George A. Anastassiou (Template:Lang-el; born 1952) is a Greek mathematician doing research in computational analysis, in particular approximation theory and inequalities.

He was born in Athens, Greece, in 1952. He studied mathematics at the University of Athens, Greece, at the University of Southampton, UK and at the University of Rochester, New York, US, where he received his Ph.D. in 1984. [1]

He has taught at the University of Rhode Island,[2] Rhode Island, 1984–86 and the University of Memphis,[3] Tennessee, since 1986 where he is a tenured full Professor of Mathematics.


Anastassiou has written over 380 research articles,[4] [5] several monographs,[6] he edited also several volumes. He belongs to numerous editorial boards of mathematical journals. [7] [8] [9] [10]

George Anastassiou is the founder of several research areas, including: [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16]

  1. Fractional Differentiation Inequalities [17]
  2. Fuzzy Positive Operators Approximation [18]
  3. Fractional Monotone Approximation
  4. Quantitative Neural Network Appproximation
  5. Fractional Calculus on Time Scales [19]
