Meet the Author

William HaloupekMathematician -- PhD 1992University of Wisconsin-MadisonAstronomy is my hobby. Kind of an obsession at times!I started out in Topology and Analysis at Texas Tech, then went to Wisconsin and switched to Applied Math. Started working on a PhD thesis in General Relativity, then changed to Dynamical Systems, and ended up with a PhD in Differentiability Theory.I'm pretty comfortable with most Math and Classical Physics. Never could understand the Quantum stuff. Elementary Particle Theory makes no sense to me.I also worked as a radar engineer in the missile defense industry for 10 years. After 10 years I can't claim to be a real engineer. I just worked on the mathematical problems the engineers could come up with for me. Still, it gave me an appreciation of the "real world."Other hobbies: genealogy, coin collecting,science fiction, philosophy, hiking.
