|Harold Raymond Parks|
|Institutions||Oregon State University|
|Alma mater||Dartmouth College, Princeton University|
|Doctoral advisor||Frederick J. Almgren, Jr.|
|Known for||Geometric measure theory|
Parks obtained his Ph.D. in 1974 from Princeton University, under the supervision of Frederick J. Almgren, Jr. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society. His Doctoral Students include Zachary Gelbaum and Dean C. Wills.
He has developed and implemented a computational technique for computing parametric area minimizing surfaces. He derived an existence and regularity theory for a class of constrained variational problems. Parks has discovered, and characterized, a type of minimal surface with surprising properties, defined in terms of the Jacobi elliptic functions.
