University of Thessaly
Dr. Loukas Zachilas was born in Athens, Hellas, in 1960. He studied Mathematics at the University of Athens and he graduated in 1983. In 1988, he obtained a Ph.D. titled “Numerical and Theoretical study of three dimensional stellar systems” from the Department of Physics, University of Athens.
He has published a lot of papers in scientific journals such as: Astronomy & Astrophysics, Astronomy & Astrophysics Supplement Series, Chemical Physics, Molecular Physics, International Journal of Bifurcation & Chaos Applied Mathematics, Journal of Biological Physics, International Journal of Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulations and Solar Physics. His research interests focus in dynamical systems in two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces. Models like these arise in Galactic Dynamics, in Applied Economics, in time series analysis and in arms races problems. Since 1982, he has participated in a lot of Symposia and Summer Schools.
Since 1990, he has taught several undergraduate and graduate courses concerning Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Differential Equations at the University of Crete, at the TEI of Heraklion, Crete, at the University of Thessaly, at the TEI of Larissa etc. Since March 2019, Dr L. Zachilas is an Associate Professor on Numerical and Analytical Study of Non-Linear Dynamical Models and Stability of Economic Systems in the Department of Economics at the University of Thessaly.
He is member of the International Astronomical Union and he is the President of the Amateurs Astronomical Club in Volos. During the last 13 years he is the Leader of the Olympic Team in Astronomy and Astrophysics and represents Greece in the IOAA.
