Professor of Mathematics Robert Kantrowitz co-authored a
paper, "Optimization for products of concave functions," with Michael
M. Neumann of Mississippi State University, which appears in the
latest issue of Rendiconti del Circolo Matematico di Palermo. In the
paper, Kantrowitz extends several classical optimization results for
concave functions on convex sets to the much larger class of products
of finitely many concave functions.
