Heinz-Otto Peitgen – Wikipedia
Peitgen studied mathematics, physics and economics from until in Bonnwhere he received his PhD in After receiving his habilitation inhe was awarded a professorship in mathematics at the University of Bremenwhere he served until There, he was involved in establishing and developing the Institute for Dynamical Systems, where in he set up a computer graphics laboratory for mathematical experiments.
His research specialties include mathematics, computer science and medical image computing and emphasize algebraic topologynon-linear functional analysis, partial differential equationsfunctional differential equationsdynamical systemsnumerical analysischaos theoryfractal geometrycomputer graphicsimage processingand image and data analysisas well as medical image computingfocusing on medical diagnostics and surgery with a particular emphasis on oncologyas well as neurodegenerative and cardio-vascular diseases.
At the beginning of his career in he contributed to computational algebraic topology.
Later in the s he spearheaded fractal geometry in computer graphics, and in the early s he introduced chaos theory and fractal geometry into mathematics education and spearheaded reforms in teacher training in the US. The second half of his career was almost entirely devoted to the digital applications in medicine, in particular in radiology and surgery. Peitgen held professorships simultaneously in Germany and the US.
From untilhe was, besides his professorship at the University of Bremen also a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Santa Cruz ; and from to he has been a professor of mathematics and biomedical sciences at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
Currently, while retired from the University of Bremen, he is a professor emeritus at Florida Atlantic University. Peitgen left the directorship of the institute inafter he retired from the University of Bremen. With its software solutions, it provides medical practitioners with substantial added value in screening and diagnostics as well as therapy and intervention planning for cancer, particularly breast cancerneurology and lung conditions. Peitgen served as the Chairman of the Supervisory Board between and Peitgen has been appointed to chairs at several German and American universities and has served as a visiting professor at universities in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Italy.
He is the author of several award-winning books, which were translated into German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Polish and Russian and became worldwide bestsellers.
Moreover, he created a series of films that have helped to publicize fractal geometry and chaos theory around the world. He is co-editor of several professional journals with an international readership. In he was awarded Dr. On January 1,Dr. He resigned from the post at the end of From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This biography of a living person needs wnd citations for verification.
