About Dean W. Lytle
The lecture series honors the late Professor Dean W. Lytle who began his career as an assistant professor in 1958 at the University of Washington Department of Electrical Engineering. Professor Lytle's teaching and research was in communications, networks, probability and signal processing. He wrote two textbooks, Introduction to Random Processes, and with W.W. Harman, Electrical and Mechanical Networks. Professor Lytle’s consulting work included long-term and high-impact appointments at Boeing, Honeywell, and Bell Telephone.
The Lecture Series was made possible by a fundraising campaign led by Lytle’s PhD student, Dr. Louis Scharf (Class of '69). The lectures are a tribute to Lytle's 40-year career at UW and his cohort of friends and colleagues, who inspired and guided students with their teaching and mentoring.
Professor Dean Lytle received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering in 1950 from the University of California, Berkeley. He received both his M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1954 and 1957, respectively.
