Further fields of interests: Economics, Mathematical Economics, Theory of Decisions with Multiple Objectives,

Main skills in computer Programming for PC's and mainframes:

  • Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista;
  • C,C++ (Borland Builder), Pascal (Borland Delphi), Visual Basic and VBA (for MS Office programming);
  • For mainframes, SUN-clusters and supercomputers CRAY: PL/I, Fortran or ANSI C with MPI and OpenMP high performance computing technologies.

Professional Background

30+ years of research and software development in

  • Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, University College of Nyíregzhíza (2009- to date)
  • Faculty of Informatics, Debrecen University, Hungary (1991-2009)
  • Institute of Mathematics, Academy of Sciences of the Kirghiz Republic (1976-1991)
  • Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Kossuth University of Debrecen, Hungary (from 1991- 2009).
  • Software company Kem BT (1991-1995, Debrecen, Hungary)
  • Software company Optimum 95 Bt (1995-date, Debrecen, Hungary)
  • Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre, Edinburgh University, Scotland (research visitor, Spring-Summer, 2002)

I have more than 35 publications and participated in 15+ international congresses, conferences and symposiums. I have developed many programs for use on microcomputers and for mainframes. One of them, a program package GULF (developed in cooperation with Prof. David J.Pannell, University of Western Australia) for solving linear and linear-fractional programming problems was tested in the European Journal of Operational Research (Prof. Hervé Thiriez, Editor of OR-Software Section), see Hervé Thiriez : GULF (version 2.2). in EJOR, 67 (1993) pp.295-296.

The newest version of my package WinGULF was re-coded in Borland C++ Builder and ANSI C and then was parallelized and adapted to supercomputer CRAY T3E, Edinburgh University, Parallel Computing Centre.

I have participated in many projects as system analyst and/or software developer. The most important of them are:

  • Mathematical modelling and optimization of the operation of the sugar industry in Kirghiz Republic. (Customer: State Planning Committee of USSR and Agricultural Ministry of Kirghiz SSR; Environment: IBM-370 compatible mainframe computers, PL/I programming language and DBMS INES).
  • Mathematical modelling and optimization of the operation of a tobacco factory in Kirghiz Republic (Customer: The 1st Tobacco Factory of Frunze; Environment: IBM PC AT DOS-computer with DBMS Clipper).
  • Mathematical simulation and planning of the operation of a machine-building plant in Hungary (Customer: Hajdúsági Iparmüvek RT; Environment: VAX-based local area network with MAGIC 4GL system).
  • Mathematical simulation and planning of the operation of public transport in county Kunság (Customer: Kunság Volan RT; Environment: VAX-based local area network with MAGIC 4GL system).
  • Database management program package for the local government of Debrecen city (Customer: local government of Debrecen city, Hungary; Environment : IBM PC+MS Windows NT based local area network, MS SQL Server, ODBC, BDE, Borland Delphi).
  • Logistic program package for educational purposes (University College of Nyíregyháza, Hungary, Borland Delphi).
