Prof. Mohsen Razzaghi
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Mississippi State University, USA
Biography: Prof. Mohsen Razzaghi's area of research centers on orthogonal
functions, optimal control, wavelets, fractional calculus and
their applications in science and engineering. His work is about
numerical approximation using polynomial series and orthogonal
functions, in particular, in the area of "hybrid functions" by
combining piecewise and continuous basis functions. He was the
first to use Legendre wavelets for approximating solutions to
problems in dynamical systems with jump discontinuities.
He has over 160 refereed journal publications in mathematics,
mathematical physics, and engineering. Most of his refereed
papers are published in prestigious international journals. He
was invited to write an article titled, "Walsh Functions" for
inclusion in the Encyclopedia of Electrical and Electronics
Engineering, published by John Wiley & Sons in 1999. According
to Google Scholar, one of his papers coauthored with a Ph.D.
student was cited over 475 times.
