John Todd--Numerical Mathematics Pioneer
Albers, Don
College Mathematics Journal, v38 n1 p2-23 Jan 2007
John Todd, now in his mid-90s, began his career as a pure mathematician, but World War II interrupted that. In this interview, he talks about his education, the significant developments in his becoming a numerical analyst, and the journey that concluded at Caltech. Among the interesting stories are how he met his wife-to-be the mathematician Olga Taussky Todd and how he "saved Oberwolfach."
