|Known for||Bregman divergence, Bregman's Theorem|
Bregman received his M. Sc. in mathematics in 1963 at Leningrad University and his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1966 at the same institution, under the direction of his advisor Prof. J. V. Romanovsky, for his thesis about relaxation methods for finding a common point of convex sets, which led to one of his most well-known publications.
Bregman was employed at the Institute for Industrial Mathematics, Beer-Sheva, Israel, after having spent one year at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva. Formerly, during 1966-1991, he was senior researcher at the Leningrad University.
