For 2008-2009, I was a Visiting Professor at Salisbury
University in Salisbury, MD, in the Department
of Mathematics and Computer Science. I'll be continuing at
SU for at least 2009-2010. You can find me there as follows (although
the website mostly points back to this site):
You can find out a little more about me professionally
from my current CV.
What I was doing before I joined the Salisbury Faculty
After six years as Chair of the Mathematics Department
at Boston College (2001-2007), my family and I chose to leave
New England and relocated to southern Delaware. I will not bereturning
to BC, despite a professional relationship that lasted 30 years,
and an overall relationship that dates back to my undergraduate
days at BC that began in 1968.
I enjoyed a sabbatical during 2007-2008. My major
project for that year was working with Paul R. Thie on An
Introduction to Linear Programming and Game Theory, Third Edition,
which was published by John Wiley and Sons, Inc., in July, 2008.
I have a picture available of the
cover design. I also wrote some software
to accompany the new edition that may be of interest.
I worked with Gerald G. Bilodeau and Paul R. Thie
on a second edition of their text An Introduction to Analysis,
originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1997. It was published
just today(see the news below!), July 28. 2009. Finally, my regular
band of coauthors and I worked on new (third) editions of Getting
Started with Mathematica and Getting Started with Maple.
These are now in print with John Wiley & Sons.
What I'm doing at Salisbury University
A Maryland University of National Distinction
In addition to teaching classes in College Algebra and
Calculus at SU last Fall, I was able to clean up some
publication activities that were put in motion during last year's
I taught the same classes at SU this past Spring semester, and
I'll be continuing at SU for the 2009-2010 academic year. (I'll
be teaching courses in Statistics and Calculus
this Fall.) I'll also be looking for new projects that can benefit
both me and my newly-found friends and colleagues at Salisbury.
The Second Edition of An Introduction to Analysis, with
Paul Thie and Gerald Bilodeau, appeared just today (July 28, 2009).
