Maoan Han is a Professor at Shanghai Normal University, China. He received his Ph.D. degree in mathematics, Nanjing University, Nanjing, China, in 1987. From 1987 to 1996, he worked at Shandong Mine Institute, Tai An; from 1996 to 2005, he worked at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai; since 2005, he has worked at Shanghai Normal University, Shanghai. His main research interests include bifurcations and qualitative theory, periodic solutions of ODEs, and limit cycles of polynomial systems. His research grants from the Natural Science Foundation of China include periodic orbits of dynamical systems (1989–1991), symmetry bifurcations, symmetry breaking, and periodic perturbed systems (1993–1995), homoclinic bifurcations of dynamical systems and quasiperiodic equations (1995–1998), bifurcation theory of ODEs and qualitative theory of polynomial systems (1996–2002), bifurcations of dynamical systems with parameters (2004–2006), study on asymptotic behavior of differential equations (2007–2009), and periodic solutions and stability of differential equations (2010–2012). He published many books including Smooth Dynamical Systems, East China Normal University, Shanghai, 1993 (in Chinese, with D. Zhu); Bifurcation Theory of Differential Equations, Coal Industry Press, Beijing, 1994 (in Chinese, with D. Zhu); and Bifurcation Theory and Methods of Dynamical Systems, World Scientific, 1997 (with D. Luo, X. Wang, and D. Zhu). He published more than 200 papers.
