Welcome from the Chair

In order to commemorate International Day of Mathematics 2023 (, MDPI is launching a special webinar to encourage researchers to join together, take action, and raise awareness as to how the exchange of findings facilitates efforts to explain the essential role that mathematics play in breakthroughs in all areas.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the International Day of Mathematics Webinar 2023. Please find below an up-to-date outline of presenters.

Department of Mathematics, University of Torino, Italy

Prof. Dr. Luigi Rodino, after studies in Mathematics at the University of Torino, completed his education as post-doc in Lund University, Sweden, under the guide of Lars Hormander, and in Princeton, USA, with supervisor J.J.Kohn (1971-1975). From 1976 till now he works as professor of Mathematical Analysis in the University of Torino. Starting from 2017 he is also chief researcher at the RUDN University of Moscow. Rodino was chief coordinator of international research projects for NATO and UNESCO. In the period 2013-2017 he was president of the ISAAC, International Society for Mathematical Analysis, Applications and Computation. He is author of about 150 papers and 1000 reviews. He acted as editor of about 20 proceeding volumes, he was supervisor of 17 Ph.D. dissertations. Scientific interests are in Mathematical Analysis and Applications, in particular: - Partial Differential Equations - Operator Theory - Function Spaces and Generalized functions - Fourier Analysis, theory and applications

Department of Computer Science, University College London, UK,
Systemic Risk Centre, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

Prof. Dr. Guido Germano is Professor of Computational Science and Director of the MSc Computational Finance at University College London, Research Associate of the Systemic Risk Centre, London School of Economics, and associate editor of journals of mathematics and complex systems. He has studied in Pisa obtaining a laurea in 1994 and a PhD in 1998 on quantum-classical molecular simulation, with research stays at MPIP Mainz (1993-1994), the University of Bonn (1994-1995) and the University of California, San Francisco (1996). After postdocs in theoretical physics in Bristol (1998-2000) and Bielefeld (2000-2002), he has led a computer simulation group at the University of Marburg until he joined UCL in 2013. He has also been research fellow at Università del Piemonte Orientale, Novara, and Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa (1998 and 2012-2013). Professor Germano's interests are in computational science or scientific computing applied to financial mathematics and its links with statistical physics. His recent research has been on stochastic processes (in particular stochastic volatility models, Lévy processes and continuous-time random walks) and the numerical solution of pricing equations for barrier options and other path-dependent derivatives in Fourier-z and Fourier-Laplace space or with Monte Carlo, but he has been working also on model calibration, machine learning, algorithmic trading, empirical high-frequency data, probability of default, and agent-based models. His earlier research was in computational physics/chemistry and the theory of soft condensed matter.
