Information trouvée : Lenore Blum Born: 1943 in New York, USA. Blum is her married name which she only took after marrying Manual Blum, who was also a mathematician. Lenore attended a public school in New York City until she was nine years old when her family moved to South America. In 1968 she was awarded a Ph.D. for a thesis Generalized Algebraic Structures: A Model Theoretical Approach. She was offered an appointment as a postdoctoral student, Lecturer in Mathematics, and research associate at the University of California at Berkeley and she remained there for two years. In 1973 she was employed by Mills College to teach an algebra course, but finding the course unsatisfactory she began to develop new educational ideas. In 1974 she founded the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mills College and served as its Head or co-Head until 1987. During this time, in 1979, she became the first holder of the Letts-Villard Chair at Mills College. Elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1979, she served as Chair of the Mathematics Section in 1998 - 1999. We should now discuss Blum's impressive contributions to research. After her thesis, perhaps her next important piece of work was Towards a Mathematical Theory of Inductive Inference, Information and Control which she published jointly with her husband Manuel Blum. Blum's next important paper was Differentially closed fields: a model-theoretic tour which appeared in 1977. In 1988, she became a member of the Theory Group of the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley. After this Blum served as Deputy Director of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley from 1992 to 1997. Beginning in the late 1980s and continuing throughout the 1990s Blum, with several co-authors, has developed new directions in the theory of computation and complexity. An important first contribution was Blum's 1989 paper Lectures on a theory of computation and complexity over the reals (or an arbitrary ring) which extended the theories of computation and computational complexity from the standard discrete situation to study how these ideas can be developed in continuous domains such as the real number system. The first textbook on this important new area was Complexity and Real Computation published in 1998 jointly by Blum, Steve Smale, Mike Shub, and Felipe Cucker. Blum spent the academic years 1996-98 as Visiting Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at the City University of Hong Kong. In 1999 Blum was appointed Distinguished Career Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
