Roos, Charles Frederick (1901–1958)
Born on 18 May 1901, in New Orleans, Roos completed his Ph.D. in mathematics at Rice Institute in 1926. Influenced directly by his supervisor Evans (1922, 1924, 1930) and indirectly by Volterra, his main interests in graduate work were the calculus of variations, integral equations, and applications of those areas of mathematics to problems in dynamic economics.
