The Special Session to celebrate the 70th birth anniversary of Andrzej Szulkin, September 17, 2015

Andrzej Szulkin was born in 1945 in Poland. In 1969, just after completing his MSc degree in Electronic Engineering at Warsaw Polytechnic, he moved to Stockholm, Sweden, where he switched his research interests to mathematics: first topology and shape theory, and, then, to analysis. In 1983 he received the PhD in Mathematics under the direction of Harold S. Shapiro, and habilitation In 1986.  His professional career is connected with the Stockholm University, where he first was  assistant, then lecturer and became a professor in 2000.  In 2001 he was awarded the Medal for Merits in Mathematics of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists.

Professor Szulkin is a renown specialist in the field of variational methods in differential equations and critical point theory. He has obtained numerous deep results in the study of problems involving critical points of strongly indefinite functional, the Schroedinger equation, Hamiltonian systems, the applications of the Nehari manifold techniques and others. Having a profound background in topology, he employs many delicate tools from algebraic and geometric topology in his study of purely analytic problems.

Andrzej Szulkin has visited many research centers abroad and established  scientific relationships with collaborators e.g. in Germany, Italy and Mexico. For a long time he has been involved with the activities of the Schauder Center: he frequently visits Toruń as a visiting professor. Andrzej Szulkin is an active member of the Editorial Committee of the journal Topological Methods in Nonlinear Analysis. He is also a member of the Schauder Medal jury appointed by the Scientific Council of the Schauder Center.
