Theodore Hill

Biography

Theodore P. Hill is professor emeritus of mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology, University of New Mexico adjunct professor of ECE and Cal Poly research scholar in residence with primary research interests in probability theory and fair division. Since receiving his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1977, he has also held various visiting faculty appointments in Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Göttingen, Hawaii, Leiden, Mexico and Tel Aviv, and has won research awards from the Fulbright Commission, the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Dutch National Science Foundation and the joint U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation. His main research interests are mathematical probability, especially Benford’s Law; fair-division problems; and optimal stopping. He is sponsoring two math-related book projects: a collection of Early American mathematics books for the Bancroft Library at Berkeley and a collection of general scientific books for the library of Vietnam’s new English-language International University in Ho Chi Minh City. One of his hobbies is collecting pre-Civil War American mathematics books, which are on display in the Rare Books Archives at the Georgia Tech library. Address: School of Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332. Internet: hill at math dot gatech dot edu, http://www.math.gatech.edu/~hill
