# Welcome!

Modern mathematical education is fundamental, prestigious and promising. Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovs National University is one of the recognized national leaders in this area of knowledge, and it guarantees the high-quality training, which will be a reliable basis for a graduate further career.

Rector of Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovs National University, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, Corresponding Member of National Academy of Science of Ukraine, a graduate of Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty, Professor of the Department of Differential Equations, **N.V. Poliakov**

Department of differential equations was created in 1966 on the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of the Dnepropetrovsk State University. Associate Professor B.I. Kryukov headed by of the Department. Staff of the Department was as follows in 1966: Associate Professor B.I. Kryukov, Associate Professor V.A. Ostapenko, senior lecturer O.V. Zenkin, Assistant I.N. Shields, Assistant L.I. Shelest, senior laboratory L.V. Lybina.

In time the workload and the number of employees of the Department were increased. The skills of teachers are constantly improved. Professor Ostapenko (1975-1995), Professor NV Polyakov (1995-2014), Professor P. Kogut from 2014 (to the present) were headed the Department after Prof. B.I. Kryukov… read more >>>
