· Computational Spectral Theory

· Inverse Problems

· Analysis of Partial Differential Equations: Existence, Uniqueness of Solutions, Asymptotic Behavior and Blow up

· Dynamical Systems, Bifurcation and Chaos

· Fractional, Impulsive Differential Equations

· Stochastic Differential Equations

· Optimization, Optimal Control, Variational Inequalities

· Game Theory and Quantum games

· Interpolation Theory

· Mathematical Modeling

· Thermoelasticity, Elasticity, Viscoelasticity, Mixed Heat Convection, Wave Propagation, Scattering, Diffraction, Fluid Dynamics, Flow in Porous media, Population Dynamics, Turbulence, Combustion
