    SOFTWARE ENGINEERING, PROGRAMMING AND SOFTWARE SYSTEM ANALYSIS

    PART ONE: ACADEMIC MAINFRAME PROGRAMMING

    1. Mainframe Programming: Over 30 years of Software and hardware System Engineering and programming beginning on mainframes and including minicomputers and microcomputer, and related technologies.

    2. Algorithms on mainframes: Designed and implemented algorithms in APL, P/L-1 and Fortran, on IBM 360 for the numerical solutions of partial Differential Equation. The primary partial Differential equation used was the Vlasov equation in ionized gas. This is the transport equation used for the non-linear interaction of lasers and plasma.

    3. Numerical Solutions on mainframes: The numerical solutions were generated using first and second order harmonic analysis on the linearized solutions to Vlasov’s equation. The solution to this problem was the major part of my thesis topic. The paper which was associated with this Master’s Thesis was published in the Canadian Journal of Physics and the title of the article was: “Difference frequency Harmonic Ionic Heating in Magnetized Plasmas.”

    4. A/I Algorithms: Research studies, design, analysis and implementation of Artificial Intelligence algorithms based on;

    • Sorting Algorithms
    • Optimal Search Patterns
    • Shortest Path

    PART THREE: PROGRAMMING ON UNIX (DEC PDP-11) AND X-25 NETWORKING

    Extensive use of Cobol and fortran in software systems in time and motion analysis for U.S. Motors. I was employed by Emerson Electric at the time.

    PART FOUR: ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS PROGRAMMING ON WINDOWS 2000 SERVER AND USING TCP/IP NETWORKING

    Since the fall of 1999 have been the lead software developer of a Software Development Company called Advanced Software Development, Inc. and a related marketing company called Regional Electronic Medical Systems, Inc.

    The software package is a HIPAA compliant piece of medical software which is distributed, does data entry, data archival and medical billing.

    • On this project the Senior Engineer was responsible for the major portion of the system specifications. The Domain Experts were two local Medical Practitioners and friends.
    • Project design was done using the UML Notation and use case analysis.
    • Project was first coded in Java
    • Project is now coded in C#

    PART Five: ENCRYPTION SOFTWARE DEVELOPED ON CENT OS-7 (LINUX) AND USING TCP/IP NETWORKING
