2015 Dantzig Prize Citation

The George B. Dantzig prize is awarded for original research, which by its originality, breadth, and scope, is having a major impact on the field of mathematical programming. The 2015 winner is

  • Dimitri Bertsekas from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Dimitri Bertsekas has been a leading force in optimization over many years. He has made highly original and fundamental contributions to dynamic programming, analysis and development of augmented Lagrangian methods, auction and relaxation methods for linear network optimization, deterministic and stochastic techniques in systems and control, first-order methods, parallel and distributed optimization, and several other areas. He has also been involved in applications of optimization to energy production systems and data network communications. Through scholarly papers, research monographs, and textbooks, his work has influenced several generations of optimization researchers, and continues to have a major impact on the field.
