Since I’m accounting for my work to date, this is a good place to mention my Master’s Thesis in Mathematics, published at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas in January 1968, a few weeks before I went into the Army.
The thesis is titled “Minimax Rational Function Approximation“.
The link with abstract and PDF is here. The abstract explains what the subject matter is. I seem to have misplaced the black-covered bound copy, but’s around somewhere. But I can always reprint it from the PDF.
When I was in Army Basic, toward the end, I actually had an unsuccessful interview for a direct commission. I had arranged for my parents to mail a copy of the thesis, which actually lived (quite legally, as far as inspections were concerned) in my foot locker the last couple of weeks.
