Jörg Bewersdorff (born 1 February 1958 in Neuwied)[1] is a German mathematician who is working as mathematics writer and game designer.[2]

Life and work[edit]

After obtaining his Abitur from the Werner-Heisenberg-Gymnasium in Neuwied[3] Bewersdorff studied mathematics from 1975 to 1982 at the University of Bonn.[4] In 1982 he submitted his diploma in mathematics in Bonn[4] and in 1985 he received his doctorate there under the supervision of Günter Harder[5] (A Lefschetz fixed point formula for Hecke operators).[6]

In 1985 Bewersdorff started a career as game designer.[1] Since 1998[4] he is general manager of subsidiaries of the Gauselmann AG.[1][7][8] Bewersdorff is author of four textbooks dealing with probability theory, mathematics of gambling, game theory, combinatorial game theory, Galois theory, mathematical statistics, JavaScript and object-orientated programming. Two of them were translated into English. One book was translated also to Korean.[9] Bewersdorff's books are undergraduate level books. Their goal is to explain applications and what is going on behind the formalism.[10][11]
