Sten Thore is a centennial fellow emeritus of the IC² Institute. He joined the Institute in 1978 and, following the centennial celebration of the university in 1983, was appointed to the Gregory A. Kozmetsky Centennial Fellowship. In September 2012, Dr. Thore received the diploma of “doctor philosophiae jubilaris” from the hands of rector magnificus, the University of Stockholm. His monograph Economic Logistics (1991, with a chapter on saddle point theory coauthored with W.W. Cooper) treats the mathematical programming of hierarchical multi-echelon production, inventory, and distribution systems. The textbook Computational Economics: Economic Modeling with Optimization Software (1991), coauthored with G. L. Thompson pioneered the integration of economics with computer software. He has published some 30 papers on data envelopment analysis (DEA), applying this technique to subjects as diverse as the rating of high-technology stocks, the economic and social performance of nations, and the evaluation of new technology ventures. After retirement in 1996, he assumed a personal chair in the commercialization of high technology at the Instituto Superior Tecnico, Lisbon, resulting in the edited volume Technology Commercialization: DEA and Related Analytical Methods, 2002. The volume by Sten Thore and Ruzanna Tarverdyan, Diagnostics for a Globalized World (Now publishers, 2015) is dedicated to the memory of the IC² Institute long-time centennial fellow, W. W. Cooper, and proposes to extend the technique of data envelopment analysis to the field of international social and economic policy.
