Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has several capabilities in applied mathematics, and can help with questions in this area. His formal education was focused on physics, applied physics, and mathematics and he has taken an advanced course in mathematical physics, complex variables, and perturbation methods. His Ph.D. thesis used several applied mathematical techniques. He has taught mathematical physics and worked as a Research Scientist for over 20 years concentrating on plasma physics and applying a number of mathematical techniques to solve research problems.

applied mathematics

Expert is skilled in electromagnetism, particularly in regard to the physics and basic engineering principles of it. He has studied electricity and magnetism, including having taken advanced courses of both Electromagnetic Theory and a Microwave Lab. He has also taught electricity and magnetism and done research on plasma physics for over 27 years, concentrating on waves, radiation, and other electrical interactions in it. He has written and published papers on bremstrahlung in plasmas, Cerenkov radiation in plasmas, and auroral kilometric radiation that is generated naturally out in space.
