An Uneasy Alliance: The Mathematics Research Center At the by Jagdish Chandra, Stephen M. Robinson

By Jagdish Chandra, Stephen M. Robinson

Within the put up global struggle II period, the math study middle (MRC) was once one of many earliest complete examples of collaboration among the govt. and a college. by way of taking a vast view of arithmetic that embraced either the natural and utilized branches, the MRC supplied a version of an interdisciplinary attempt that interacted rather well with the spectrum of sciences. This booklet offers with the advanced and not easy organizational and medical concerns that arose within the operation of this heart.

M. Robinson after he joined the research staff in 1970, to broaden the work to include solution of problems related to economic models. These problems tended to use tools from nonlinear optimization, but they required application of those tools in ways somewhat different from those familiar to investigators in nonlinear programming. They also led to connections with research staff from varied backgrounds and somewhat different interests than those of most operations research workers. Visitors of this type, some coming from economics departments or economic research institutes, included Jean-Pierre Aubin, Richard H.

Kimeldorf of the problem of noisy duels. This was an example of a kind of problem that was interesting to both . 24 An Uneasy Alliance mathematicians and military tacticians. It was described as follows in MRC's annual report for fiscal year 1968: Roughly speaking, the problem is as follows. Two opponents start with a pistol apiece and a number of rounds of ammunition (not necessarily the same for the two opponents). The[y] approach each other, firing at will. Each has a probability p(x) of hitting the other if he fires at a distance x (not necessarily the same probability for each opponent).

In order to have this policy accepted by the staff, it will not suffice merely to announce it loudly and frequently. It must indeed be a fact that helping the Army with its problems is a worthy activity. If first class mathematicians find themselves challenged by the Army problems, which they encounter, no propaganda will be needed to convince these mathematicians of the worth of those problems. They will have the evidence with which to refute those who claim it is demeaning to concern oneself with the Army's problems.
