List of Publications -- Dr. Joseph George Caldwell

 

Most of the publications listed below are reports to clients, not articles in peer-reviewed journals.  While most of them are applications of mathematical, statistical and computer-science methodology, it some of them contain significant original mathematical research.  The articles produced at Lambda Corporation were “peer reviewed” by well-known scientists in the fields of optimization and game theory, including Hugh Everett III, George E. Pugh and John P. (“Jim”) Mayberry.
