Research and Expertise

  • Convex and Discrete Geometry

    Geometric Inequalities from Euclidean geometry are generalized to the Minkowski Plane and Minkowski Space.  A Minkowski space is a finite dimensional normed linear space.

  • Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control Theory; Optimization

    Calculus of variations and optimal control theory is used to find extrema of geometric problems in Euclidean and Minkowski spaces.

  • Differential and Integral Equations

    Quadratic non-linear integral equations of Volterra and Fredholm type are investigated.

    Ordinary and Partial differential equations are applied to traffic flow theory.

  • Mathematical Modeling

    Mathematical modeling is used for applied problems particularly on  traffic flow theory, pharmacokinetics and other areas.
