Short Biography of Joachim Rosenthal

Joachim Rosenthal is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Zürich and Adjunct Professor at the University of Notre Dame.
He received the Diplom in Mathematics from the University of Basel in 1986 and the Ph.D. in Mathematics from Arizona State University in 1990.

During the academic year 1989/1990 he was a Lecturer at Washington University in St. Louis.

From 1990 until 2006 he has been with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, where he has been last "The Notre Dame Chair in Applied Mathematics" and Concurrent Professor of Electrical Engineering.

In the academic year 1994/1995 he spent a sabbatical year at CWI the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. During the academic year 1999/2000 he was a Guest Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, affiliated with the School of Computer & Communication Sciences .

His current research interests are in coding theory and cryptography. In coding theory he is interested in convolutional codes, LDPC codes and more general codes on graphs. In cryptography his main interest lies in the construction of new oneway trapdoor functions.

He is or has been on the editorial board of Advances in Mathematics of Communications (AMC), Journal of Algebra and Its Applications (JAA), Journal of Mathematical Systems, Estimation, and Control, Linear Algebra and its Applications, Mathematics of Control, Signals, and Systems (MCSS), SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, Systems and Control Letters, and
In August 2002 he served as the Symposium Chair of the International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems (MTNS).

My Academic Ancestors from the Mathematics Genealogy Project.

It is pretty interesting. Of course I am not quite sure in what regard Lagrange was a student of Euler and for this you might also read the biography on Lagrange.
If you have access to MathSciNet then you can compute my Erdos number.
