The most recent issue of Naval Research Logistics (NRL), Vol. 65(8) 2018, is a special issue (volume 1) in memory of Arthur (Pete) Veinott, Jr.(1934–2012). It is edited by Professor Michael Katehakis at Rutgers University and contains contributions from many of the participants of the Veinott Memorial Rutgers Applied Probability Conference that was held on October 3, 2013. The volume 2 of the Veinott special issue will be coming in 2019.
Professor Veinott's scientific contributions include pioneering work in Markov Decision Processes, inventory control, the general theory of minimizing a subadditive (or submodular) function on a lattice, and the multi-armed bandit problem. For the impact of his research, he was named to the National Academy of Engineering in 1986, and he was made an inaugural INFORMS Fellow in 2002. In 2007, he was awarded the INFORMS John von Neumann Theory Prize. In addition, he was a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and a Guggenheim Fellow.
