NEW YORK (Jul. 30)
Yeshiva University’s Belfer Graduate School of Science has announced the establishment of a new master’s program in problem-solving techniques designed to give professionals up-to-date analytical tools to study flood predictions, plant operation logistics, city planning and environmental factors as they affect genetic mutations.
Dr. Paul Raccah, director of the program, to begin in the fall, said it is intended for those whose occupations relate man to his natural and technological environment. The program combines the discipline of linear programming or operations research with the science of measurement. The curriculum will include computer science, theory and technology of measurement, studies on information and a new branch of science referred to as “mathematics of the unknown,” he said.
