About the Authors

Professor Jay Yellen

Jay Yellen is Professor of Mathematics at Rollins College. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Mathematics at Polytechnic University of New York and did his doctoral work in finite group theory at Colorado State University. Dr. Yellen has had regular faculty appointments at Allegheny College, State University of New York at Fredonia, and Florida Institute of Technology, where he was Chair of Operations Research from 1995 to 1999. He has had visiting appointments at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Columbia University.

He has written manuscripts used at IBM for two courses in discrete mathematics within the Principles of Computer Science Series and has contributed two sections to the Handbook of Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics. He also has designed and conducted several summer workshops on creative problem solving for secondary-school mathematics teachers, which were funded by the National Science Foundation and New York State.

Dr. Yellen has published research articles in character theory of finite groups, graph theory, power-system scheduling, and timetabling. His current research interests include graph theory, discrete optimization, and graph algorithms for software testing.
