Initiator of the first scientific conferences devoted to the issues and methods in liquid mechanics, later transformed into international biennial symposia. Author of 50 scientific papers, most of which were devoted to the methods of analyzing aerodynamic fields in spatial, non-stationary compressible flows. Author of the unified theory of simple and double waves in gas dynamics and mathematical bases for the description of inviscid compressible flows.

1929-2015prof. MAREK BURNAT

Graduate of the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at the University of Warsaw (1952). Since 1956 - a doctoral student of the Leningrad State University (currently called the Saint Petersburg State University) supervised by an outstanding Soviet mathematician, Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya. He received the habilitation degree in 1963 at the UW Department of Mathematics and Physics, where in 1971 he became associate professor and in 1988, professor. An outstanding mathematician in partial differential equations and their application. In 1955-2000 he worked, and later headed, the Department of Equations of Mathematical Physics of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw (MIM UW). Co-founder, and later (1987-1993) director of the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics at the above-mentioned Faculty of MIM UW. In 1956-1961 and 1964-1972 he worked at the Laboratory of Fluids and Gases of IPPT PAN. Simultaneously to his work at IPPT PAN, he regularly lectured at UW (lectures, seminars, practical classes). He supervised eight Doctors of Science, including three at IPPT PAN. Since 1967 - member of the Polish Mathematical Society; since 1991 - member of the Scientific Council of Juliusz Pawel Schauder Center for Nonlinear Studies at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. Professor Burnat was also a member of the Editorial Committee of the Topological Methods in Nonlinear Analysis published by J. P. Schauder CBN.
