I retired from Oakland University in 2012, and on April 2, 2012 gave a Last Lecture at Meadow Brook Theatre. You can view this Last Lecture by clicking on the following figure. It lasts about 55 minutes.
Since retiring, I have written the six books shown on this page. Peggy's Discovery is a novel based on many of the ideas I discussed in my Last Lecture. In the novel, Peggy discovers a Theory of Everything. The technical details of everything in the novel are spelled out in the book, Understanding Special Relativity and Maxwell's Equations - With Implications for a Unified Field Theory. I think you will find the Preface to this book interesting. You can read it here. All of the mathematics that you need to understand this book can be found in the book, Vectors and Tensors By Example - Including Cartesian Tensors, Quaternions, and Matlab Examples. The book, Ideas that made your Smartphone - Why the patent system should be abolished, describes many of the thousands of ideas that went into making your smartphone and makes the case that the patent system should be abolished. Fourier Analysis By Example - Including Matlab Examples is my unique approach to understanding Fourier analysis. Magical Journey is a historical novel of the year 1952, seen through the eyes of thirteen-year-old Ricky, who travels with his family through all forty-eight states, giving magic shows and meeting people who make America magical.
