Professor George A. Anastassiou was born in Athens, Greece, in 1952.

He studied mathematics at the University of Athens, Greece, at the University of Southampton, U.K.
and at the University of Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A, where he received his Ph.D. in 1984.

Professor Anastassiou has taught at the University of Rhode Island, RI, 1984-86 and the University of Memphis, TN, since 1986 where he is a tenured full professor of Mathematics.

His broad area of research is Computational Analysis, in particular Approximation Theory and Inequalities. Dr. Anastassiou has written over 250 research articles, several monographs, he edited also several volumes. Among others he is the founder of “Fractional Differentiation Inequalities” , “ Fuzzy Positive Linear Operators” and “Fractional Calculus on Time Scales” theories. He belongs to numerous editorial boards of mathematical journals.
In 2005 he founded a three mathematical journals publishing company “Eudoxus Press, LLC”,  and he continues to be the president of that company.
