Dr. Louis Komzsik is a graduate of the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary and the Eoetvoes Lorand University, Budapest, Hungary. He has been working in the industry for more than 40 years, and is currently the chief numerical analyst in the Office of Architecture and Technology at Siemens PLM Software, Cypress, California, USA. Dr. Komzsik is the author of the NASTRAN Numerical Methods Handbook, first published by MSC in 1987. His book, The Lanczos Method, published by SIAM, has also been translated into Japanese, Korean, and Hungarian. His book, Computational Techniques of Finite Element Analysis, published by CRC Press, is in its second print, and his Approximation Techniques for Engineers was published by Taylor and Francis in 2006. He is also the coauthor of the book Computational Techniques of Rotor Dynamics with the Finite Element Method, published by Taylor and Francis in 2012.
