W. Matula received the Ph.D. (66) in engineering science from the
University of California, Berkeley, following a B.S. (59) in
engineering physics from Washington University, St. Louis. Since 1974 he
has served as Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at SMU. He
has held visiting research and teaching positions at UT Austin (73),
the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School (78), and Stanford (80) in the
U.S; in Karlsruhe (74) Frankfurt (86), and Dresden (98) in
Germany; in Aarhus (80) and Odense (89-90) in Denmark; and in
Lyon (99), France.
research focuses on the foundations and applications of algorithm
engineering with specific emphasis on computer arithmetic and
graph/network algorithms. He has published over one hundred archival
publications. Two-thirds of his publications focus on computer
arithmetic and have appeared primarily in the IEEE and computer science
literature. Dr. Matula was the keynote speaker for the 16th
IEEE ARITH Symposia (03), and has been involved in organizing the
IEEE Symposium on Computer Arithmetic since 1975. His computer
arithmetic research has been supported for several decades by federal,
state, and corporate agencies, including NSF, Texas ATP, T.I., Cyrix,
and the Semiconductor Research Corporation.
Matulas publications on graph algorithms have appeared in a variety
of mathematical and scientific journals including J. Chem. Physics, J.
Am. Chem. Soc., Comp. and Biomedical Res., and Geographical Analysis. He
is a founding editorial board member of Random Structures and
Algorithms, the ORSA Journal on Computing and the Journal
As a consultant Dr. Matula has participated in the design of floating point units for microprocessors with Cyrix (88-97), National Semiconductor (97-03), and AMD (03-current). He was a co-designer of the Cyrix FasMath coprocessors, and the one-watt Geode (x-86 compatible) processor introduced by N.S.M. in 2003 and now available from AMD. He has consulted for industry on intellectual property and served on SMUs intellectual property committee for eleven years. Dr. Matula holds 14 U.S. Patents and has 5 applications pending. In the past ten years, five of his Ph. D. students have experienced being co-inventors on these patents and pending applications.
