Peter Paule (b. 1958 in Ried im Innkreis, Austria) is Professor of Mathematics (successor to Bruno Buchberger), Director of the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC), and Director of the Doctoral Program on Computational Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.
Paule’s main research interests are computer algebra and algorithmic mathematics, together with connections to combinatorics, special functions, number theory, and other related fields. He is on the editorial boards for the Journal of Symbolic Computation and The Ramanujan Journal, and is Managing Editor of Annals of Combinatorics. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the Springer book series Texts and Monographs in Symbolic Computation.
Paule was a member of the original editorial committee for the DLMF project, in existence from the mid-1990’s to the mid-2010’s. During this time he served as Associate Editor with responsibilities for all aspects of the project. The original committee was reconstituted in 2015; for details see About the Project.
