Applied Geometry and Discrete Mathematics: The Victor Klee FestschriftShare this page
Edited by Bernd Sturmfels; Peter Gritzmann
A co-publication of the AMS, DIMACS, and Association for Computing Machinery
This volume, published jointly with the Association for Computing
Machinery, comprises a collection of research articles celebrating the
occasion of Victor Klee's sixty-fifth birthday in September 1990.
During his long career, Klee has made contributions to a wide variety
of areas, such as discrete and computational geometry, convexity,
combinatorics, graph theory, functional analysis, mathematical
programming and optimization, and theoretical computer science. In
addition, Klee made important contributions to mathematics education,
mathematical methods in economics and the decision sciences,
applications of discrete mathematics in the biological and social
sciences, and the transfer of knowledge from applied mathematics to
In honor of Klee's achievements, this volume presents more than forty papers on topics related to Klee's research. While the majority of the papers are research articles, a number of survey articles are also included. Mirroring the breadth of Klee's mathematical contributions, this book shows how different branches of mathematics interact. It is a fitting tribute to one of the foremost leaders in discrete mathematics.
Co-published with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 1–7 were co-published with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
