Elemer Elad Rosinger, Ph.D.

Elemer E. Rosinger is Emeritus Professor of pure and applied mathematics at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, where he has worked for thirty years. He received his D.Sc. in mathematics from the University of Bucharest, Romania, and has held permanent or visiting positions at several dozen universities and research institutes on five continents—including East and West Europe, the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Israel.

Professor Rosinger originated and first developed two major nonlinear mathematical theories and five major directions or disciplines in modern nonlinear mathematics. These have been critically important in cutting-edge scientific and technological applications, including quantum physics, optimization, multiple-criteria decision making, computer science, and category theory. He has collaborated in many industrial, economic, management, environmental and social projects for private and governmental organizations in Europe, the USA, South Africa, and elsewhere.

Professor Rosinger has authored eleven books of his own original research in pure and applied mathematics, as well as more than forty research papers published by leading journals and scientific book publishers. Most recently, he has published three books on philosophy, mainly pertaining to ontology, and, since his retirement in 2002, he has published over sixty articles electronically at the arXiv of Cornell University, USA. In addition to mathematics and its applications, he has been involved in a range of pursuits, among them metaphysics, philosophy, history, political science, economics, music, art and literature.

The South African National Research Foundation (NRF) has conferred upon Dr. Rosinger the top A-level ranking as research scientist, a peer-evaluation ranking given only to world leaders in their specific fields of science. In 2000 he was awarded the Bill Venter Literary Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to research published in book form by university personnel in South Africa. Dr. Rosinger was also the recipient of the Gold Medal of the South African Mathematical Society and the Chancellor’s Award of the University of Pretoria.
