Bruce R Miller (Fed)

Bruce R. Miller is Information Technology Editor of the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions and the developer of LaTeXML. He is on the staff of the Mathematical Software Group, within the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division of the Information Technology Laboratory.

He recieved a Ph.D. in experimental physics (Atomic & Molecular) from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983. Exploring the theoretical models corresonding to his experiments inspired a love of symbolic computation. This led to a seeking a Post-Doctoral position at NIST under the amazing Andre Deprit, carrying out research in Celestial Mechanics, Computer Algebra and automated perturbation theory. He has been at NIST ever since.

The advent of the World Wide Web led to new opportunities to increase and exploit mathematical knowledge; yet another flavor of symbolic computation. Current interests Mathematical Knowledge Management; interoperable, semantic representations of mathematics; the Semantic Web; as well as the potential for a global digital mathematical library accessible to all.
