Data:
V.M. Sydorets was born on July 22, 1956 in Kiev. He received his B.S. degree from the Physics Faculty of the Kiev State University in 1978. He has been working at the Paton Welding Institute, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine since 1980. Currently, he is leading research stuff of the Department of Gas Discharge Physics and Plasma Devices. He received his Candidate of Technical Sciences degree (PhD) in 1992 (Thesis "Generalized Mathematical Model of the Dynamical Arc and Its Applications"). He received his Doctor of Technical Sciences degree (Dr. Sci.) in 2009 (Thesis "Chaotic Dynamics of Electric Circuits with Arc"). He has published over 84 scientific papers, including foreign patents. The papers are mainly devoted to simulation of electric arc, nonlinear electric circuits with arc, and its stability, periodic and chaotic oscillations which occur in these circuits. Area of interests: simulation of electric arc, chaos in nonlinear electric circuits with arc, techniques for nonlinear circuit research.
