Our primary goal in this preamble is to highlight the best of Vasil Popov’s
mathematical achievements and ideas. V. Popov showed his extraordinary talent
for mathematics in his early papers in the (typically Bulgarian) area of approximation
in the Hausdorff metric. His results in this area are very well presented
in the monograph of his advisor Bl. Sendov, “Hausdorff Approximation”.
