<p><a class="wiki" href="http://www.numericalmethod.com/trac/numericalmethod/wiki/TeamMembers/HaksunLi">Dr. Haksun Li</a> is a computer scientist by training and has a strong background in mathematics (B.S., M.S. in Mathematics from <a class="ext-link" href="http://www.math.uchicago.edu/"><span class="icon">​</span>the University of Chicago</a>, M.S., PhD. in Computer Science &amp; Engineering from <a class="ext-link" href="http://www.eecs.umich.edu/eecs/research/area.html?r_id=2"><span class="icon">​</span>the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor</a>). During his career as a quantitative trader/analyst in investment banks, he came across with a lot of mathematics software. The frustration was that the libraries/tools are written in ancient and arcane languages. Building a homogeneous system from these hybrid libraries to do, e.g., algorithmic trading, is challenging. Moreover, understanding the source code is often very difficult let alone modifying it. Finally, one day, reading the FORTRAN/C version of <a title="Algorithm AS 288" href="http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/apstat/288">ALGORITHM AS 288</a> has convinced Haksun that the world will benefit from having one common, standard and supported mathematics library in modern languages, hence the birth of Numerical Method Inc.</p>
<p>In 2010, Dr. Haksun Li, together with <a class="wiki" href="http://www.numericalmethod.com/trac/numericalmethod/wiki/TeamMembers/KenYiu">Dr. Ken Yiu</a> and <a class="wiki" href="http://www.numericalmethod.com/trac/numericalmethod/wiki/TeamMembers/KevinSun">Dr. Kevin Sun</a>, founded Numerical Method Inc. Haksun named the software <a title="SuanShu" href="http://numericalmethod.com/up/suanshu/">SuanShu</a> after one of the earliest known Chinese mathematical treatises, <a class="ext-link" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Su%C3%A0n_sh%C3%B9_sh%C5%AB"><span class="icon">​</span>算数书</a>. The company is now a diversified team that consists of computer scientists, statisticians, applied mathematicians, etc. Many of our team members hold doctorate degrees and professorship from renowned universities.</p>
