Mathematical Sciences at 40

Vol. 47, No. 1, 2003

Order No. G322-0234
For the last 40 years the Mathematical Sciences Department in IBM Research has played an important role in a wide range of scientific and business activities, from the design of products to methods for planning and operating business units. This issue reflects that broad range through papers on halftone printing, predictive modeling, greedy algorithms, linear algebra, open-source software for operations research, one-dimensional dynamics, and chip design. An additional paper presents a view of Mathematical Sciences in the 1990's.
