Mohamed Boudjelkha

Lecturer, Mathematical Sciences

I was first interested in Partial Differential Equations which I found fascinating because they solve so many problems in 3 and n dimensions in Physics and Engineering. Then while discussing in an informal way a problem in Mechanical Engineering with a group of scientists I was lead to Special Functions and how they can descibe in a compact way the solutions of  heat conduction problems. Later (2005) the 'Reimann Bessel Function' which combines the properties of Bessel and Riemann Fuctions was introduced and used to solve Partial Diffrential Equations with time dependent boundary conditions.
