Working on Probability Problems

 

November, 1998. Mathematics Professor Richard Dudley working on a probability and statistics problem in his cluttered office. His desk is covered with piles of paper destined for either the recycling bin or books he’s working on, as well as scientific papers waiting to be reviewed. He’s been at MIT since 1967.
