After studies at the University of Würzburg, SUNY Oneonta, and Temple University, and postdoctoral positions at SUNY Binghamton, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA, and the Max-Planck-Institute in Bonn, Germany, Matthias Beck arrived at San Francisco State University, where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department.
His research is in discrete & computational geometry and analytic number theory. Particular interests include counting integer points in polyhedra and the application of these enumeration functions to various combinatorial and number-theoric topics and problems. He (co-)authored more than 40 research publications, including the Springer UTM text "Computing the Continuous Discretely" (with Sinai Robins).
He has mentored numerous graduate students at SF State and UC Berkeley, and he directs the (CM)^2: Creating Momentum through Communicating Mathematics program, an NSF-sponsored GK-12 program at SF State.Academic Disciplines:
