, my career and important decisions. It seems like yesterday when I met him for the last time during a train trip to Cologne in March. As always he was full of energy and an excellent listener.

My thoughts are with Cordula and his children.

I am so sad to hear of Norbert's passing. It is unbelievable and I cannot find words to phrase my feelings. I had the chance to work with the wunderful person he was: a great scientist, a good leader and a caring man. He taught me a lot and had in some way an impact on my life. He was more than my Ph. D supervisor, he was my "Doktorvater",
this word has a special meaning to me. I will also remember his cheerfulness. He leaves a big vacuum.
I send my heartfelt condolences to his family and wish them all strength for the time to come.

Is hard for all of us to think that we will not meet Professor Peters anymore in the corridor with his usual kind smile or deeply concentrated expression. I didn't have many opportunities to really speak with him, but today I ran into one of the papers that he printed for me last summer. One year has gone at it seems yesterday: I was completely lost and he showed me the way.
We will miss him, not just because of his infinite knowledge and experience but also for his kindness, humility and contagious passion for his work which inspired many young students and engineers. Looking at him one would have never thought that he was already a giant in his field but a young scientist still full of enthusiasm for his work.
A special thought goes to his children and family.

Sad to hear of the passing of Norbert Peters, an outstanding figure in combustion science and engineering. Although my personal contact with him was brief, he instantly impressed me with his gentle manner and an air of friendliness and openness. But most impressive were his decades-long efforts in turbulent combustion, a field where he was a leading theorist. His life has come to an untimely end, but his contributions will live on and inspire future research.
My deepest condolences to the family, friends, and associates of Norbert Peters.

Ich erinnere mich immer wieder gerne an unsere kleine Aussenstelle im Templergraben, in der wir ungestört unseren Forscherdrang auslebten. Soviel Freiheit und schöpferische Energie, die mir Norbert geboten hat, habe ich nie wieder erleben dürfen. Für diesen Abschnitt meines Lebens, den Norbert mit geprägt hat, bin ich ihm sehr dankbar. Ich werde es immer in Erinnerung behalten.

Liebe Cordula, Dir und euren Kindern gilt mein herzlichstes Beileid.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Norbert Peters earlier this year when he visited KAUST. His lecture was amazing and talking to him directly was extremely nice. I learnt a lot from him in a short conversation. He had such an easy personality. He has left a big void by his sudden departure.
My heartfelt condolences to his family!

The news came as a shock. It is sad to learn that our dear friend Norbert Peters has gone away. I knew him for more than thirty five years. I first met Norbert at an AGARD conference and I still remember the questions he was raising about CFD modeling with k-epsilon closure and the realizability issue. We had many scientific encounters at IWOMICs (International Workshop on Mathematics in Combustion) and it was a wounderful period and at all the Combustion symposia around the world.

In recent years Norbert was coming to IFPEN as an expert and brought much of his knowledge to help develop combustion for IC engines at that Insitute. It was a pleasure to see him on these occasions. We'll miss him so much.
Please convey my sympathy to his family and to his collaborators at your university and his many former students.
For sure I will keep Norbert in my memory.

Was für eine schreckliche Nachricht! Ich denke, alle, die die großartige Gelegenheit hatten bei ihm und mit ihm zu arbeiten, haben Norbert so viel zu verdanken.
Sein Lachen konnte Räume füllen, sein Vertrauen in meine Person war mir immer Ansporn. Für mich war er im wahren Sinne mein Doktorvater! Vorbild und Leitfigur.

Meine Gedanken sind bei seiner Familie, deren Schmerz viel größer sein muss.

Auch mit einigen Tagen Abstand fällt es mir schwer zu begreifen, dass Norbert Peters von uns gegangen ist. Ich werde mich immer gerne an unsere vielen Gespräche errinnern und bin zutiefst dankbar für die stete Unterstützung. Dankbar bin ich auch für die zweieinhalb Jahre unserer Zusammenarbeit, in der ich sehr viel gelernt habe und die mir jetzt sehr kurz erscheinen. Diese Zeit hat mich persönlich sehr geprägt und einen tiefen Eindruck hinterlassen, den ich nur schwer in Worte fassen kann; die vielen schönen Erinnerungen werden mich den Rest meines Lebens begleiten.

Mein tiefstes Mitgefühl gilt seiner Familie.

I have scheduled the trip to Aachen to visit you next month and you mentioned 'we should have plenty of time together ...'. But now these words must be kept in memory...
Dear Norbert, we will miss you!

I cannot find words to describe my feelings after finding about your loss Norbert. You have been a giant of combustion science, a pillar of our field, and you have sparked unprecedented motivation to your peers and to the younger generation alike. You taught us to think outside the box, to think big, and to innovate. I never imagined that you will be lost so early and this hard to comprehend. You leave behind a great vacuum that it will be very difficult to fill. I want to thank you for your stellar contributions and for being an outstanding human being and a true gentleman. We all mourning about that great loss and we will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers. This is the least we can do.

The sudden call of our creator for Norbert is a horrible loss. First of all for his family and my thoughts go to his young children and his wife who have to cope with this passing away the most. For all of us others from the scientific community, is is a loss of a great mentor and friend who never stopped to pursue the ideals of science. Both family and science made him obviously younger in mind than his phyiscal age actually was. The way of continuing his favorite research in his "Unruhestand" should be an ideal for all of us. It is so sad that his physis did not allow him to continue this work. By what he did, he laid the basis for a large group of researchers in academia and industry to follow-up on the theory of turbulence and combustion and to make our world better. Nontheless, I think it will take long until the vacant spot will be filled that he has left.
