Dr Joseph Nebus is a more verbose mathematician than the evidence here demonstrates.

He’s started a blog in which he means to be funny on purpose.

His Twitter account is @Nebusj.

He is coauthor, with Professor Chjan Lim, of Vorticity, Statistical Mechanics, and Monte Carlo Simulation, which guides readers into statistical mechanics and inviscid fluid flow problems in a way which Vicentin D Radulescu described as “a convincing invitation to modern mathematical concepts and new techniques [ … ] useful and attractive to graduate students and teachers in this active field.” A second edition of this book is in process.

He is also coauthor, with Professor Lim and with Dr Xueru Ding, of Vortex Dynamics, Statistical Mechanics, and Planetary Atmospheres, which focuses on the study of planetary atmospheres, particularly those of Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune, with tools built on the methods described above.

He’s a terrible ham radio operator who’s managed at times to achieve nearly three words per minute in transcribing Morse Code, if he’s allowed to go back and fill in obvious mistakes, like the letters missing from “M-L-BU C-L- – – – – -A”.

He has taught at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (as graduate student), at the College of Saint Rose (in Albany, New York), Ocean County College (in Toms River, New Jersey) and the National University of Singapore.

He reads the comic strip Mark Trail much more faithfully than any of his friends do, or advise.

He was a finalist for the Robert Benchley Society Award for Humor one year, and would have given it a fresh try afterwards except they keep changing the submission deadlines from under him.

He feels there is a distinct charm and dignity added to mathematics papers if their titles begin with “On”.

The inspiration for this blog was a gift from Aunt Evelyn, an “irrational watch” where symbols like e and π give approximations to the hours, and her claim that she didn’t know what any of the symbols meant. Provided my prose style holds out, she will.
