Research Team



Prof. G. Panasenko is a specialist in the theory of partial differential equations, applied mathematics and applications to the mechanics of composite materials, fluid mechanics and mathematical modelling in biology, and in particular the blood flow modelling. His research has an important international aspect. The method of partial asymptotic decomposition of a domain (Panasenko method) proposed by G. Panasenko reduces the important computational costs for three-dimensional models and is applied for studying the blood circulation problems. He has published more than 140 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, two books (having more than 4000 citations). G. Panasenko was an adviser of twenty PhD students (nineteen dissertations completed). Since 2011 he is a distinguished professor (professeur classe exceptionnelle) of the University Jean Monnet (member of Université de Lyon). He is a member of editorial boards of seven international journals; coordinator in international projects: PICS CNRS French-Russian project BIOMAT in 2015-2017, and the French-German grant DAAD-Campusfrance in 2013-2014. G. Panasenko collaborates with biophysical team in Russian Academy of Sciences, with the team of the Fraunhofer Institute ITWM at Kaiserslautern, where he is a consultant, with the Universidad de Chile and Groningen University.


  • Konstantinas Pileckas

Prof. K.Pileckas is already almost 40 years working on the theory of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, in particular on the theory of the Navier-Stokes equations describing the motion of a viscous incompressible fluid. He has published more than 120 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, was giving invited talks at many international conferences, and was invited as the visiting professor to different world scientific centers. K.Pileckas was an adviser of seven PhD students (six dissertations completed). He actively cooperated with many scientists from different countries. He was the principal investigator of several Lithuanian and international research projects. Recently K.Pileckas (jointly with G. Panasenko) received breakthrough in the theory of Navier-Stokes equations in thin tube structures; the results concerning the asymptotic behavior of solutions, previously known only for the steady case, were obtained for the evolutionary case (see Nonlinear Analysis, 122 (2015) 125–168, 125 (2015), 582-607). On the other hand, during the last several years K. Pileckas (together with M. Korobkov and R. Russo) has introduced a completely new method that, so far, has led to the resolution of nonhomogeneous boundary value problem for Navier-Stokes equations in 2D and 3D axially symmetric bounded domains. The obtained result gives a complete answer to the more than 80 years being open Leray's problem in the case of 2D and axially symmetric 3D bounded domains (see Annals of Math., 181, 2 (2015), 769-807). These two results open extremely good perspectives to study the formulated above unsolved problems and to outrun the world leading mathematical groups working on this topic.
