Peter R. Massopust is a Privatdozent in the Center of Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and his habilitation from the Technical University of Munich. He worked at several universities in the United States, at the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque (USA), and as a senior research scientist in industry before returning to the academic environment. He has written more than sixty peer-reviewed articles in the mathematical areas of Fourier Analysis, Approximation Theory, Fractals, Splines, and Harmonic Analysis and more than 20 technical reports while working in the non-academic environment. He has authored or coauthored two textbooks and two monographs, and coedited two Contemporary Mathematics Volumes and several Special Issues for peer-reviewed journals. He is on the editorial board of several mathematics journals and has given more than one hundred invited presentations at national and international conferences, workshops, and seminars.
