Prasad Tetali was one of four Georgia Tech professors named as a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Tetali was recognized for contributions to discrete mathematics and algorithms.
The SIAM Fellows Program began in 2008 to recognize members who have made outstanding contributions to their fields. More on the program can be found at fellows.siam.org.
The other Georgia Tech professors named as Fellows were William Cook (ISyE), for contributions to the Traveling Salesman Problem and other combinatorial optimization problems, Ellis Johnson for contributions to combinatorial optimization and its application to logistical problems, and George Nemhauser (ISyE) for contributions to scheduling methodology and large-scale combinatorial optimization problems. All three Fellows are members of the multidisciplinary program in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO)
