Cameron University’s Dr. Ioannis Argyros publishes new mathematics textbook

picture of book cover Cameron University’s Dr. Ioannis Argyros, professor of mathematical sciences, is the co-author of a new mathematics textbook, “Intelligent Numerical Methods: Applications to Fractional Calculus.” The 422-page volume has been published by Springer Verlag as part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence series. Argyros co-authored the book with Dr. Dr. George A. Anastassiou from the University of Memphis.

The book contains new research by the authors related to Computational Methods for solving equations. In particular, applications are given in fractional calculus. The book is designed to assist researchers, practitioners and students to efficiently utilize Numerical Methods for approximating solutions of equations resulting from the study of real life problems arising in Biosciences, Engineering, Mathematical Programming, Convex Optimization, Mathematical Physics and Mathematical Economics.

Argyros was assisted in his research by CU computer sciences major Akinola Akinlawon as part of his undergraduate research. Akinlawon presented a poster based on the work during Oklahoma Research Day 2015.

A member of the CU faculty since 1990, Argyros has published 26 books and more than 850 peer-reviewed articles on the topic of computational mathematics. He also serves at the editorial board of numerous mathematical journals. He is a frequent reviewer for the American Mathematical Society and other mathematical journals.  Argyros is the recipient of the Distinguished Research Award from the Southwest Oklahoma Advanced Technology Association.
