Short Bio:

Mike Mikalajunas has a degree in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. He has taken part in a number of research projects with various faculty members from different departments in the same University where he graduated from. This would include a long term flight simulation project in conjunction with the department of Mechanical Engineering and Canadian Aviation Electronics (CAE). Also included are some software development work related to a program called AUTO, "Continuation and Bifurcation Problems in Ordinary Differential Equations" http://indy.cs.concordia.ca/auto/ in conjunction with the department of Computer Science. Other professional activities going back as far as in the mid 80's included taking part with Dr. Robert Carbone for the launching of a new software consulting company that would provide much greater software accessibility on the PC for large corporations as an alternative to the use of very expensive mainframe computer systems. More information can be obtained by going to http://futurcast.com/ where many of his programs are still being used in large corporations some of which with a total revenue far exceeding $100 Million. They would include Astra Zeneca, Bayer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bray Valve & Controls, Bway Aerosol division, Campbell Soup, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Glaxo-Egypt, Honeywell, John Crane, Lever Ponds, Merck Frost, Novartis International, Ortho Pharmaceuticals, Roche, Sanofi Aventis, Solvay, Unilever, Upsher-Smith, and Worthington Industries. Because of his extensive background in C++ and Oracle, Mike Mikalajunas has for many years been assigned to maintaining and supporting the company's own leading Futurcast statistical software package within the giant pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim. Under a special license agreement he would be responsible in part for running the entire sales forecasting and assumption reporting software on a monthly basis for the international division of Boehringer Ingelheim that provide services to over 100 countries from around the world in order to meet each of the countries own total manufacturing process requirements. At the same time while all of these various projects were going on, Mike Mikalajunas was also very extensively involved in the search for some form of a unified theory of analytical integration that would be driven entirely by computation only. His preliminary results in the form of a universal computational algorithm were made public between 1981 and 1983 to various professional conferences involving three of the largest mathematical societies in the world, (1) "New algorithm for integrating PDEs" (SIAM) 1981 Fall Meeting, Cincinnati Ohio (2) "Representing a PDE in terms of an infinite variety of integrable and non-integrable systems of ODEs" Abstracts of the American Math Society Vol. 4, Number 5, 87th summer meeting, Albany NY (1983) and (3) "On the use of Multivariate Polynomials for integrating ODEs" Mathematical Association of America (MAA) NY State Mathematical Assoc. of Two Year Colleges, Seaway Section, Spring 1983, Utica NY. In 2015, the new computational algorithm received general acceptance for presentation at 2 major International Conferences on Computational Methods in Auckland New Zealand (ICCM2015) and at Berkeley University (ICCM2016). This was followed by another one in Melbourne Australia "13th International Conference on the Mechanical Behavior of Materials, June 2019". Many Universities have also expressed a great deal of interest for the presentation of his work at one of their regular internal seminars in Engineering and Mathematics. These included from the department of Mechanical Engineering, Carleton University, the University of California at Davis and the University of Memphis. Also included, the Purdue School of Engineering & Technology in Indianapolis, the School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University and finally, the department of Mathematics at the City University of New York. This has also attracted some degree of interest from NASA which as a result of having attended one of their highly advanced Physics Workshop "NASA Fundamental Physics Workshop April, 2018, La Jolla, CA", Mike Mikalajunas was given the opportunity to make a presentation at their Washington DC headquarters on the use of his own unique computational algorithm for attempting to resolve many of the various cases of the Navier-Stokes equations in more generalized analytical form, “A method of differential analysis for solving the Navier-Stokes equations in more generalized form, NASA Headquarters, June 2018, Washington DC"
