Edward M. Reingold (born 1945) is a computer scientist active in the fields of algorithms, data structures, graph drawing, and calendrical calculations.
In 1996 he was inducted as a
Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery. [1 ]
In 2000 he retired from
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and since then is a professor of computer science and applied mathematics at the Illinois Institute of Technology. [2 ]
He has co-authored the standard text on calendrical calculations,
Calendrical Calculations, with Nachum Dershowitz. [3 ] [4 ] [5 ] [6 ]
In 1981 he was the co-author, with
John Tilford of the canonical paper "Tidier Drawings of Trees" which described a method, now known as the Reingold-Tilford algorithm, to produce more ascetically pleasing drawing of binary (and by extension, m-ary) trees .
