Summary In this edited collection we commemorate the 60th birthday of Prof. Christopher Byrnes and the retirement of Prof. Anders Lindquist from the Chair of Optimization and Systems Theory at KTH. These papers were presented in part at a 2009 workshop in KTH, Stockholm, honoring the lifetime contributions of Professors Byrnes and Lindquist in various fields of applied mathematics. Anders and Chris published their first joint paper in 1982 and have most recently published two joint articles in 2009. Anders and Chris, together with coworkers, have worked on the partial realization theory and developed a comprehensive geometric theory of the moment problem for rational measures. A major initial step was the final proof of a conjecture by Tryphon Georgiou on the rational covariance extension problem, formulated in the 1970s by Kalman, and left open for 20 years. This is now the basis of a progressive area of research, which has provided entirely new paradigms based on analytic interpolation and mathematical tools for solving key problems in robust control, spectral estimation, systems identification, and many other engineering problems
