Professor Yutaka Nishiyama is a mathematician and a boomerang enthusiast. His Boomerang International Project page contains instructions in multiple languages for making your own paper boomerang and several videos of the boomerang in action.

Furthermore, he has written books and articles about mathematics in daily life, with publications and links to his articles available on his homepage (in English too). There is a short interview with him on Moebius Noodles.
