Integrable Systems Group
School of Mathematics, University of Leeds
Here is a list of former members of the Integrable Systems Group.
They are listed in alphabetical order, with indication (wherever possible)
of current activities, web pages, etc.
- Marek Antonowicz
Marek was a post-doc in Leeds (1986-8), working with Allan Fordy on
"Multi-Hamiltonian Structures of Systems of Nonlinear Evolution Equations".
He is currently living in Warsaw and is the Eastern European representative of
a computer company.
Chris was a post-doc in Leeds (1985-7), working with Allan Fordy on
"Integrable Nonlinear Systems Associated with Symmetric Spaces". He
is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics, University
James Atkinson |
James was a student of Frank Nijhoff during 2004-8, working on
"Integrable lattice equations: Connection to the Mobius group, Backlund
transformations and solutions". Email at email@example.com
Andrew was a post-doc in Leeds (1989-92), working with Allan Fordy on
"Miura Maps, Modifications and Deformations of Multi-Hamiltonian Systems". He
no longer works in Mathematical Physics, but is currently a successful novelist.
Chris was a student of Frank Nijhoff (2001-5) (thesis "On the
Quantization of Integrable Discrete Systems") and then a Temporary
Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Leeds (2005-6). He was a
post-doc in The University of Sydney for a time, but is now working for Philips
in the netherlands.
Burak was a student of Metin Gurses in Bilkent, but obtained a TUBITAK
grant to visit Leeds during 1997-8. Whilst in Leeds he worked with
Allan Fordy. He is currently working at the Department of Mathematics at
Bogazici University in Istanbul. He has not lost contact with Leeds and
still works with Allan Fordy.
- Pavlos Kassotakis
Pavlos was a student of Allan Fordy (2001-5) (thesis "The Construction of
Discrete Dynamical Systems"). He is currently living in Crete and
continuing to work on Integrable Maps.
Vadim sadly died on 16th December, 2005. He arrived in Leeds in 1996,
originally as a post-doc of Frank Nijhoff. He was awarded an EPSRC
Advanced Research Fellowship and a University Research Fellowship in 1999.
He was made Reader in Applied Analysis in August 2003. A memorial issue of
is collecting papers, dedicated to his memory.
Qing Ping Liu
Qing Ping was a student of Allan Fordy (1988-92) (thesis "Hamiltonian
structures for integrable nonlinear evolution equations"). He is
currently working in Beijing.
Sara was a student of Sasha Mikhailov (2000-4) (thesis "Reductions of
integrable equations and automorphic Lie algebras,") and then a
Temporary Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Leeds (2005-6). Before coming
to Leeds, she was a student at the Physics Department of the University of
Rome I, during which time she visited Leeds as an ERASMUS student, also
under the supervision of Sasha Mikhailov. She continues her collaboration
with Toni Degasperis of the
Integrable Dynamical Systems Group. She is currently a post-doc
in Vrije University, Amsterdam.
- Ian Marshall
Ian was a post-doc in Leeds (1988-91), working with Allan Fordy on
"Integrable Stationary Flows Associated with Symmetric and Homogeneous
Spaces". Until recently, he was at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de
Lausanne, but is currently between jobs.
- Maciej Nieszporski
Maciej spent 2 years in Leeds as a Marie Currie Fellow, to work with
Frank Nijhoff. He has now returned to his position in the Department of
Mathematical Methods in Physics at the University of Warsaw (email
Andrew was a student of Allan Fordy (1988-92) (thesis "Testing nonlinear
evolution equations for complete integrability"). He is currently working
at the Departamento de Matematica Aplicada at the Universidad Rey Juan
Paul was a student of Frank Nijhoff, working on
On Orthogonal Polynomials and Related Discrete Integrable Systems. He
is currently at the University of Sydney, but soon to move to the Katholieke
Universiteit Leuven (from May 1st, 2009)). Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tasos first visited Leeds as an ERASMUS student in 1995 (doing a project
under the supervision of Frank Nijhoff). At the time, he was an
undergraduate at the University of Patras. After his Ph.D. (also from Patras)
he returned to Leeds as a Marie Currie Fellow, to work with Frank Nijhoff.
He currently has a post-doc position in patras.
