Slovak mathematician Michal Fečkan, who works at Comenius University in Bratislava, is the only Slovak to appear on the Highly Cited Researchers ranking for 2019, as reported by the SITA newswire.

Clarivate Analytics of the Web of Science Group compiled the ranking.

A high-quality scientist

Fečkan specialises in non-linear functional analysis, dynamic systems, and their applications. Of particular importance is his contribution to the analysis of solutions of equations with fractional derivatives.

“In Slovakia, high-quality science is done, which is represented by excellent scientists and teachers like Michal Fečkan,” FMFI dean Daniel Šefčovič said, as quoted by SITA.

Today, the Slovak researcher works at the Department of Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Informatics of Comenius University (FMFI UK).
