Resonance scattering and cloaking: unified mathematical approach and model
Yury Shestopalov is now 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 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. His main scientific contributions are within 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. 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 240 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, 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.
