Lev B. Levitin

            Lev B. Levitin has been Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Distinguished Professor of Engineering Science at Boston University since 1982 and 1986, respectively.  Dr.  Levitin has been developing information theory for quantum systems, which reveals fundamental limitations in data transmission and computation due to the quantum statistical nature of information carriers and devices.  In coding theory, he has suggested an efficient algorithm for decoding linear error-correcting codes.  He has contributed to the universal testing theory and other problems of computer hardware testing, theory of modulation codes, and information analysis of natural languages.  He teaches graduate courses on discrete mathematics, information theory and stochastic modeling.

            Dr.  Levitin received the B.S. and M.S.  degrees in 1960, and the Ph.D. degree in 1969, all in Physics.  He has been Visiting Scientist at Regensburg University and Humboldt University, and Guest scientist at a number of research centers, and was elected Fellow of the IEEE in 1993.
