Ovide Arino (1947-2003)

Ovide Arino was a mathematician working on delay differential equations. His field of application was population dynamics. He was a prolific author, who published more than 150 articles during his lifetime. He was especially active in terms of student supervision. Over the course of his career, he directed about 60 theses and devoted much time to his students. Many came from Morocco and Algeria. He has thus played a key role in the development of biomathematics in North Africa. Many of his students are now professors and still maintain international collaborations.

More information is available at:  http://euromedbiomath.ovide.free.fr/

The SFBT paid him tribute in 2004 by awarding the Ovide Arino Award at its first international conference in Morocco. Through this award, the ESMTB and SFBT join together to maintain his heritage and keep his memory alive.
