Prof. P.A. Selyshchev
Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences
Prof. Selyshchev’s specialization is in theoretical physics, specifically complex non-linear systems and their evolution. He focuses on kinetic non-linear processes in materials under irradiation and has developed a theoretical approach to the self-organization phenomena in irradiated materials. Research foci are temporal and spatial self-organization of defect density under irradiation, dimensional changes in irradiated materials as dissipative structures and different kinds of interactions as mechanisms of dissipative structure formation (eg force interaction between defects, thermo-concentration and thermo-elastic interdependence).
Prof. Selyshchev was also involved as a theoretician in the development of post-Chernobyl strategies.
