## Vladislav Kravchenko

Vladislav Kravchenko was born in Odessa, Ukraine, in 1968. He obtained the M.S. degree in applied mathematics from the University of Odessa in 1991 and the Ph.D. degree in physical and mathematical sciences from Rostov University, Russia, in 1994. He was a Full Professor at the National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico, Mexico, from 1995 to 2006. He has been working with the Department of Mathematics, Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (CINVESTAV), Campus Queretaro, Mexico, Mexico, since 2006. His research interests are in complex analysis, its generalizations (pseudoanalytic function theory and quaternionic analysis) and applications, ordinary and partial differential equations, models of mathematical physics, and wave propagation in complex media. He published three books: *Integral Representations for Spatial Models of Mathematical Physics*, Pitman Research Notes in Mathematics Series, v. 351, Addison Wesley Longman, 1996, 256 pp. ISBN 0582297419; *Applied Quaternionic Analysis*, Heldermann-Verlag, Research and Exposition in Mathematics Series, v. 28, 2003, 136 pp. ISBN 3-88538-228-8; *Applied Pseudoanalytic Function Theory*, Birkhäuser, Series: Frontiers in Mathematics, 2009 ISBN: 978-3-0346-0003-3. Moreover, he has more than 60 research articles in refereed journals.
