Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Claus D. Volko, BSc

Claus

I am an Austrian male in his thirties. My parents always wanted me to become a medical doctor. As I was a good boy, I followed their wish. Short before my thirtieth birthday, I graduated from medical school and additionally completed a Master's degree in computer science (computational intelligence). Thereupon I participated in a couple of medical research projects. The main theme of these projects was how fermented soy isoflavones could affect the steroidal hormone cascade in order to decrease stress, increase immunity and treat a wide range of conditions from infectious diseases, traumata and hypertension to severe mental disorders and cancer.

Nowadays I earn my money programming computers using Visual C#. I am doing stuff that is not so trivial and requires clever ideas. I love that. In the course of my work, I have developed algorithms for modifying geometrical objects, converting polygons to voxels, rendering surface properties and similar things. This has also resulted in scientific publications.

Wikipedia contains a page about the Hugi Magazine, which I used to edit. It was what I spent most of my sparetime on during my high school days. I am also known for a tutorial on QBasic programming which I wrote when I was 12 years old and which is still referenced at Wikiversity. In the course of these computer activities, I have been using the nickname Adok, and there are quite a few people on the Internet who have heard of Adok, although hardly any of them really know me well.

It has also been a dream of mine to make a scientific breakthrough or prove a conjecture one day. Apart from the already mentioned projects, I have spent some time thinking in particular about the P-NP problem. My most recent conclusions on this matter are written down in the paper "Second-Order P-NP Problem".

I am also a hobbyist game programmer, an author of short stories working on his first novel, a blogger and in general someone who likes to think, discuss and analyze everything in detail. Political philosophy, epistemology, the philosophy of science, differential psychology, economics, history, geography, biology, chemistry, physics and science in general are subjects of interest of mine.
