|Abstract: ||Traub discusses his academic contributions to computer science and mathematics at Bell Laboratories and at Carnegie-Mellon and Columbia Universities. He describes his work on iterative methods and the publication of his 1964 book, Iterative Methods for the Solution of Equations. He talks about his role in the development of computational complexity, out of an attempt beginning in the mid-1960s to construct a theory of operational algorithms. He also discusses algorithms he has constructed for the solution of linear systems and polynomials.|
