Vesselin Petkov is a professor emeritus ат the University of Bordeaux who has made important contributions to hyperbolic partial differential equations, spectral and scattering theory and dynamical systems.

Prof. Petkov graduated from Sofia University in 1967. In 1972 he obtained his PhD from Moscow State University under the direction of Olga Oleinik. After the completion of his PhD he was appointed a research fellow at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IMI-BAS). He became a full professor at IMI-BAS in 1988. Since 1991 he has been a Professor at the University of Bordeaux, France. In 2017 Prof. Petkov was awarded with the IMI-BAS Medal with Ribbon.
