# Professor Thanasis Fokas, University of Cambridge & Academy of Athens

**Professor Thanasis Fokas, University of Cambridge & Academy of Athens**

will deliver two lectures, under the auspices of “Greece 2021 Mathematical Legacy Programme”, an action under the auspices of the “Greece 2021 Committee”, funded by GAPSTI (Gianna Angelopoulos Programme for Science, Technology and Innovation), at the University of Cambridge, entitled:**“The Unified Transform Method: An unexpected extension of classical works of d’Alembert, Fourier and Laplace.”**

The Unified Transform, also called the Fokas Method, provides a novel, powerful hybrid analytical- numerical method for solving boundary value problems for linear and integrable nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs). In particular, for the wave equation and for linear evolution PDEs, the new method constructs analytical formulas which solve boundary value problems as efficiently as the d’Alembert formula and the Fourier transform, respectively, solve the associated initial value problems. The new method will be presented in a pedagogical manner without requiring any prerequisites, other than some knowledge of complex variables.

Schedule:**Tuesday, November 30, 2021 # 14:15 - 15:45
Friday, December 3, 2021 # 14:15 - 15:45**

Venue:

Amphitheatre 23, Department of Mathematics, **National and Kapodistrian University of Athens**, Panepistimiopolis, Zographou.**Both lectures will be given online and will be also recorded. On both the above dates, from 14:00, the following link will be available
