Nakao Hayashi obtained his D.S. degree in 1987 from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. From April 1984 to March 1987, he served as a Research Associate at the Department of Applied Physics, School of Science and Engineering, Waseda University; from October 1988 to March 1995, an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Engineering, Gunma University; from April 1995 to March 1999, an Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Science, Science University of Tokyo; from April 1999 to March 2001, a Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Science, Science University of Tokyo; from April 2001 till present, a Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Graduate School of Science, Osaka University. He is interested in asymptotic behavior in time of solutions to nonlinear dispersive equations (nonlinear Schrodinger, nonlinear Klein-Gordon, Benjamin-Ono, Korteweg-de Vries, modified Korteweg-de Vries, derivative nonlinear Schrodinger equations) and nonlinear dissipative equations (Complex Landau-Ginzburg equations, Korteweg-de Vries equation on a half line, Damped wave equations with a critical nonlinearity).
