Eduard Čech Distinguished Visitor

The Eduard Čech Distinguished Visitor Programme has been established with the aim to significantly enhance the creative environment in the Institute by bring here highly distinguished mathematicians for prolonged periods. The visitors are expected to deliver a series of at least three lectures for the mathematical community and to essentially develop scientific collaboration with the mathematicians in the Institute.


Giovanni Paolo 

Giovanni P. Galdi is the Leighton E. and Mary N. Orr Professor of Engineering and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also Honorary Professor in the TATA Institute of Fundamental Research, India, and the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany.
His contribution to the well-posedness of the Navier-Stokes equations has influenced generations of mathematicians. In particular, his extensive research monograph "An Introduction to the mathematical theory of the Navier-Stokes equations" (Springer-Verlag 2011) dedicated to the resolution of the sixth of the seven Millennium Prize Problems announced by the Clay Institute, has, to date, received over 27,000 downloads. With his work, Prof. Galdi has also pioneered several other fundamental areas of mathematical fluid mechanics, including dynamics of viscoelastic fluids, steady-state and time-periodic bifurcation of flow past an obstacle, and fluid-structure interactions. In this latter respect, in collaboration with his junior associates, in 2015 he published a memoir that positively answers a famous conjecture formulated by Nikolai Joukowsky in 1885 regarding the motion of a body with an interior liquid-filled cavity.
Part of the programme of Prof. Galdi's visit is the 14th Eduard Čech Lecture on 14 December 2017 and the Minicourse on the Navier-Stokes equations on February 12–16, 2018.
