Expert L. Expert has several capabilities in applied mathematics, and can help with questions in this area. His formal education was focused on physics, applied physics, and mathematics and he has taken an advanced course in mathematical physics, complex variables, and perturbation methods. His Ph.D. thesis used several applied mathematical techniques. He has taught mathematical physics and worked as a Research Scientist for over 20 years concentrating on plasma physics and applying a number of mathematical techniques to solve research problems.

Expert is skilled in electromagnetism, particularly in regard to the physics and basic engineering principles of it. He has studied electricity and magnetism, including having taken advanced courses of both Electromagnetic Theory and a Microwave Lab. He has also taught electricity and magnetism and done research on plasma physics for over 27 years, concentrating on waves, radiation, and other electrical interactions in it. He has written and published papers on bremstrahlung in plasmas, Cerenkov radiation in plasmas, and auroral kilometric radiation that is generated naturally out in space.

Expert has worked with electrical science, particularly in regard to the physics and basic engineering principles of it. He studied electricity and magnetism while completing his Ph.D. and taught courses as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee. He has also done research in plasma physics, with a concentration on waves, radiation, and other electrical interactions in it.

Expert is quite skilled in plasma physics and basic engineering applications of it. Over the course of his education, teaching, and research, he has studied plasma physics and applied physics. His research has been primarily in plasma physics for over 27 years, concentrating on waves, radiation, and other wave and particle interactions in it. He has written and published 70 papers and two books on plasmas.

He is experienced with both mechanics and electrical science, including engineering applications of it. He has also lectured on car accidents and braking to a number of audiences, as well as dynamic processes near the Earth.

Expert has worked as a Research Scientist focusing on outer space for over 20 years, first on contract at the Naval Research Labs and then at the University of Iowa. His research has been primarily in plasma physics in outer space environments. He has taught courses on Space Science at the University of Iowa, and has lectured to public groups.


Expert consulted with Lockheed in 1991 and worked on a computer analysis project for anomalously large transport processes in plasmas in space near the Earth.Expert consulted with attorney James Larew on a case involving illegal trespasses & confiscation of a mobile home in 1999 and in 2001.Expert consulted with a plasma group at
the Max Planck Institute
in Dusseldorf, Germany
in 1983.Expert consulted with a group analyzing
nuclear arms and disarmament at the Max Planck Institutes in Munich and Bonn, Germany in 1985.
