Assoc. Prof. Kiril Kolikov, PhD

Kiril Kolikov was born in 1950 in Kazanlak, Bulgaria. He acquired Master’s degree in mathematics at Plovdiv University “Paisii Hilendarski” (1973) and defended a PhD thesis on “Theoretical Ring Rroperties of Crossed Products” in 1985 at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”.

Dr. K. Kolikov works as an associate professor in the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics (FMI) of Plovdiv University. He lectures on algebra, algebraic structures, theory of numbers, linear algebra and analytical geometry. He is a member of the Union of Scientists in Bulgaria since 2008, and member of the Union of Mathematicians in Bulgaria. Uses Russian and English languages.

Professional recommendations about Kiril Kolikov can be given by Prof. DSc. Todor Mollov (FMI, Plovdiv University), Prof. DSc. Emil Manev (Faculty of Chemisrty and Pharmacy, Sofia University) and Dr. Vanya Bogoeva (Institute of Molecular Biology, BAS).

K. Kolikov has specialized on Crossed group rings in the Uzhgorod State University (Uzhgorod, Ukraine), Theory of groups (Sofia University, 1980), Theory of crossed group rings (Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung, 1988). Dr. Kolikov begins his scientific career in the field of crossed group rings. In this area he has 15 publications and has defended a PhD thesis in 1985. A serious contribution of his is the study of ideal crossed group rings. In the past 5 years he has built teams with which has initiated work in the fields of electrostatics, nuclear physics, theory of uncertainties (errors), mechanics of fluids and classical mechanics. This activity has resulted in 27 publications, some of which with serious contribution in the fundamental as well as in applied science.

In electrostatics he has generalized Coulomb’s law for the force and energy of electrostatic interaction between conducting spheres of arbitrary charges and radii, as well as the potential of the created electrostatic field. By applying the latter work to the field of nuclear physics and modeling the nucleons as tori, he has demonstrated that the strong interactions have electromagnetic nature.

K. Kolikov has developed the classical theory of uncertainties (errors) by introducing a new method for the analytical presentation of the uncertainties of an indirectly measurable quantity and the calculation of their values. On this basis he has defined a dimensionless scale for evaluating the quality of the experiment.

In the field of classical mechanics he has investigated the motion of material points, treated as active ones, that is, as such in which processes affecting their motion may occur. He has specified the concept of inertness of the bodies and offered a system of full, consistent and independent definitions of static, stationary and variable physical field.

In the field of mechanics of fluids he has generalized the Stokes’law for droplets of arbitrary shapes and sizes, disperse systems of arbitrarily high concentration and sedimentation in variable non-homogeneous gravitation field; he has introduced a new barycentric method for the determination of sedimentation processes in disperse systems. In 2008 K. Kolikov applied for a patent on a device for membrane separation and selective purification of industrial fluids and biological objects. On the basis of this device in 2009 he has won a big national scientific project on the destruction of tumor cell lines with the Scientific Investigation Fund (SIF) at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Science. Thus he became the leader of a team of scientists from Plovdiv Sofia University and BAS, in collaboration with the Biological Center in Innsbruck - Austria and the Department for Experimental Medicine and Biochemistry in the Medical faculty of the Roma University-Italy.

Dr. Kiril Kolikov has founded the Association Creative Way with the aim of developing theoretical studies and innovative works in science, culture, education, industry, etc.; generating conditions for the development of the scientific and cultural potential of the members of the Association; the realization of interdisciplinary and international collaboration.
