Lester Ingber -5- Curriculum Vitae
SCIENTIFIC PURSUITS. Lester Ingber has published over 100 papers and
books in the categories of: theoretical nuclear physics, neuroscience,
finance, optimization, combat analysis, karate, and education.
Through Lester Ingber Research (LIR) he develops and consults on
projects documented in the https://www.ingber.com/ archive. NUCLEAR
PHYSICS: From 1965-1972 he published in atomic, nuclear, astro-, and
elementary particle physics. His major work was to develop a nucleon-
nucleon interaction described by exchanged mesons, and to apply this
interaction to calculate properties of nucleon-nucleon scattering, the
deuteron, nuclear matter, and neutron stars. In 1983-1986 he used
modern methods of nonlinear functional analysis developed in the late
1970's to discover contributions induced by velocity-dependent
potentials to nuclear matter binding energies. NEUROSCIENCE: Since
1978 he has developed a statistical mechanics of neocortical
interactions applicable to a broad range of spatial and temporal
scales, using modern methods of nonlinear nonequilibrium statistical
mechanics of neocortical interactions (SMNI) to calculate brain
`observables', e.g., short-term memory and EEG analyses. His 1983
Physical Review paper was the first paper accepted on the brain in
this premier physics journal. Since 2013 he has been using XSEDE.org
resources, extending the range of SMNI from EEG to molecular
processes, and currently developing quantum algorithms that have broad
applications ranging from computational neuroscience to computational
physics to blockchains. FINANCE: Since 1980 he has developed a
statistical mechanics approach to financial markets, e.g., to
multivariable term structure and stochastic markets. His 1990
Physical Review paper was the first paper accepted on finance in this
premier physics journal. From 1997-2001, as Director R&D at DRW in
Chicago, he led a team developing multi-factor nonlinear stochastic
models of markets. From 2002-2003 he was Director R&D at DUNN Capital
Management in Stuart FL, developing risk-management algorithms. From
2011-2013 he was a Partner in Pion Capital, a hedge-fund partnership
of Caltech alumni. OPTIMIZATION/MODELING: Since 1987 he has developed
Adaptive Simulated Annealing (ASA), one of the most powerful
optimization algorithms for nonlinear and stochastic systems, working
with thousands of users. Other codes have been developed to model
multivariate nonlinear stochastic systems. In 1994-1995, as principal
investigator (PI) of an NSF Supercomputer grant, he ported his ASA and
PATHINT codes onto parallel supercomputers. COMBAT SIMULATION: From
1986-1989, as PI of an Army contract, he applied these methods of
mathematical physics, leading a team of scientists and officers to
develop mathematical comparisons of Janus computer combat simulations
with exercise data from the National Training Center (NTC), developing
a testable theory of combat successfully baselined to empirical data.
EDUCATION AND POSITIONS. He received: his diploma from Brooklyn
Technical High School in 1958; his B.S. in physics from Caltech in
1962; his Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear physics from UC San Diego in
1967, having studied at the Niels Bohr Institute in 1964, and having
consulted at RAND in 1965-1966. He was a National Science Foundation
Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley in 1967-1968 and at UC Los Angeles
in 1968-1969, an Assistant Professor in physics at SUNY at Stony Brook
from 1969-1970, and a research physicist in the Physics department and
in the Institute for Pure and Applied Physical Sciences (IPAPS) at UC

Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, CA. From 1986-1989 he was
Professor of Physics at NPS at a GS-15 Step 10 equivalent position.
In March 1988 he was officially offered a Senior Executive Service
(SES) appointment as Assistant Director of the Joint Tactical C3
Agency (JTC3A); he declined to complete his projects. From February
through June 1989 he was on extended temporary duty at US Army
Concepts Analysis Agency (CAA) in Bethesda, MD. In 1989 He won a
second NRC Senior Research Associateship, taken at the Naval Ocean
Systems Center (NOSC) in San Diego. From 1989-1990 he was Research
Professor of Mathematics at The George Washington University (GWU),
D.C. From 1989-1997, through Lester Ingber Research (LIR), he
consulted on projects in his fields of expertise. From 1997-2001 he
was Director of Research and Development at DRW, a trading firm in
Chicago, IL. From 2002-2003 he was Director R&D at DUNN Capital
Management in Stuart FL. Currently, through LIR, he conducts research
in selected interdisciplinary projects. In 2012 he was Editor-in-
Chief at Research Publisher in Santa Clara, CA for three journals and
associated e-conferences. From 2011-2013 he was a Partner in Pion
Capital, a hedge-fund partnership of Caltech alumni. From 2013- he is
PI of NSF XSEDE.org physics projects.
OTHER PURSUITS. KARATE: From 1958-1988 he founded and instructed
karate classes at: Caltech, UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles, SU New York
at Stony Brook, UC San Diego, PSI, and NPS. He has developed and
published in several textbooks techniques promoting the learning of
attentional skills in parallel with a physics approach to the learning
of traditional physical skills. He received his black belt in karate
in 1961 and became the first Westerner to receive the Instructor's
degree from the Japan Karate Association in 1968. Now he is an 8th
Dan black belt. From 1989-1991 he was Director of Scientific Studies
of the American JKA Karate Associations (AJKA). MARRIED: Since 1976
he and his spouse Louise Ingber have been partners in several
projects, including running a ballet company and karate studio
(1976-1985). He helps with cleanup for her current chocolate and
pastry business [https://creekhouse.ingber.com].

Professional Experience
NSF Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment 20 Feb 2013-
I am Principal Investigator (PI), of the National Science Foundation
(NSF) collaborative resource, The Extreme Science and Engineering
Discovery Environment (XSEDE.org), supercomputer project "Quantum
path-integral qPATHTREE and qPATHINT algorithm". These codes have
broad applications, e.g., ranging from computational neuroscience to
computational physics to blockchains.
Some similar prior work was accomplished in 1994-1995 when I was PI of
an NSF Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) Grant, "Porting Adaptive
Simulated Annealing and Path Integral Calculations to the Cray;
Parallelizing ASA and PATHINT Project" (PAPP).
Volunteers to my XSEDE.org projects may apply as described in
https://www.ingber.com/lir_computational_physics_group.html .
Work performed under a related project, "Electroencephalographic field
influence on calcium momentum waves", utilized an initial grant
spanning 20 Feb 2013 - 19 Aug 2014, which passed peer review for a
second research grant spanning 1 Jul 2014 - 30 Jun 2015. On 20 Nov
2014 a request to double the current resources passed another round of
review and was granted. In June 2015 my Renewal Request passed peer
review, extending this grant through June 2016.
Reviews of the former project are at

LIR -- Projects and Interdisciplinary Research 2003-
Through Lester Ingber Research (LIR), I continue to pursue research
and consult in several disciplines in which I have gained expertise
over several decades. The total number of publications in these
fields is over one hundred.
I continue my research in statistical mechanics of multivariate
nonlinear systems, which have included: Statistical Mechanics of
Neocortical Interactions (SMNI), Statistical Mechanics of Combat
(SMC), Statistical Mechanics of Financial Markets (SMFM), Trading in
Risk Dimensions (TRD), and Statistical Mechanical Numerical Tools such
as my optimization algorithm Adaptive Simulated Annealing (ASA), and
path-integral algorithms PATHTREE and PATHINT.
Often I collaborate via the internet on such projects. Summaries are
usually updated in https://www.ingber.com/ingber_projects.html. I
Prof. Lester Ingber lester@ingber.com www.ingber.com

continue to answer short technical queries on my publications and
codes at no charge. I still maintain and and update my ASA code,
available at no charge from my archive https://www.ingber.com
(mirrored at https://alumni.caltech.edu/~ingber). Mirrors of the ASA
code are at http://asa-caltech.sourceforge.net and
https://code.google.com/p/adaptive-simulated-annealing .
I regularly put aside time for anonymous or signed reviews, usually a
few per month. Most of my reviews for 50+ journals or scientific
agencies are of interdisciplinary subjects since my own interests have
led me through a few interdisciplinary projects. Such reviews often
have a different nature than reviews in relatively well-established
disciplines where expert opinions can be considered definitive.
I continue to educate people on the art and science of karate. I am
an 8th Dan black belt. My three karate text books and other files are
available at no charge on my internet archive.
Pion Capital -- Partner 2011-2013
Pion Capital was a hedge-fund partnership of Caltech alumni. I helped
this early-stage start-up by representing them as a Partner to vendors
to get good pricing for datafeeds and co-location of their systems,
and by building interfaces for such feeds. I benchmarked some of my
own TRD trading systems in their formats. I worked on various
administrative and R&D projects.
Research Publisher -- Editor-in-Chief 2012
I was Editor-in-Chief for Research Publisher for: Current Progress
Journal (timely topics in science), Graduate Journal of Research, and
Undergraduate Journal of Research, and associated e-conferences for
these these three journals. I recruited and set up their Editorial
Boards.
DUNN Capital Management -- Director Research & Development 2002-2003
From January 2002 to June 2003, I was Director R&D at DUNN Capital
Management, then a $billion hedge fund in Stuart FL. Their contract
included a non-compete agreement expiring 1 December 2004. I
developed state of the art copula risk-management algorithms and
worked with others to enhance and perform due diligence on trading
models.
DRW -- Director Research & Development 1997-2001
From July 1997 to December 2001, I was Director R&D at DRW, a Chicago-
based proprietary trading firm. Although all projects, initiated by
agreement with or requested by traders, were brought to proper focus
and completion, most of our products were not implemented as the

company quickly expanded five-fold. Projects included: (a) Developing
my previously published PATHINT numerical algorithms, and a novel fast
tree algorithm motivated by PATHINT, PATHTREE, to process new
multivariate nonlinear generalizations of currently used options
models. (b) Modeling indexes and options on indexes and baskets of
their components, including risk scenarios and dynamic balancing of
portfolios using my published Adaptive Simulated Annealing (ASA) code
(an importance-sampling optimization algorithm). (c) Developing an
optimized inter-minute computerized trading system, based on my
published studies using Canonical Momenta Indicators (CMI). (d)
Modeling US and German Cheapest-To-Deliver futures contracts on bonds.
(e) Modeling Eurodollar and US Treasury options. (f) Optimizing
portfolios of other traders, enhancing the effectiveness of their
trading rules. (g) Directing mathematical modeling of codes being
prepared for a commercial risk-management product, including
preparation for exotic and energy options modules. (h) Working with
other team members to obtain and integrate several data resources into
a central database accessible to traders as well as to analysts. (i)
Working with other team members to develop an electronic trading
system interface to exchanges, prototyped using Canonical Momenta
Indicators. (j) Leading, managing and administrating many projects
associated with a growing company.
LIR -- Interdisciplinary Research 1989-1997
I have made available in a public archive, Adaptive Simulated
Annealing (ASA), the optimization algorithm of choice for many complex
problems. From 1993-1996, ASA was located at
https://www.alumni.caltech.edu/~ingber/. Pointers were placed in
NETLIB and STATLIB to this location. As the archive grew, more room
and maintenance was required, and in February 1996 the site was moved
to the present ingber.com location. Pointers were placed in the
Caltech site to the present locations. Since 1992 I have helped
several thousand people with my code and papers via electronic mail,
processing hundreds of queries per year on ASA.
Through Lester Ingber Research (LIR), I further developed mathematical
and numerical algorithms for selected problems in finance, combat
analysis, and optimization, creating and testing multivariate
nonlinear models. As published in over 30 papers during this period,
projects developed decisions-aids for each of these systems that are
intuitive and graphical, but faithful to the relatively complex
multivariate nonlinear stochastic models that have established their
worth by fitting data generated by these systems. These decision aids
brought these multiple-year projects to reasonable foci, my intended
goal.
GWU -- Research Professor of Mathematics 1989-1990
I held a position as Research Professor of Mathematics at The George
Washington University (GWU) for one year before deciding to continue
my projects on a full time basis on my own.
Prof. Lester Ingber lester@ingber.com www.ingber.com
Lester Ingber -10- Curriculum Vitae
NRC-NPS -- Senior Research Associate 1989
I won a second one-year Senior Research Associateship from the
National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academies of Sciences
and Engineering, taken at Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC), San
Diego, CA, beginning 3 July 1989. My successful research proposal
was, "Statistical Mechanics of Mesoscopic Information Processing in C3
and Neocortical Systems." I accepted this award for three months to
extend my work in combat analyses.
From 1989-1991, I was a ranking member, 7th Dan (Master level) black
belt in Shotokan karate, and Director of Scientific Studies, one of
three executive directors, of the American JKA Karate Association
(AJKA), an international federation of over 100 karate organizations.
NPS -- Professor of Physics 1986-1989
On 1 August 1986, I was appointed Full Professor of Physics at the
Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA, with a joint appointment to
the C3 (Command, Control & Communications) Academic Group.
My research focused on application of statistical mechanics to large-
scale systems, specifically in neuroscience and modeling of combat-
simulation systems. This research also directly involved directing
thesis officer-students. I taught officer-students various physics
subjects, including: mechanics, statistical physics, mathematical
physics, and Combat Simulation Analysis (a physics course I created at
NPS). Class sizes ranged from 15 to 30 students. I also regularly
taught extra reading courses, composed of one or two students each, in
advanced statistical physics and advanced stochastic physics. I
served on the Physics curriculum committee and as Chairman of the
Combat Analysis Sequence, a new sequence of eight courses.
During this period, I led an excellent team of military officers and
civilians to accomplish my goals, helping most of my thesis students
to win awards for their contributions.
On 25 March 1988, after several panels of technical and managerial
review, I was officially notified that I was selected as Assistant
Director Washington Operations, Joint Tactical C3 Agency (JTC3A), a
Senior Executive Service (SES) position, and that I would have to
begin this new appointment immediately. However, I had worked for
three years to carve out an approach to realistically baseline combat
models to field data, had obtained funding for a civilian-military
team from the Deputy Under Secretary of the Army for Operations
Research, and (correctly) estimated that we needed a few more months
to bring this project to some focus, as I did at CAA from February
through June 1989 until the end of my contract with NPS.
Prof. Lester Ingber lester@ingber.com www.ingber.com
Lester Ingber -11- Curriculum Vitae
NRC-NPS -- Senior Research Associate 1985-1986
In August 1985 I received a one-year award as a Senior Research
Associate from the National Research Council of the National Academies
of Sciences and Engineering, tenured at NPS, to pursue my research
into applications of my published methods of nonlinear nonequilibrium
statistical mechanics to analyses of large-scale systems. My project
was, "Applications of Nonlinear Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics
to Options Planning."
PSI -- President 1970-1986
Physical Studies Institute (PSI) was a 501(c)(3) nonprofit scientific
and educational California corporation I founded in 1970 and kept in
operation through 1991. From 1978-1985, I developed methods of
nonlinear nonequilibrium statistical mechanics derived by mathematical
physicists in the late 1970s, and applied these methods to specific
problems in neuroscience, nuclear physics and economics. From
1980-1986, PSI was an independent agency account of the Institute for
Pure and Applied Physical Sciences (IPAPS) at UC San Diego.
In 1978, I received California Certification as an Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT), and volunteered my time in this capacity.
From 1970-1978 I personally funded and administrated the Institute for
Study of Attention (ISA) High School, a subsidiary of PSI, developing
and publishing an educational methodology emphasizing restructuring of
standard text material to enhance personal learning strengths. We
offered over 30 courses in academics, fine arts and physical
disciplines. From 1981-1986 I helped administrate another subsidiary,
Conservatory of Ballet Arts Company, consisting of over 100 students,
and an active dancing group of about 30.
From 1970-1978 I worked with other ISA teachers to prepare teaching
aids in the form of problem-texts in Algebra, Chemistry, Probability,
and Tennis. I also taught Mathematics and Physical Science at the ISA
school.
I trained in and taught karate since 1958, at Caltech, UCSD, UCB,
UCLA, SUNY SB, PSI, and NPS. I developed and published a methodology
promoting the learning of attentional skills in parallel with a
physics approach to the learning of traditional physical skills. From
1970-1988 I regularly taught karate through PSI, and published three
textbooks in this discipline.
This period was extremely creative and fulfilling, albeit also quite
challenging and difficult. I fully understood the necessity of my
commitment to ideas and people to carry out these programs. I was
able to use my trained mind and body effectively and artistically to
help thousands of people, many on an individual basis for several
years on a daily or weekly basis, reaching across many walks of life.
Many of these people trained or worked with me simply to better

themselves; many others required guidance and discipline to overcome
adversity and personal problems; some contributed their own expertise
to this organization to help others.
UCSD -- Research Associate, Physics 1980-1986
I held an honorary position at UC San Diego as a Research Associate in
the Institute for Pure and Applied Physical Sciences (IPAPS), a
research branch of the Physics Department.
UCSD -- Research Associate, Music 1972-1974
I held an honorary position as a Research Associate in the UCSD Music
Department, doing research with Pauline Oliveros creating music with
autonomic feedback.
UCSD -- Asst. Research Physicist 1970-1972
In 1970 I left my position as Assistant Professor of Physics at the
State University of New York at Stony Brook, and returned to the
University of California at San Diego (UCSD) to work with Keith
Brueckner in theoretical nuclear physics.
I ran my first marathon with Keith, along the beach, in 2 hrs 40 mins.
In 1967 I had received my Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Keith
Brueckner, the first Dean of Science and Engineering at UCSD. My
thesis was entitled "One-Meson-Exchange Potentials and Properties of
Nucleon-Nucleon Scattering and of Nuclear Matter."
Three papers from 1983-1986 calculated a contribution to the binding
energy of nuclear matter induced by nonlinearities of realistic
momentum-dependent nucleon-nucleon interactions, using methods
developed by the author in the early '60's. These effects are large
enough to possibly finally bring theory and experiment into agreement,
but a much more detailed project would be required to fully test this
conjecture.
SUNYSB -- Asst. Professor 1969-1970
I was an Assistant Professor in the Physics Department at the State
University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook, developing my thesis
work in theoretical nuclear physics. During this time I also
performed research with the Psychology Department, working with Les
Fehmi on behavioral correlates of control of EEG.
