Curriculum vitae

Professor Bozidar D. Vujanovic was born in Smederevo (Serbia) in 1930. He graduated at the Department of Mechanics at the University of Belgrade 1955 and his doctorate was conferred to him at the same University at 1963 from the area of Theoretical Mechanics. He was employed at the Mechanical Engineering Faculty at the University of Belgrade as an Assistant of Mechanics from 1957 to 1963. Since then he has been at the University of Novi Sad-Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the Faculty of Technical Sciences and spent there all the time until he retired at 1995. Between 1967 and 1969 he was in the USA as a Research Associate at the University of Kentucky. From 1977 to 1978 he visited Japan as Visiting Professor at the University of Tsukuba and 1984 he spent six months as a Visiting Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Material Engineering at the Vanderbilt University in Neshville, USA. From 1986 to 2000 he was the President of the Yugoslav Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics.

He is the member of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics in Belgrade, and also a member of the Tensor Society-Japan. The scientific interest of Professor Vujanovic is Theoretical and applied mechanics, Variational Principles and their applications to conservative and non conservative dynamical systems, conservation laws of conservative and nonconservative systems, linear and nonlinear heat conduction theory, nonlinear oscillations with dissipative elements, optimal control theory etc. In 1990 Professor Vujanovic became a Correspondent Member of the Academy of Sciences and arts of Vojvodina in Novi Sad, and after the fusion of this Institution with the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Belgrade he has been adopted as the member of the same rank. At 2000 he has been elected as the Full Member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Belgrade.
