Keynote Speaker II
Prof. Marat Akhmet, Middle East Technical University, Turkey
Marat Akhmet is a professor of mathematics at Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) known for his research on the chaos and bifurcation theory in differential equations and hybrid systems with applications in physics, neural networks, biology, medicine and economics . Born in Kazakhstan, he studied at Aktobe State University. He received his doctorate in 1984 at Kiev University . He has been awarded a Science Prize of TUBITAK (Turkey, 2015), for best achievments in scientific research. He is an author of four books: "Principles of Discontinuous Dinamical Systems", Springer, 2010, "Nonlinear Hybrid Continuous Discrete-Time Models", Atlantis Press (Springer), 2011, "Neural networks with Discontinuous Impact Activations," Springer, 2014, and "Replication of Chaos in Neural Networks, Economics and Physics", Springer&HEP, 2015. His has solved the Second Peskin conjecture for Integrate-and-fire biological oscillators, has introduced and developed theory of differential equations with piecewise constant argument of generalized type, many aspects of discontinous dynamical systems. The last decade his main subject of research is input-output analysis of chaos and irregular behavior of hybrid neural networks.
