The Departments of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (MCS) and Computer Science (DCS) are saddened by the loss of Professor Emeritus Rudi Mathon.

Rudolf A. "Rudi" Mathon received his first degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Prague in 1962. He received his MSc and PhD in Mathematics from the University of Toronto in 1972 in the areas of numerical analysis of partial differential equations. In 1972, Mathon joined the tri-campus graduate Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

His research interests were in the area of analysis and design of algorithms for numerical and combinatorial problems. Much of his recent research dealt with combinatorial design theory and its application to various areas of computer science.

Mathon also served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Combinatorial Designs and the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics.

Mathon retired as a Professor Emeritus in 2006 after 34 years at the University.
