The author and creator of the Koester Equation is Stefan Koester. Stefan discovered the concept, its usefulness, and its validity at the age of 16. To help him validate the equation and its methods, professors from all around the country help. This includes Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, Penn State, Johns Hopkins, UC Berkeley, Arizona State University, and the University of Arizona. Stefan is always looking for new applications and other ways of looking at the equation, and would like to discuss anything pertaining to this at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
