Dr Erkinjon Karimov on State TV


Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 5.58.37 PM

Dr Erkinjon Karimov, a long-term collaborator and an associated member of our Ghent Analysis & PDE Center was on the Uzbekistan State TV, celebrated for his scientific achievements. A special program was filmed about him.

Congratulations, Erkinjon!

Erkinjon has been our long-term visitor in 2019, and is planning to join us as a researcher from Autumn 2020, in the framework of our Odysseus project.

Erkinjon has just co-organised the Fractional Calculus Workshop with us.

Book of Abstracts VIDEO


The aim of the workshop is to exchange the recent progress and ideas in the field of fractional calculus and fractional differential equations (FDEs), and their applications to a variety of concrete problems. Our group took an initiative to organise this workshop for the continuity of research in the field despite the coronovirus times, therefore, the conference will take place on ZOOM.

The work of our group on the fractional calculus can be seen here


There is also a forthcoming special issue on evolution equations with singularities.

12 May: Celebration of Women in Mathematics

12 May is the International Women in Mathematics day! We celebrate all women who are contributing to mathematics at our group and around the world. We are privileged to have these collaborations.

#European Women in Mathematics
#Association of Women in Mathematics
#African Women in Mathematics
#Chile Women in Mathematics
#Indian Women and Mathematics

Maryam Mirzakhani

The idea of celebrating women in mathematics on Maryam Mirzakhani’s birthday, May 12, was proposed by the Women’s Committee of the Iranian Mathematical Society at the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics (WM)^2 in 2018. After being approved by hundreds of attendees at the meeting, the “May 12 Initiative,” often referred to simply as “May 12,” rose to a global and inclusive call to action, uniting several national and continental women-in-mathematics organizations worldwide. The fact that the original idea sparked an overwhelming response, resulting in more than one hundred events being organized in its inaugural year, showcases that the initiative fulfills a strong need.

Various processes in nature are characterized by irregular equations, in particular, evolution ones. Such equations could have chaotic and unexpected behaviours of the solutions, causing singularities. Therefore, they are natural in the sciences. Singularities could appear in different characteristics of the models such as coefficients and data. The initial conditions stand for the data for the evolution equations. By having data and coefficients less regular or, even singular, we are facing the difficulties outside of the tools of the classical analysis. For this, we are developing different approaches and technics to deal with. Here, we are more concentrated in such approaches and technics. One of the technics is hidden in the theory of regularisations. By regularising distributional initial data and coefficients, we arrive at the smooth enough operators. Their further study comes down to well-studied problems. One thing needs to be controlled a regularisation parameter. The Special Issue Singularities in Evolution Equations is collecting new results and trends on these problems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Singular evolution equations and very weak solutions;
  • Partial differential equations with time- and space-irregular coefficients;
  • Hyperbolic and parabolic type equations with distributional data.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted.

Guidelines for authors are the same as for regular issues. The guidelines file is available at https://www.elsevier.com/journals/chaos-solitons-and-fractals/0960-0779?generatepdf=true.

When submitting papers, authors must select VSI: Evolution Equations as the article type.

Educational schools activities

During the last year we have secured several grants for our educational activities for (PhD) students and early career researchers.

Our grants for educational activities:

2020 Flemish Government Seasonal School: Singularities in science and engineering (€23,000)
2020 Flemish Government Doctoral School: Wave equations and tsunami propagation (€3,650)
2019 Flemish Government Doctoral School: Inverse Spectral and Scattering Problems (€4,000)

Here is the first one that we have just organised. The other two are still to come.
