Meet the Faculty

Frank Bäuerle

Frank Bäuerle was born and raised in southern Germany. He grew up in Weinsberg, a small town amid castle ruins from the Middle Ages and vineyards that were first cultivated by the Romans when they occupied this land some two thousand years ago. He did his undergraduate work in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technische Hochschule in Karlsruhe, Germany, after which he received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from The University of California at San Diego. Frank did his research work in Recursion and Complexity theory, an area lying at the intersection of Applied Logic and Theoretical Computer Science..

Anthony (Tony) Tromba was born and raised in New York where he attended The Brooklyn Technical High School. He completed his undergraduate work in Mathematics at Cornell University and received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Princeton. His first academic position was as Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University. He later held the Chair of Analysis at the Ludwig Maximilians Universität in Munich, Germany, and is now a Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at the University of California at Santa Cruz. His Vector Calculus textbook, which appears in six editions and five languages, is used by many of America's leading universities.
