Stephen J. Wright, George B. Dantzig Professor of Computer Sciences, works on theory and applications of mathematical optimization, a field that concerns itself with techniques for finding the best element (as measured by a mathematical function) from a large or infinite set of possible alternatives. Wright has served as chair of the Mathematical Optimization Society and three terms as a trustee of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. – See full article by Chris Barncard
