Famous Black Mathematicians – Donald Richards

I was familiar with Dr. Richards’ work from past web searches and from his talks on Genetic Algorithms in optimimization.  Dr. Richards obtained his undergraduate degree in mathematics from the Univ. of the West Indies and obtained his Ph.D. two years later in 1978.  That’s a pretty incredible achievement.

Dr. Richards currently serves on the faculty at Penn State University.  Visit this page for more on Dr. Richards, including a list of committee memberships and an impressive publication list.
