Brief Bio
Carlos Argáez got his PhD degree in mathematics from the Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland by analysing nonlinear equations in the quantum theory of chemistry. Since then, he has participated in applied research regarding nonlinear systems. First studying the general numerical algorithms required to solve problems in computational chemistry, specially to obtain reaction energies, and currently in nonlinear systems arriving from dynamical systems described by ODE under the Lyapunov theory.


Mathematical research allows constructing new algorithms to solve traditionally difficult problems. In this regard, Dynamical systems are an important topic in applied science whose study had previously numerical limitations.

In Control Theory, Dynamical Systems described by Autonomous Ordinary Differential Equations are commonly used. Computational research has allowed the construction of Lyapunov functions with small computational effort by solving a PDE associated to the Lyapunov function of a dynamical system. Further research allows describing their components: The orbits that represent the sections of the function in which the system has a constant behaviour and the gradient-like flow in which the system is dynamic.

Applications of such function can be found in sciences as biology and in many engineering applications. Research and contributions on differential equations are important to offer stronger approaches to the perfect description of a dynamical system.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Computational Mathematics
  • Control Theory
  • Lyapunov Theory
  • Dynamical Systems Described by Differential Equations
  • Numerical Approach of Differential Equations
