## Qutaibeh Katatbeh

Qutaibeh Katatbeh has used *Mathematica* extensively in his research areas of spectral theory, spectral bounds for Schrödinger operators, and eigenvalue problems, and in the areas of computational and mathematical physics. He has used *Mathematica* in his teaching projects and in the research for most of his publications. He established a *Mathematica* training center in the Middle East, supported by the International Bank, at Jordan University of Science and Technology.

Katatbeh was appointed as a research professor in the department of mathematics and statistics at Concordia University in 2003, and promoted to assistant professor in 2004. Currently he is an assistant professor at Jordan University of Science and Technology. He teaches a wide range of topics, including numerical analysis, partial differential equations, differential equations, functional analysis, quantum mechanics, and special functions. In addition to his busy class schedule, Katatbeh works with graduate students to generate a *Mathematica* database for mathematical materials, an e-learning project. He is also a member of a supervisory committee for PhD students modeling soil contamination at Concordia University, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He is the coauthor of a book on integral equations.
