After attending both Swarthmore College and the University of Michigan, David Gale earned his PhD in mathematics from Princeton University and subsequently taught for over a decade at Brown University.
Gale's 1962 paper with Lloyd Shapley on the stable marriage problem provides the first formal statement and proof of a problem that has far-reaching implications in many matching markets. The resulting Gale–Shapley algorithm is currently being applied in New York and Boston public school systems in assigning students to schools. In 2012 The Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Shapley for this work.
In 2004 Gale developed MathSite, a pedagogic website that uses interactive exhibits to illustrate important mathematical ideas. MathSite won the 2007 Pirelli Internetional Award for Science Communication in Mathematics.
Currently, David Gale is 99 years, 9 months and 5 days old. David Gale will celebrate 100th birthday on a Monday 13th of December 2021.
