David Yevick, P. Eng. (Ontario) is Professor of Physics at the University of Waterloo, Canada. He received his A.B. and Ph.D. degrees respectively from Harvard and Princeton Universities in Physics (1973) and Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics (1977). Dr. Yevick is a leading scientist in the numerical simulation of components and materials for optical communication systems, in particular electric field propagation in guided-wave optics, optical processes in semiconductors, and communication system modeling. Dr. Yevick is a fellow of the APS, OSA and IEEE. Hannah Yevick holds a Ph.D. in Biological Physics from the Curie Institute in Paris as well as a M.A. from Columbia University and, a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in Physics. Her experience with the Physics GRE and graduate comprehensive exams has enhanced the text.
