Dr. Clay M. Thompson, founder Mathematical Engineering

Mathematical Engineering™ was founded by Dr. Clay M. Thompson to provide mathematics engineering consulting services and custom software development.

With a Master’s degree in engineering from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Thompson is one of the world’s foremost MATLAB programmers. He worked at The MathWorks for 9 years developing toolboxes and writing thousands of m-files. He was a MATLAB toolbox author (creating the Image Processing Toolbox as well as improving the Control Toolbox) and was the lead language designer for MATLAB 5.0 (the version of MATLAB that introduced multi-dimensional arrays, cell arrays, and MATLAB objects).

In 1999, he left The MathWorks and founded Creative Creek, LLC to provide MATLAB consulting services and to develop and market his MathU™ calculators for Palm OS. Since then, the MathU™ product line has grown to include professional calculator software for iPhone and iOS. Mathematical Engineering™ is the consulting and software development division of Creative Creek™.

Thompson has been developing software for more than 30 years. Trained as an engineer, with an MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and the MIT AI lab, he frequently found it necessary to create his own software solutions to engineering problems. A conscientious developer with a passion for well-crafted products and solutions, Thompson extensively tests his applications before releasing them. Thompson has experience with many different operating systems and languages and can create end-to-end solutions for his clients.
