Abstract: Abstract Abraham (Abe) Charneswas an internationally acclaimed mathematician, a pioneer of operations research (OR), and one of the great figures in management science (MS). Abe’s fundamental contributions in optimization, statistics, finance, marketing, and human resource management spanned a 50-year career. An outstanding characteristic of his research was his talent to create new mathematical formulations that were motivated by real-world applications, but entailed important theoretical and methodological advances.
