Norbert Wiener 1894-1964 (Vita Mathematica)

Masani, Pesi R.

Masani is both a highly respected mathematician as well as a person who knows Wiener quite well. Masani writes a review of Wiener's life and contributions and, although it is not a biography in the typical manner, it is a collection of very readable and insightful discussions on Wiener's contributions and how his life intertwined with these works. Masani explains many of the complex technical issues regarding such topics as the ergodic theorems, generalized harmonic analysis and the Brownian motion contributions with exceptional ease. He does justice to the work Wiener did on structuring the early concepts of digital computers and the work he did with CY Lee on filtering in communications networks.
