Professor of Mathematics Robert Bosch Shares Highlights From New Book
November 22, 2019
Professor of Mathematics Robert Bosch '85 gave this year's President's Lecture titled Opt Art: From Mathematical Optimization to Visual Design during Parents and Family Weekend.
In his new book, Opt Art, Bosch offers a lively and accessible introduction to the geometric, algebraic, and algorithmic foundations of mathematical optimization and its classical applications, such as determining the best way to assign workers to jobs or devising the best route for a delivery driver.
Inspired by Oberlin's long history of noontime assemblies, the President's Lecture was created to give the Oberlin community an opportunity to hear outstanding faculty members and selected alumni share their expertise and insights.
