Short
scientific curriculum of Paolo Marcellini

Paolo Marcellini. Degree in Mathematics at Rome 1,
Ph.D. Program (Perfezionamento) at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa with
Ennio De Giorgi as advisor. For some years Full Professor at the University of
Naples and at the University of Rome 2. Actually Full Professor of Mathematics
at the University of Firenze.

Scientific coordinator of the Ph.D. program in
Firenze. Three times Director of the Department of Mathematics "U.
Dini" of the University of Firenze. Member of the Direction of the
"Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica" (INdAM) in Rome. Member of
the Direction of the Scientific-Literary Institution Vieusseux. Member of the Scientific Academy “La Colombaria”.
First from November 2002 and, a second time, from November 2005 to October
2008, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Firenze. Actually,
since February 2010, President of the Scientific Commettee of the “Università
dell’Età Libera” organized by the City of Firenze. Since 2013 Director of the
"Gruppo Nazionale per l'Analisi Matematica, la Probabilità e le loro
Applicazioni" (GNAMPA) of the "Istituto Nazionale di Alta
Matematica" (INdAM).

Author of several books of didactic and scientific
type in Mathematics, and of several scientific articles published in
specialized international journals. The main scientific interests are: elliptic
pde's, variational inequalities, inverse problems, convex analysis,
G-convergence and homogenization, eigenvalues of the Laplacian, parabolic mean
curvature equation, nonconvex problems of the calculus of variations,
semicontinuity of quasiconvex integrals (with subcritical growth too),
regularity under nonstandard growth conditions: anisotropic functionals and pde
equations, p,q-growth conditions, general growth conditions; vector-valued
variational problems without quasiconvexity conditions, variational problems arising
from optimal foraging, pde equations and systems of implicit type, Jacobian
determinants of singular maps. Recently he found a variational formulation for
solutions to parabolic equations and systems which also implies existence of
weak solutions under general assumptions.

Member of the editorial board of some international
journals, among them Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications NONRWA.
