Biography

Louis V. Quintas studied mathematics at Columbia University and The City University of New York. He was a Professor of Mathematics at Pace University, New York, from from 1967 to 2003, where he received The Kenan Outstanding Teacher Award in 1975 and the Dyson Society of Fellows Class of 1995 was named in his honor. He continues his connection with Pace University as Professor of Mathematics Emeritus and Ex Officio member of the New York Mathematics Department.

He has written over 160 research articles on functional equations, algebraic topology, combinatorial geometry, theoretical and algorithmic random graph theory, mathematical chemistry, and microvascular research in refereed journals, a book on Random Graphs with Bounded Degree, over 33 technical reports, and textbooks on linear programming, statistics, and word processing. His teaching experience has exposed him to almost every topic in the undergraduate curriculum, with his favorite being discrete mathematics. He has been on the organizing committees of four international conferences, co-chair of three, and co-edited three of their proceedings. He is a founding editor and co-edited from 1980 to 2013, Graph Theory Notes of New York, a refereed journal originally published by The New York Academy of Sciences and since 2009 by The Metropolitan New York Section of The Mathematical Association of America.

He is a Fellow of The New York Academy of Sciences and has chaired its mathematics section. He has presented his research at national and international conferences, workshops, and as a visitor to other universities.  He has served twice as the chair of the mathematics department at Pace University and continues to be mathematically active with a special interest in mentoring students. He is a member of the American Mathematical Society, Mathematical Association of America, and the Canadian organization , The Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications of which he is a Fellow. 

He attributes his love of mathematics to Howard Levi, Fred Supnick, and Alan J. Hoffman, the latter being his doctoral sponsor at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
