Remembering Karl Menger

Karl MengerKarl Menger was a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics at IIT from 1946-1971. Regarded as one of the finest mathematicians of the 20th century, he made significant contributions to the fields of dimension theory, probability, economics, ethics, geometry, and calculus. He influenced many students, fellow faculty members, and friends during his lifetime.

Each year we invite an outside speaker to be the Karl Menger Lecturer, around which we organize a number of events for students, faculty, and alumni.
