Bernard Deconinck (b. 1970 in Oudenaarde, Belgium) is a Full Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. He received his Diploma in Engineering Physics from the University of Ghent, Belgium. He has a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, under the direction of Harvey Segur. In addition, he has spent time at the University of Alberta, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, California, and Colorado State University.
Deconinck is interested in nonlinear waves. He has worked on integrable systems, algorithms for computations with Riemann surfaces, Bose-Einstein condensates, and methods to investigate the stability of solutions of nonlinear wave equations. He is the coauthor of several Maple commands to work with Riemann surfaces and the command to compute multidimensional theta functions numerically.
Deconinck is author of the following DLMF chapter
Deconinck served as a Validator for the original release and publication in May 2010 of the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions and the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions.
In November 2015, Deconinck was named Associate Editor for his chapter.
