Anastasios (Tassos) Bountis was Professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of Patras, from 1990 until 2016, when he became Professor of Mathematics at the Nazarbayev University. He has been the director of the Center for Research and Application of Nonlinear Systems of the University of Patras, and the Laboratory of Nonlinear Systems and Applied Analysis, of its Department of mathematics with webpage http://www.math.upatras.gr/~crans. In 2014 he was elected Corresponding Member of the Academy of Athens in the chair of complex systems. He was the recipient of the 2014 Charles Hermite Science Ambassador Award of Saar/Germany and the 2009 Academy of Athens Award for “Dynamical Systems”. In 2015 he was elected member of the European Academy of Science and Arts, at Salzburg, Austria.
He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Rochester, N.Y., in 1978, and has worked at CalTech in 1979 and as Assistant and Associate Professor at Clarkson University in the U.S.A. until 1985. He has been invited lecturer and researcher in several countries in Europe, Mexico, India, Japan, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia and South Korea. His research has been supported by many U.S., European and Greek grants, most recently (2010 – 2012) by an ERA-Complexity NET project, called “Complex Matter” involving the University of Patras and 3 other European Universities (125000 euro) and a “Thalis” project on the Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems 2012 – 2015 (600000 euro).
He has organized in Greece 4 international conferences, 22 Greek summer schools on “Nonlinear Dynamics and Complexity” and 5 International Ph.D. Schools on “Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems”, 2011 at Patras, and July 2012 at Pescara, Italy, 2013 in Crete, 2014 in Athens and 2015 at Patras. He has authored 5 books in Greek on dynamical systems and fractals and one in English on “Complex Hamiltonian Dynamics” (Springer Synergetics, 2012). He has edited (or co-edited) 7 volumes of international conference proceedings and 10 volumes of Greek conference proceedings. He has supervised 19 M.Sc. theses and 15 Ph.D. theses and is on the Editorial Board of 5 International Journals. He has published 148 papers in refereed journals and 55 in conference proceedings and has nearly 4500 citations (excluding those by himself and co-authors), and Google h-index: 32, g-index: 56
