I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics of the University of Craiova, Romania. My office is in room 309 of the Central Building. I received my Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Analysis from Bucharest University (Romania) in 1997, under the supervision of Academician Professor Romulus Cristescu.

**
AFFILIATIONS:**

- International Federation of Nonlinear Analysts (IFNA), since 1992.

- American Mathematical Society (AMS), since 1999.

I am also a reviewer for Zentralblatt fur Math.

**
RESEARCH GRANTS:**

- University Jean Monnet of Saint-Etienne and ENS Lyon, France (January-June 1992)

- University Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie), France (1-31 May, 1998)

- University Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie), France (April-July 2000)

Also, in the summer of 1996, I participated with a 45-minutes invited talk at the Second World Congress of Nonlinear Analysts (WCNA-96), organized by IFNA in Athens (Greece)

I think it is very difficult to evaluate a mathematician or a part of mathematics. There are a lot of beautiful things to be done in mathematics. And mathematics is, basically, individual. I don't believe you can do mathematics with a group.

I have no difficulty in doing mathematics, so when I do mathematics, I enjoy it. And therefore I'm always doing mathematics, because the other things I cannot do. There is nothing else I can do well. And I think this will be true throughout my life.

My main research interests are in :

Nonlinear Functional Analysis

Axiomatic Topological Degree Theory

Nonlinear Evolution Equations

Bases in Banach Spaces

Nonlinear Operators of Monotone Type

HISTORY

PHILOSOPHY

Favorite quotations: A mathematical theory is not to be considered complete until you have made it so clear that you can explain it to the first man whom you meet on the street. -- David Hilbert

The faculty is not a pool changing room. One can measure the importance of a scientific work by the number of earlier publications rendered superfluous by it. -- David Hilbert

Do not lose your faith. A mighty fortress is our mathematics. Mathematics will rise to the challenge, as it always has. -- Stan Ulam

One may be a mathematician of the first rank without being able to compute. It is possible to be a great computer without having the slightest idea of mathematics. -- Novalis

Brouwer's Theorem: Every function from [0,1] to R is uniformly continuous.

No one shall expel us from the paradise that Cantor has created for us. -- David Hilbert

We do not believe that this world is created and ruled by a God. -- The World Buddhist Council, Sri Lanka, 1966
