Professor Bressoud works in number theory, combinatorics, and analysis and is particularly interested in the history of mathematics and how to use it in teaching mathematics. His many textbooks include *Factorization and Primality Testing*, * Second Year Calculus from Celestial Mechanics to Special Relativity*, * A Radical Approach to Real Analysis* (now in 2nd edition), *A Radical Approach to Lebesgue’s Theory of Integration*, *Proofs and Confirmation: The Story of the Alternating Sign Matrix Conjecture,* and, with Stan Wagon*, A Course in Computational Number Theory*. He enjoys travel, swimming, and bicycling.
