Professor Hu is an expert on combinatorial algorithms, communications networks, computeraided design, distributed computing, and operations research. Some of his wellknown research contributions include the GomoryHu tree on Multiterminal flows; the HuTucker algorithm for constructing optimum alphabetic binary code; the HuShing algorithm on the multiplication of matrices; as well as an algorithm on parallel processing.In 1997, he cowon the award for best paper at the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society; the paper*The replication cut for partitioning"was coauthored by L.T.Liu, M.T. Kuo and C.K. Cheng.
Capsule Bio: T.C. Hu joined the UCSD faculty in 1974. Prior to that, he worked at the IBM. Research Center and the University of Wisconsin. He has served as an associated editor SIAM and ORSA an editor of IEEE Transaction on Computers. Hu is the author of the books "Integer Programming and Network Flows" (translated into German, Russian, and Japanese), and "Combinatorial Algorithms." He is coeditor of "Mathematical Programming" with S. M. Robinson, and "Theory and Concepts of Circuit Layout" with E. S. Kuh, and numerous technical papers. Hu received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University in 1960.
