András Hajnal's CV

We give below András Hajnal's CV as it was on 3 March 2016 on his personal website at the Rényi Institute. The CV, however, looks as though it had not been updated during the last ten years of his life. Following his death later that year, his website was taken down, so we thought it worthwhile to preserve his CV here.
