"This is something that's been discovered that people should pay attention to if they are trying to understand the heart," said Michael Shlesinger, a physicist at the Office of Naval Research in Arlington, VA. In addition to helping scientists understand how the heart adjusts its beats, the new mathematical description of the heartbeat may give doctors a better way to tell a sick heart from a healthy one. Although many people may think of the heart as having a steady beat, the amount of time between beats varies slightly, even when a person isn't changing his level of activity.

"The molecules in explosives, mostly nitrogen based, have rotational and vibrational characteristics that show up in the terahertz region," says Michael Shlesinger, a division director with the Office of Naval Research (ONR), which together with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is spending US $30 million a year on counter-IED R&D.
"The unsolved problem is the scan rate, when the explosives are well-hidden," Shlesinger says.

William Landay III and ONR honored Dr. Michael F. Shlesinger as the 2006 recipient.
Shlesinger, of the Office of Naval Research's Physical Sciences Division, was recognized for being a strong force in fostering research in nonlinear dynamics with applications to ship-borne crane control; jet engine flameout prevention; secure communications; new magnetic, electric, and electromagnetic sensors for force protection; high-power laser arrays for communications, and chaotic logic gate arrays for a novel computing paradigm.Shlesinger began his career at the Office of Naval Research when he joined the ONR Physics Division in 1983.In 1986 he became the division's director.He later created the division's nonlinear dynamics program and has co-managed joint ONR programs in oceanography, mathematics, engineering, and neuroscience.He became ONR's chief scientist for nonlinear science in 1995.At present, Shlesinger is the research division director in the Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Department where he still manages the nonlinear dynamics program and is also co-manager of ONR's counter-IED program.

2243 rd Meeting Abstract
Michael Shlesinger
About the Author:
Beginning in late 2008, Michael Shlesinger will hold the Kinnear Chair in Science at the US Naval Academy. At the Office of Naval Research, he is the Research Division Director in the Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Department. He is also the Program Manager for the Counter-IED basic research program and ONR's Chief Scientist for Nonlinear Science. He joined ONR in 1983 and became a member of the Senior Executive Service in 1987.
He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and has published about 200 scientific papers on topics in stochastic processes, glassy materials, proteins, neurons, and nonlinear dynamics. He is a Divisional Associate Editor of the Physical Review Letters. He received ONR's 2006 Saalfeld Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement in Science, the federal government's Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Senior Professionals in 2004, U. Maryland's Distinguished Postdoc Alum award in 2004, the Navy Superior Civilian Service Award in 1991 and was the Regents' Lecturer at UCSD in 1994, and the Michelson Lecturer at the USNA in 1992. His Ph. D., in Physics, is from the U. of Rochester in 1975, and he holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from SUNY Stony Brook in 1970.
