Biography: |
Metin Demiralp was born in Türkiye (Turkey) on 4 May 1948. His education from
elementary school to university was entirely in Turkey. He got his BS, MS degrees and
PhD from the same institution, ìstanbul Technical University. He was originally chemical
engineer, however, through theoretical chemistry, applied mathematics, and computational
science years he was mostly working on methodology for computational sciences and now
he is continuing to do so. He has a group (Group for Science and Methods of Computing) in
Informatics Institute of ìstanbul Technical University (he is the founder of this institute).
He collaborated with the Prof. Herschel A. Rabitz’s group at Princeton University
(NJ, USA) at summer and winter semester breaks during the period 1985-2003 after his 14
month long postdoctoral visit to the same group in 1979-1980. He was also in collaboration
with a neuroscience group at the Psychology Department in the University of Michigan
at Ann Arbour in three years period 2010–2013 (with certain publications in journals and
proceedings).
Metin Demiralp has more than 100 papers in well known and prestigious scientific
journals, and, more than 270 contributions together with various keynote, plenary, and,
tutorial talks to the proceedings of various international conferences. He gave many invited
talks in various prestigious scientific meetings and academic institutions. He has a good
scientific reputation in his country and he was one of the principal members of Turkish
Academy of Sciences since 1994. He has resigned on June 2012 because of the governmental
decree changing the structure of the academy and putting politicial influence possibility
by bringing a member assignation system. Metin Demiralp is also a member of European
Mathematical Society. He has also two important awards of turkish scientific establishments.
The important recent foci in research areas of Metin Demiralp can be roughly listed
as follows: Probabilistic Evolution Method in Explicit ODE Solutions and in Quantum
and Liouville Mechanics, Fluctuation Expansions in Matrix Representations, High Dimensional
Model Representations, Space Extension Methods, Data Processing via Multivariate
Analytical Tools, Multivariate Numerical Integration via New Efficient Approaches, Matrix
Decompositions, Multiway Array Decompositions, Enhanced Multivariate Product
