    • From :
      • Franz F. Selig was born in Vienna, Austria. Originally a mathematician (Ph.D. from the University of Vienna, research and teaching at the Technical University of Vienna), he joined Mobil's Research and Development Corporation in Dallas, Texas, where he contributed to the better understanding of fluid flow and acoustic wave propagation in porous media. His scientific work required the use of analog and digital computers and was published in various engineering and geophysical/ geological journals. After several management positions in Mobil's international affiliates in Europe he returned to New York into a position responsible for the effective use of computers for technical/scientific and commercial applications on a worldwide basis. He retired from Mobil in 1989. He is a long-time member of the Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik (GAMM) and is active in a number of professional organizations.

      • Franz Selig. Techniques for using pulsed neutron sources in oilwell logging have recently received considerable attention at the Socony Mobil Field Research Laboratory. W. R. Mills (Ph.D., California Institute of Technology, 1955), L. S. Allen (M.S., Southern Methodist University, 1961), and R. L. Caldwell (Ph.D., University of Missouri, 1949) have provided the neutron physics research in this effort, Caldwell being Supervisor of the Nuclear Physics and Well Logging Section. Franz Selig (Ph.D., University of Vienna), Supervisor of Applied Mathematics, has provided the necessary mathematical support.
