From the NFL and discrete cut-off blocks, to MIT and discrete Schrödinger operators - love it!
This morning John Urschel informed me of this decision to retire from football,’’ Coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. ‘‘We respect John and respect his decision. We appreciate his efforts over the past three years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.’’ Urschel, who has not publicly commented on his decision, has a second career lined up. A doctoral candidate in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Urschel already has nine published or accepted research papers to his name, according to the school’s magazine MIT Technology Review. His specialties include discrete Schrödinger operators, high dimensional data compression, algebraic multigrid, and Voronoi diagrams.
