DR. RICHARD SILVERS
B.A., Physics, Columbia University
Ph.D. Mathematical Physics, University of London
 
 
He could easily
be called the
“Einstein of
State Lotteries”

for his mathematical analyses of
nearly every lottery draw.
 
 

Named “One of 50 R&D Stars to Watch” by Industry Week magazine in 1996, Professor Richard Silvers is not only an applied mathematician, but a physicist, computer scientist, and inventor as well — who creates unique products from a knowledge of current technology and projection of future technological trends.

Professor Silvers holds the doctorate in mathematical physics (general relativity) from the prestigious University of London, as well as an undergraduate degree in physics from Columbia University.

He has published more than 50 papers in the journals of learned societies, given 200 presentations to mathematical and scientific societies, and has more than 20 patents issued and pending.

On the research staff at MIT at the Laboratory for Computer Science and Lincoln Laboratory, Professor Silvers (pseudonym) was a coauthor of MACSYMA and advocate of computer algebra systems. He was the first scientist to apply these techniques to solve intractable mathematical problems in science, engineering, defense systems, and finance. And he created the first computer algebra system capable of performing indicial tensor calculus.
