IEEE Day 2021 Celebration 1st day


IEEE Day 2021

Annual IEEE Day Celebration. With a theme of “Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow”, IEEE Day celebrate the first time in history when engineers worldwide gathered in 1884 to share their technical ideas.

While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next. Activities worldwide demonstrate the multiple ways thousands of IEEE members in local communities in one hundred and sixty countries join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage technology into a better tomorrow.

Complex Waves and Resonances. A Review on Recent Advances

Yury Shestopalov is now a professor of mathematics at the University of Gävle, Sweden. He accomplished complete university career from teaching assistant to professor and department head at Moscow State University (MSU), Karlstad University and the University of Gävle (since 2013). Y. Shestopalov has been continuously teaching (since 1977) all university courses in mathematics. In 1992-1993 he created and then was head of the department of computer science at the MSU Kolmogorov Advanced Education and Science Centre (AESC). The Kolmogorov School. Y. Shestopalov organized the teaching of computer science, programming, and foundations of applied mathematics, worked out programs and basic courses, textbooks, compendiums, and course materials. As a member of the Board of Advisors and then of the Board of Directors Y. Shestopalov initiated the Faculty of Higher Pedagogical Education at MSU. His main scientific results and contributions are within the following areas: spectral theory of operators and its application in mathematical methods for electromagnetics; methods of solution to inverse problems and problems with uncertain data; wave propagation in nonlinear media and nonlinear operator equations; integral equations, partial differential equations; numerical methods, optimization, applied computer codes, software and program packages. Among his recent achievements are complete description of the spectrum of waves in a broad class of inhomogeneously filled waveguides and mathematical theory of inverse waveguide problems. Y. Shestopalov has authored and co-authored five books, also published in USA and UK, more than 80 articles in peer-reviewed journals and in total more than 250 scientific works. He supervised several PhD works; among his disciples there are active professors in mathematics, applied mathematics and electrical engineering. Y. Shestopalov performs international cooperation as visiting professor and coheads international research projects with several institutions in Sweden, Latvija, USA, Japan, Germany, Finland, Russia, and Ukraine. Since 1977 Y. Shestopalov organized more than 20 and participated in more than 60 international conferences and symposia; he is Vice-Chairman of Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium and Programme Committee member of several major URSI conferences.
