Key People

University of Minnesota,
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Without these kindly souls, this site would come to a crashing halt. Or it would at least be something of a mess. ;-)


 red bullet Professor Matthew T. O'Keefe
My graduate advisor, and an expert in parallel computing. Also an expert at keeping a large band of mad hackers happy and productive. The source from whence hardware flows. :-)

 red bullet Professor Anand Gopinath
Our electromagnetics guru. Dr. Gopinath has a tendency to tell me what coding error I must have made without ever having seen the code, but only having heard a description of the results. This kind of insight is why students will always need good professors!

 red bullet J-D Harrington harrington@borg.umn.edu
Graphical formats expert and wizard of visual things. The fact that these pages look good is largely due to J-D's work and influence. Among other things, he made all logos and backgrounds you see here and gives me html lessons.

 red bullet Russell Cattelan and the borg group
The large band of mad hackers mentioned earlier. Russell keeps our rapidly mushrooming network beaten into some sort of order.

 red bullet Paul Hayes hayes@borg.umn.edu
None of this whole project would ever have gotten started without Paul and his vast and varied expertise. Paul is one of those people who seems to know how to do just about everything, and his enthusiasm for time-domain simulation has infected all the rest of us.

 red bullet Laurie E. Miller (your humble maintainer) lemiller@borg.umn.edu
OK, it probably wouldn't have gotten started without me either. If I hadn't been such an utter newbie back in the beginning and hadn't discovered such bizarre ways to make a mess of FDTD, we would never have gotten serious about a library of toycodes or about publishing heavily-commented source code.
            --I know why they call it the "Yee" algorithm. When I mess it up, I look at the results and go, "YeeEEee!"  ;-)
