Dear Math Group, I wish to use this opportunity to ask you if some of you may propose me an EMPLOYMENT in the area of symbolic/numeric computations and/or their applications in Applied/Pure Mathematics, Mechanics, Hydrodynamics, Computational Physics or Engineering. I would like to get an appointment preferably related to using/extending Mathematica, Maple or Reduce system in business, research or educational purposes. I would be immensely grateful to colleagues for information about possible vacancies, opening positions, any useful advice or for kind assistance. Some information about me. My name is Alexander Urintsev. I am 47 years old and presently work as a Senior Research Associate at an International Research Center of Nuclear Physics, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). I am engaged in developing data-analysis systems and processing the experimental High Energy Physics data by means of various statistical and numerical programs and some sorts of computer graphics. During three last years I extensively used in my daily work the wonderful graphical, numerical and symbolic capabilities of the Mathematica package and the Maple package as well. But now I have rather bad perspectives to continue my work in Russia, as the conditions for scientific work or other serious professional activity in the field of fundamental or applied research are degrading permanently, and there is no hope that the situation will be improved in the nearest future. I would be very grateful to you if you could find an opportunity to answer me if there is a possibility for me to work at your firm/institution on any basis (contract, post-doc etc.). It would be very nice for me to be employed for permanent work (or for several years) to develop new application areas for Mathematica or Maple, or carry out research/business investigations in the field of symbolic/numeric computation, Applied/Pure Mathematics, Mechanics, Hydrodynamics or Physics working as a scientific programmer, researcher or software engineer. Also, I could work as a teacher of Computer Science, Mathematics, Mechanics or Hydrodynamics having an ample experience in teaching undergraduates at the Rostov State University (Rostov-on-Don, Russia). Therefore I enclose here some additional materials pertaining to my request: Resume, List of Publications and two letters of recommendation. I would like to inform you that I have got an experience in Applied Mathematics, Mechanics and Computer Science during 24 years of work as a researcher at several research institutions. My work is connected with the various problems of numerical and symbolic analysis. I received my Ph.D. in Mechanics of Fluids, Gas and Plasma in 1980. During a long period of time I worked with problems of hydrodynamic stability and appearance of turbulence and acquired an experience in solving the Navier-Stokes equations on computers. I am familiar with modern software, libraries of scientific computer programs such as NAG Fortran Library, CERN Program Library, IBM SSP, Harwell Subroutine Library and with a wide range of computers. Besides I possess the 11-years experience in teaching students at the Mechanical- Mathematical Department of the Rostov State University, where I lectured on Programming in Computer Algebra Systems, Computational and Applied Mathematics, Analytical Mechanics and Theoretical Hydrodynamics. Earlier, during some 9 years, I had used quite actively and with some success the computer algebra system REDUCE, based on LISP, with a research purposes and to teach students of the University to Pure and Applied Mathematics, Mechanics and Hydrodynamics. As a result, I have published several scientific papers concerning the application of symbolic computations in magnetostatic optics of charged particle. The Institute, where I work, has bought Mathematica and Maple, and I have used since 1991 these splendid systems: at first I dealt with the Mathematica Version 1.2 and later with Maple V and the Mathematica Version 2.0. My scientific work supported by Mathematica and Maple was a great success and now, as I believe, I am quite experienced in the Mathematica and Maple programming. Particularly, thanks to Mathematica and Maple I succeeded in making a good mathematical model of the ununiform 3-dimensional magnetic field inside the spectrometer with a vertex detector. It was created at the JINR together with the Institute of High Energy Physics (Serpukhov) to solve some urgent and important problems of Particle Physics. Also, I would like to mention that by means of Mathematica and Maple I has successfully investigated the dynamics of the longitudinal motion of charged particles in the TRITRON type accelerator. The fulfilment of these and other scientific tasks resulted in new Mathematica packages pertaining to Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics. Apparently, these packages may happen to be of more significance in applications. Mark Moline, the MathSource Administrator of Wolfram Research, helped me to install in the MathSource Collection at Wolfram Research these 7 packages (please see the List of Publication, ref. [38 - 44]). As I hope, the List of Publications (enclosed) will allow you to appreciate my experience in Applied/Computational Mathematics and programming in the field of symbolic/numerical computation. In conclusion of my letter I would like to inform you that during 7 months I am a member of MathGroup and a member of the electronic teleconference sci.math.symbolic as well. It allows me to maintain relations with the specialists in the field of symbolic computation over the world. It should be noticed that this intercourse with developers of computer algebra systems helped me to improve essentially my style and level of programming in this area. If you should require additional information about me: others letters of recommendation, degrees copies, detailed CV, information regarding my work experience, education or personal situation, I would be happy to provide it. Dear Colleague, I look forward to your reply and wish to thank you in advance. I would appreciate any help. Thank you for your time.

We have carried out joint scientific investigations. >From 1991 to 1992 Dr. Alexander Urintsev cooperated with me and other members of the group lead by me on a project of the high-current cyclotron installation of the TRITRON type. In theoretical plan we considered a possibility to apply such kind of accelerators to get the high-current beams of deutrons with energies sufficient for the purposes of the MINGEN project aiming at creating a powerful neutron source. When working on the project as a scientific programmer and researcher Dr. Urintsev carried out symbolic and numerical calculations using the computer algebra system Mathematica, FORTRAN 77 and a series of scientific programs >from CERN Program Library: starting from formulae he successfully realized the mathematical model of the dynamics of the longitudinal motion of charged particle in the TRITRON type accelerator. In studying various aspects of this problem he has shown the independence in realization of the part of scientific project entrusted to him, demonstrated deep knowledge of mathematics, numerical and symbolic algorithms, tricky methods of programming, skilfully used splendid analytical and graphical capabilities of the Mathematica system to provide considerable success in work of the group on the given project. That is why I greatly appreciate the scientific activities of Dr. Alexander Urintsev in our collaboration and believe that he is able to solve involved scientific problems connected with a qualified application of Computational Mathematics and advanced computer systems in the fundamental and applied research. I believe that Dr. Urintsev may be recommended for work at research institutes, scientific centers, laboratories and also in firms producing sophisticated, applied and system's software.

During 11 years working as a senior research associate at the Research Institute of Mechanics and Applied Mathematics of the Rostov State University he successfully combined research with teaching at the Mechanical- Mathematical Department of the University where I have the honour to be the Dean. During these years Dr. Urintsev worked as an Associate Professor at the Computational Mathematics Chair and at the Chair of Functions and Functional Analysis Theory of the Mechanical-Mathematical Department of the University. He lectured special courses in the field of computational mathematics such as "Solving boundary value problem on computer", led seminars, classes on calculation methods, probability theory and mathematical statistics, programming in computer algebra systems for students of the Mechanical- Mathematical Department, Applied Mathematics Department, Economics and Philosophy Department at the Rostov State University, supervised students' practice at the University Computing Center and graduates' practice. In fact, he annually supervised and reviewed diploma thesis of the students specialized at the Computational Mathematics Chair and at the Theoretical Hydroaerodynamics Chair. This pedagogical activity took 240 hours per year. In addition, Dr. Urintsev lectured on analytical geometry at the Regional Refreshment Courses for technical college teachers. For a long period of time he took part in the activity of the editorial board of the journal "News of Northern Caucasus Research Center of Higher School" (Rostov-on-Don) as a reviewer of the papers in the field of applied mathematics and hydrodynamics. Dr. Urintsev is a highly qualified specialist in developing and using numerical and symbolic algorithms and programs, as well as computer applications for solving problems of applied mathematics and mechanics. Dr. Urintsev is the author (or a coauthor) of about 40 scientific publications. He pays a lot of time and energy to create the high quality computer programs, applies such programming languages as FORTRAN 77, C, Lisp and also computer algebra, libraries of scientific subroutines (CERN Program Library, IBM SSP, NAG FORTRAN Library, CPC Program Library), computer graphics in the scientific and applied researches. Dr. Urintsev is a persuaded supporter and a skilful popularizer of wide use of such computer algebra systems as Mathematica, Maple and REDUCE both for research and teaching of mathematics, mechanics and physics at Higher School. In 1988 the leadership of the Department asked him to lecture the term course under the title "Programming in REDUCE System" because of possible application prospects of similar computer systems possessing artificial intellect traits. The lectures were prepared at high level and were accompanied by a great quantity of well selected examples. Dr. Urintsev deserves respect and prestige at the University as a researcher and teacher. The colleagues have not forgotten him, though he has not been working for several years there being invited to work at the International Research Center of Nuclear Physics, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, situated in Dubna (Moscow Region). In conclusion, I would like to recommend Dr. Urintsev as a highly qualified specialist and teacher for work at the universities, colleges, research institutes, computing centers and software firms.
