Writings of Theodore J. Kaczynski

Published Works of Theodore Kaczynski

Like many parents would, my mother always told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say about someone I shouldn't say anything at all. Whether he is a clever and calculating murderer, a victim of mental illness, a visionary revolutionist as suggested by one visitor to this site, or perhaps all or none of the above, is not for me to judge. But one thing, at least, is certain about Theodore Kaczynski--he is a brilliant mathematician.

During his mathematical career in the late 1960s, Kaczynski published a doctoral dissertation and several papers in academic journals, listed below. The full text of most of these papers can be found at many university libraries. When a title is highlighted, a link to a summary of the paper is provided.

Note: I am not a mathematician, so the mathematical notations in the summaries might be incorrect or incomplete. If you see an error that can be corrected, let me know and I'll fix it.
