      ---- Speaker's Bio

      Dr. Clark is a retired research scientist in the field of lasers and
      optics. His research included conceptual design of optical
      communication systems, optical radar systems, and many kinds of
      imaging systems. He has been successful in using computer technology
      to solve several difficult imaging problems, such as imaging through
      the distortion of a turbulent atmosphere, imaging of space objects
      with large arrays of separate and un-phased collectors, and imaging
      from space using large, optically imperfect mirrors. In seemingly
      impossible imaging problems, he has been able to retrieve excellent
      images from the nearly chaotic data by the use of computer power.

      Since retiring in 1991, Dr. Clark has turned his talents to the
      subject of redistricting, a problem considered intractable by many
      mathematicians. One expert calculated that a computer examining a
      million districts per second, and starting fifteen billion years ago
      at the beginning of the universe, would still not have finished
      looking at all the possible redistricting plans for California.

      Fortunately, the number of legal district maps is much smaller, and
      the problem can be solved in a reasonable length of time, even on a
      desk-top computer. To see an example of the result, click on "Fair
      Voting Districts."
