Maricel Agop was born on September 15, 1955, in Bacau, Romania. He is a Professor at the Department of Physics, Gheorghe Asachi Technical University, Romania. He received his B.S. degree from the Faculty of Physics, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, Romania, and M.S. degree in theoretical physics and D.S. degree (Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics) from the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, Romania, in 1979, 1980, and 1983, respectively. He is a Full Professor at the Physics Department, Gh. Asachi Technical University of Iasi. Agop has more than 150 papers published in international physics journals, 15 books, and 2 letters patent awarded the golden medal at the Brussels Eureka in 1994. His areas of investigation include classical field theory (classical electrodynamics, general relativity, etc.); quantum theories (quantum mechanics, quantum field theories, etc.); gauge theories of the fields (U1, SU2, SUn, gravitational gauge theories, etc.); nonlinear dynamics and chaos, theoretical fundaments (bifurcations, dynamical system stability, chaos in classical and quantum Hamiltonian systems, characterization of the chaotic sets, chaos synchronization and control, constructive effects of the noise in nonlinear dynamical systems, criterions for evolution to chaos, etc.); the utilization of the nonlinear dynamics in studying the physical phenomena in plasma (discharge or laser produced plasma, plasma self-structuring, etc.), solid state (thermal and electrical transport phenomena, etc.), superconductors (of first and second types, transport phenomena, properties, variation laws of the superconducting parameters, etc.), superfluidity (transport phenomena, properties, variation laws of the superfluid’s parameters, etc.), nanostructures and nanofluids (thermal and electrical transport phenomena, etc.), and phase transitions (solid-liquid, conductor-superconductor, etc.); and using the nonlinear dynamics in studying the physical fields (applications of the fractal theories in gravitation).
