I am now retired but the website for my Fall '09 Math 251, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations,
with all the supplementary material is still available.

My youngest daughter Dana Dachman-Soled finished her PhD in computer science at Columbia University and was a post-doc at Microsoft Research New England in 2011 - 2013.
In the Fall of 2013 she joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, as an assistant professor. Her research interests, involving the theoretical foundations of cryptography and computational learning theory, are now focused on cybersecurity in conjunction with UMIACS (University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies) and MC2 ( Maryland Cybersecurity Center). Among her invited talks are one at the China Theory Week 2010 conference and more recently one at Arizona State University. And she taught Cryptography Against Physical Attacks in the Fall 2013 semester, Introduction to Cryptology in the Spring 2014 semester, and Digital Logic in the Fall 2014 semester.

I am one of the 1,684 Jews who were saved from the Holocaust by Rudolf Kasztner's Train (the original passenger list).
My family also received an unauthorized Salvadoran citizenship certificate from George Mandel-Mantello
as an escape from the Holocaust but did not use it.

I am an ardent supporter of civil rights, diversity and justice in the workplace. Some relevant statutes are discussed here. Complaints of violations of the Federal statutes can be filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Charges filed with the the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission may be simultaneously filed with the EEOC. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) wishes to secure justice and fair treatment for all persons and in particular to stop the defamation of the Jewish people.

And, I am generally interested in social issues; eg, the forces that enable some of our public universities to pay high salaries to their administrators ( another source ; or, how much compensation is too much for a public university's administrator? Of course, some university presidents do act in concert with their lofty positions, e.g. see Chronicle , Washington Post , Seattle Times and New York Times . Perhaps the IRS should reconsider the tax exempt status of a public institution that pays its administrators an unreasonable salary. A source of information about the IRS's role in determining tax exempt status is available here.

I served as Mathematics Coordinator for Commonwealth Campus faculty and as Math Division Head in the Commonwealth College. Information that may be of interest to Mathematics Faculty at the new colleges is available at this location.

Research Interests: Complex Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Computer Algebra
