Mathematician and software developer, outstanding member of the Institute, at present honorary member.
He activated in the software field at the Institute for Computing Technique (Institutul pentru Tehnica de Calcul – ITC). He is the author of some well appreciated manuals of programming (in C, C++, C#, etc).
He is coauthor of the first manuals of computer science in Romania (1971), which were used several years at the four highschools founded in Romania (in Bucharest, Iaşi, Cluj-Napoca and Timişoara). He was (together with dr. Emil Munteanu, dr. Teodor Rus, Vasile Listeş and Teodor Vuşcan) in the team of researchers detached to teach computer science at the newly founded highschool from Cluj-Napoca.
In 1971, after the initiative and efforts of acad. Grigore Moisil and acad. Tiberiu Popoviciu, in Romania were founded the first four highschools on Computer Science (in Bucharest, Iaşi, Cluj-Napoca and Timişoara). As noted on the history page of the “Tiberiu Popoviciu” Highschool for Computer Science from Cluj-Napoca, Liviu Negrescu, together with dr. Emil Munteanu, dr. Teodor Rus, Vasile Listeş and Teodor Vuşcan, have elaborated the first manuals in the computer science field, used several years in these four highschools.
The mathematical papers published at the Institute allow us to state that he is a member of the Cluj Team on Numerical Analysis and Approximation Theory.
He is one of the computer pioneers in Cluj-Napoca and in Romania.
