## Salvatore A. Marano

0000-0001-5214-2586Salvatore A. Marano graduated from University of Catania, Catania, Italy, specializing in mathematics in 1987, won a prize of the Foundation Francesco Severi in 1991, and became Full Professor of mathematical analysis in 2001. He wrote more than 60 research papers published to appear in international journals of mathematics, for instance, Advances in Differential Equations, Applicable Analysis, Differential and Integral Equations, Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems, Journal of Differential Equations, Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, Nonlinear Analysis, Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis, and so on. He cooperated with both Italian and foreign researchers, for example, L. Gorniewicz from the University of Torun, Poland, V. Staicu from the University of Evora, Portugal, D. Motreanu from the University of Perpignan, France, and N.S. Papageorgiou from the Technical University of Athens, Greece. He obtained three positions of Visiting Professor abroad, namely, in Torun (1994), in Evora (1995), and in Perpignan (2002). Finally, he was the referee of various papers submitted to different international journals of mathematics. The research activity of Marano deals with both theoretical and applied questions, as the study of the structure of the critical set of a suitable family of non-smooth functions and applications to hemivariational and variational-hemivariational inequalities, as well as to boundary-value problems for differential equations with discontinuous nonlinearities, possible extensions of the classical compactness condition due to Palais-Smale, critical points of non-smooth functions on closed convex sets, and the semiconductor Boltzmann equation.
