Professor Bahman Kalantari is a Professor of Computer Science. He is a Ph.D. in Computer Science, M.S. in Mathematics, M.S. in Operations Research, and B.S. in Mathematics and Physics. His research interests lie in theory, algorithms, and applications and in a wide range of topics that include: Mathematical Programming and Matrix Scaling; Discrete and Combinatorial Optimization; Polynomial Root-Finding and Approximation Theory; and Polynomiography, a term he has coined for a novelty that is a by-product of his years of research into the fascinating and historic field of polynomial root-finding. Polynomiography is the fine art and science of visualization of the process of approximating roots of polynomial equations. Polynomiography has vast applications in art and design, math, science and education. Kalantari's Polynomiography has received numerous accolades, recognition and praise from scientists, mathematicians, educators, artists, students, and the general public.
