Mathematics Professor Publishes New Theory in Paper
A new mathematical theory titled, “Slant Antieigenvalue Theory” developed by Mort Seddighin, IU East professor of mathematics, and professor Karl Gustafson of the University of Colorado-Boulder, was presented in a lengthy paper accepted for publication in the Journal of Linear Algebra and Applications. LAA is one of the top referred international journals in mathematics published by Elsevier.
Mathematics professor invited to present at conference
Mort Seddighin, professor of mathematics, has been invited to present a talk during the 2009 Midwest Optimization Conference on Saturday, October 17, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.
The presentation is “Some Techniques of Matrix Optimization.” Seddighin is using a lemma, which he discovered, to analytically solve the “Distribution of Search Effort” problem. This problem, which is among famous research allocation problems in operations research, has applications in the military.
Alumni Board appoints new members
