I am an active professional aerospace instructor with over 7000 hours in the air; I am an amateur mathematician (minored in Math 1970, KU) and an associate editor since 2002.
I have the honor of being cited in the 'The Encyclopedia Of Integer Sequences' as being "our most prolific contributor of new sequences". Probably my most noteworthy sequence is A007097: R.G. Wilson's Primeth recurrence: a(n+1) = a(n)-th prime. The name is in honor of my father who died just a few months before the publication of the Encyclopedia. My best algorithm is probably SemiPrimePi which I first formulated and posted on May 16 2005 but which I have refined (Jan 03 2006) to what it is today.
I have authored over 3600 sequences, and I have had the pleasure to co-author with over one hundred different OEIS contributors. This does not come anywhere close to the number that our leader has partnered with, but it's been rewarding.
I was born the same day that the first practical electronic transistor was demonstrated by Bardeen, Brattain, and Shockley of the United States or the year corresponding to a number whose last differences of its divisors is 0.
My goal is to create the "best" Mathematica® program for many of the sequences in the OEIS database as I have time and energy for plus extend those which I find interesting. I believe that by adding the Mathematica® coding this helps to define the sequence.
