John G. Fletcher
I have set up an author page on Google Scholar for my stepfather, John G. Fletcher, who died last year. He worked at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) from 1962 until he retired in 1993. Although he had a PhD in Physics from Princeton (with a thesis on general relativity), at LLNL he soon moved to the computation department and most of his papers are in the field of Computer Science. I used the Google Scholar clustering algorithm to generate the list of his papers. It didn't work too well in his case, a fair number of the papers suggested obviously weren't by him and some papers were missed. I removed the interlopers and added a couple of early general relativity papers. However there may still be errors.
