Short Bio:

Arthur F. Veinott, Jr (known to his friends and family as "Pete") contributed broadly to both the research and teaching of operations research, and also played a key role in creating the Department of Operations Research. His research had major impact in dynamic programming, lattice programming, and inventory theory, for which he was recognized with the INFORMS John von Neumann Theory Prize in 2007, was made an inaugural INFORMS Fellow in 2002, and was named to the National Academy of Engineering in 1986. He also played an important part in creating the INFORMS journal Mathematics of Operations Research, acting also as its founding Editor-in-Chief, and in creating the John von Neumann Theory Prize.
