Lothar Reichel


Lothar Reichel - Kent State University (USA)

Lothar Reichel earned his PhD in Numerical Analysis and Computer Science from the University of Stockholm, Sweden, in 1982. His professional career began in the Department of Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing at the Stockholm Institute of Technology. In 1983 he began teaching at the University of Kentucky. From there, he moved to Kent State University in Ohio where he currently teaches Mathematics. One of Dr. Reichel’s principal professional interests is the development of the electronic medium for scientific publication, and he collaborated in starting the first electronic journal in mathematics, “Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis'' (ETNA), at Kent State University in 1992. He has received numerous research fellowships and has supervised more than 10 PhD theses. He has published more than 100 articles on his different areas of research.


PROJECT: The research project proposes problems in the intersection of Numerical Analysis, Approximation Theory, and the theory of Orthogonal Polynomials. More specifically, the research project tries to advance in the theoretical understanding and in the development of efficient and stable matrix numerical algorithms to compute nodes and weights for Szegö-Kronrod quadrature rules and rational Gauss quadrature rules. Other research problem to be considered in the project is to investigate how to circumvent ill-conditioning when generating numerically Nikishin polynomial systems.
