Teaching responsibilities

Prof. Alexander Bogdanov has over 40 years of lecturing experience at Mathematical-mechanical faculty of St-Petersburg State Technical University, Polytechnical University, Institute for Precise Mechanics and Optics. At present he's a visiting Professor at University of Amsterdam and Professor at Electrotechnical University. He gave his lectures at over 20 leading Universities all over the world.

Areas of research

Main activities of Prof. Bogdanov are related to mathematical methods in physics, computational methods and mathematical modeling. Lately he became concentrated on creation of data and knowledge bases for a number of applied fields and creation of algorithms for high-performance computing. At the same time, he's involved with computational cluster creation problems on various computer platforms, i.e. System integration problems.

The area at which Prof. Bogdanov obtained important scientific results is related domestic and international air-space programs. The main programs were "Vega-Galley Comet" and "Mars-94". Other major applied programs include database creation on physical-chemical gas dynamics technological laser optimization on  HF.

Prof. Bogdanov is an expert in designing, development and implementation of high-performance computation systems for solving complicated scientific, engineering, research and analytic problems. He was directly involved in a number of successful projects including creation of the first vector cluster in Europe (1994г.), first Power cluster in Europe (1995г), first Beowulf cluster in Eastern Europe (1996).

Under direct supervision by Prof. Bogdanov the first experiment on distributed calculation via Internet was carried-out with participation of  GMD, Germany and SARA (Netherlands). In 2003 the concept and technical solution architecture design was made by Prof. Bogdanov for creation of distributed supercomputer  center in Canada IT&CSC

Prof. Bogdanov has developed concepts and oversaw creation of complex informational computing and educational complexes within the frameworks of the Union State  Programme "Development and Implementation of the line of high-performance computing systems with parallel architecture (supercomputers) and creation of applied hardware-software complexes based on them", as well as "Development of the set of e-books on high-performance distributed computations technologies" program.

Over 200 scientific works were published.


Prof. Bogdanov is giving presentations at seminars and conferences. He's an organizing committee member of two leading international conferences on high-performance computing, member of editorial board of 2 publication houses and a member of  FGCS magazine editorial board.

Member of American mathematical society and International computer society, an Academic of European Academy (Euroscience) and Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Board member of Society for computer modeling at  ACM, member of Space Federation of Russia.
