Richard F. Patterson
Mathematics and Statistics

Richard Patterson is a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics in the College of Arts & Sciences. His area is Classical Analysis/ Summability Theory. The notions of rearrangement, stretching and subsequence of a double sequence were among the first notions presented by Dr. Patterson and these notions did not just allow him and other mathematicians to formulate and prove new theorems, but it also gave them the correct way of viewing four-dimensional matrix transformation of double sequences. In addition to these notions, Dr. Patterson proved a series of new fundamental theorems for Approximation by positive operators, Gibbs Phenomenon, Fuzzy Numbers, Orlicz and Modulus sequences spaces, Core Theorems, Tauberian Theorems, and Rates of P-convergence. These results have been published in over 25 international journals of mathematics.
