Ecker’s research interests are in several areas of optimization including geometric programming, multiple objective linear programming, algorithm development and evaluation in nonlinear programming, and applications of mathematical programming. Mathematical programming deals with the problem of optimizing a function of several variables subject to inequality and equality constraints on other functions of several variables. Recent areas of application include the development of an optimization model of locating protein binding sites on DNA strands and the development of a linear programming model for managing consumer credit delinquency.
