He has put a serious effort of making an old Korean mathematician SJ Choi (~1710) officially mentioned in "CRC Combinatorial Design" edited by C. Colbourn and Z. Dinitz 2007. Choi had studied "magic squares" and their construction using some
pair of orthogonal latin squares, and wrote a book showing this pair of order 9, which is confirmed to be at least 60 years earlier than those by L. Euler. It had been considered as Euler's original contribution and the very first kind in the history of mathematics.

- We would like to formulate mathematical models of
important and frequently asked PROBLEMS in communications and signal
processing, and try to understand their fundamental nature.
- Specifically, interested in various codes and PN
sequences; Error-correcting codes, orthogonal PN codes, Spread-spectrum
Frequency-hopping codes, Radar and Sonar pulse codes, Network codes, and
the like. These are the topic of my research for the past 25 years or so.
- published over 100 techincal papers, presentations, book chapters,
etc., and all these can be found here.
