Daniel Solow

I was born in Washington, D.C. at a very young age. I soon learned that Danny was my name and mathematics was my game. I received a B.S. in Mathematics from Carnegie-Mellon University; an M.S. in Operations Research from the University of California at Berkeley; and a Ph.D. in Operations Research from Stanford University. I have been a professor at Case Western Reserve University since 1978. I have done basic research in deterministic optimization by developing and improving algorithms for solving linear and nonlinear programming problems as well as in combinatorial optimization. I also use these tools, together with mathematical modeling, analysis and computer simulations, to derive insights that are applicable to broad classes of complex systems (such as how much central control is beneficial for system performance) and to study the role of leadership and its impact on the performance of systems of human interaction. I have also developed systematic methods for teaching mathematical proofs and reasoning, computer programming, and operations research. Most recently, I have proposed a novel approach for making legacy donations to charitable organizations.
