Jacob K. White
Jacob K. White is the Cecil H. Green Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He researches fast numerical algorithms for simulation, particularly the simulation of circuits. His work on the FASTCAP program for three-dimensional capacitance calculation and FASTHENRY, a program for three-dimensional inductance calculations, is highly cited. He has also done extensive work on steady-state simulation of analog and microwave circuits. White was a significant early contributor to the development of Spectre and SpectreRF.
White received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1985, working on waveform relaxation under advising professor Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli. He worked for IBM prior to joining the MIT faculty.
