Retired professor of mathematics from a branch of a state university. I've published some research but nothing of any real consequence. I continue to explore certain elementary dynamical systems in the complex plane because it's enjoyable to do so.
My icon is a quantum bug, a realization of life in those extremes. Note that this bug is following a larger bug like itself. This image, magnified about a thousand times, arose unexpectedly from a BASIC program I wrote involving infinite compositions.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
