Sergei V. Chekanov (born 1969 in Minsk, Belarus) is an American computing author and physicist. [1] [2] [3] He obtained his master from Belarusian State University. He holds graduate degrees from the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands (1998). Currently he works at Argonne National Laboratory.

Professional activity

As a book author on scientific computing, he wrote two books on numerical and statistical computations based on Java and Jython programming languages. The books have been published by Springer-Verlag (2010) [4] and Springer International (2016) [5]. The main focus of the books is scientific computing based on the usage of Java scripting. According to the Springer International, the latter book was top 25% most downloadable books in 2016 and 2017 in the category "Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing". Since the publication of the book, Springer has detected 34k downloads [6] until April 2019. He is also known for promoting open-source scientific computing for science and education as a founder of the jWork.ORG community portal [7].

Currently he works in the field of particle physics at Argonne National Laboratory. He was a member of the L3(CERN)/ CERN, ZEUS/DESY and ATLAS/CERN international collaborations. According his publication records in ORCID [8], he co-authored about 200 professional papers (most of which are published in peer-reviewed journals) and other articles, including a dozen of experimental papers from the large-scale particle-colliding experiments. As a software designer, he was a primary developer of DataMelt scientific program (original name JHepWork (2005),SCaViS ) for numeric and statistical computations and several other scientific computing projects available from SourceForge.

He is a founder and designer of the HandWiki encyclopedia for researches.
