Welcome

Hello. My name is Arkadz.

I'm glad to see you on my web page. Here you can find some information about me and ways to contact me.

A little about myself:

I'm a PhD student in Pennsylvania State University, Eberly College of Science, Department of Mathematics. My main areas of interests are: PDE analysis and computations, hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, fluid dynamics, finite difference schemes, applications of exact difference schemes.

I was born in 1989 and grew up in Minsk, which is the capital of the republic of Belarus. I got seriously interested in maths at the age of 12, when started to participate in competitions in mathematics and physics. I also attended programming classes at Belarusian State University (BSU) from 6th to 9th grade.

After graduating from middle school, I successfully passed the exams and became a student of the mathematics class at the Lyceum of BSU, the best high school in the country.

At the mathematics entrance exam to BSU I got the highest grade possible (only 7 out of 500 candidates managed to get this grade), and received full scholarship to study at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science.

My further development you can find over the pages of this website.

        Best regards,

Arkadz Kirshtein
