“World Youngsters Athletics Championship of 1986”
(ÐÅÐ’86), next for the Committee Against Violence in
Fields of Sports, and last as in charge of the Computer
Department of ÅÊÁÅ, this belonging to the “Olympic
Sports Center of Athens” (ÏÁÊÁ).
1991 - 1992 Became a Member of the Scientific Council of ÅÊÁÅ.
For my authoring and scientific work, during those years,
I was congratulated, in written, by the top managers of
ÏÁÊÁ and ÅÊÁÅ (when I decided to quit my job, in order
to develop a corner of new technology and related research).
1987 - 1988 Worked on a project of ÊÏÅÁÔ (Central Organizational
Committee Seeking for Children Talented in Sports),
under the “General Secretariat of Sports” (ÃÃÁ).
Height, weight, and tested performances of 150,000
children, at the age of 8, were input as data, processed,
and co-evaluated by a program of mine. That task was
completed in less than 9 weeks, with absolute success.
1985 - 1986 One year in the Information Center of the Ministry of
Economics (in the preparation of input data).
1985 EDP Manager and member of “R&D Hellas” (software).

Accomplishments / Awards
Oct. 2000 - Sept. 2002 Invented the Binary Oblong Random-Number series of
generators (the BORN engines), and presented an original
Encryption/Decryption Program, to a group of officers,
appointed by the Greek Army, to evaluate the proposed
method for implementation. I was notified, afterwards, that
my algorithm had passed the randomness tests of the Army,
and also those of the Defense-Systems Dep. of Intracom sa.
1994 - 1995 My proof of “The Two Squares Theorem” (number theory)
was published in a special Geometry-Analysis-Mechanics
(GAM) World Scientific volume, dedicated to Archimedes.
1988 Awarded by the Greek Operational Researchers Union,
and chosen to represent Greece, in the international
congress, which is organized by IFORS every 3 years.
The problem of Locating an Obnoxious Facility (in terms
of Location Theory) had been posed by Dr. J. Karkazis,
professor of mathematics in the Aegean University, and
was solved through our collaboration, in a series of three
papers, ending with the one presented in Buenos Ayres.
Sept. 2004 - to date Developping automatic trading systems specifically adjusted
to the foreign exchange market (FOREX).
Apr. 2001 - to date Working, in private, on a mathematical approach to what is,
apparently, contradicting the big-bang cosmology, i.e. various
evidence suggesting that the expansion of the universe is now
accelerating.This theoretical piece of research, having already
been completed, proves that most observations comply with a
relativistic steady-state model, according to which, a universal
force of fundamental nature acts exclusively on distant matter,
and has no effect on the course, or the intensity, of pure light.
Apr. 1999 - May 1999 Designed a partial model describing the one most complex
of all regular polyhedral spaces, as a construction consisting
of 690 curved segments and 222 nodes (it’s on my website).
Jan. 1999 - Mar. 1999 Extended the notion of a regular hyper-polyhedron to
that of a regular polyhedral space, thus prolonging the
initial list of six (6) finite (since being convex) spaces,
by 5 infinite ones, of which only 1 is Euclidean.
July 1998 - Dec. 1998 Conceived geometrically and designed the "dual" to the
following space frame, formally resembling to a regular
dodecahedron, and consisting of 600 composite parts of
only 15 types.
Dec. 1996 - July 1998 Invented a mathematical model and designed a complex
spatial frame, made of 720 curved, cylindrical segments.
This looked like a spherical sculpture corresponding to the
Euclidean translation of a hyper-spherical frame.
Nov. 1996 Proved the existence of 6 regular 4-d hyper-polyhedrons,
and of at least two, in each dimension beyond the 4th._
