Person: Montroll, Elliott Waters
Elliott Montroll was an American scientist and mathematician who worked in a variety of applied mathematical and statistical areas.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 They taught Elliott to read and write before he entered school for the first time at the age of five.
 It was clear that given his passion for chemistry that was the subject Montroll would study at university.
 Montroll was now in the unusual position of being able to work in mathematics, physics or chemistry departments.
 In 1943 Montroll was appointed as Head of the Mathematics Research Group at the Kellex Corporation in New York.
 During his time at Maryland, Montroll published Topics in statistical mechanics of interacting particles which was 86 pages of mimeographed notes of a lecture series, written jointly with G F Newell.
 At the Third Berkeley Symposium on Mathematical Statistics and Probability 19541955, Montroll gave a paper Theory of the vibration of simple cubic lattices with nearest neighbor interactions in which described vibrations of a cubic lattice with 1, 2, 3, and nnn dimensions where nnn is large.
 Montroll was not someone who was happy to remain in one place for a long time and by 1960, having been at the University of Maryland for nine years, he felt it was time to move on.
 Montroll's work led to him receiving many honours and prizes.
Born 4 May 1916, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, USA. Died 3 December 1983, Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA.
