About Me

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 sabbatical.

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.
