Remembering Karl Menger 2015

Karl 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. View past comments in Memories of Karl Menger.

Each year we organize a number of events for students, faculty, and alumni for the annual Karl Menger Lecture and Awards. This year’s events were held March 30-31 on the Illinois Institute of Technology Main Campus. View the Karl Menger archive »
