Moti Yung gets cited in Harpers by Barry Eisler.

The phenomenal Ingrid Daubechies is quoted on the game theory behind how to divide a real estate empire threeways: three parties bid, lowest bidder partitions the estate into 3 parts, then a coin flip decides the order among the other two to pick their choice of partition. The goal seems to be to get a envy-free solution.
