### Retired

A retired applied mathematician, consultant, sometime mechanical engineer, numerical analyst, woodworker, bridge player. Please DON'T contact me, as too many students then decide I am their personal consultant if I allow it. Anyway. I won't answer questions. PERIOD. I don't do your homework. I won't do consulting by mail.
