Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Albert William Tucker (28 November 1905 - 25 January 1995) was a Canadian-born American mathematician who made important contributions in topology, game theory, and non-linear programming. Albert Tucker was born in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, and earned his B.A. at the University of Toronto in 1928. In 1932, he completed his Ph.D. at the Princeton University under the supervision of Solomon Lefschetz, with the thesis An Abstract Approach to Manifolds. In 1932-33 he was a National Research Fellow at Cambridge, Harvard, and the University of Chicago. He then returned to Princeton to join the faculty in 1933, where he stayed till 1970. He chaired the mathematics department for about twenty years, one of the longest tenures. His extensive relationships within the field made him a great source for oral histories of the mathematics community.
