Andrés M. Encinas

Associate professor at UPC
Research area: Discrete Mathematics

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UPC


Member of the research group Compthe, mainly focused on M-Matrix Analysis and Discrete Potential Theory. We analyze linear problems and discrete boundary value problems  from a Potential Theory point of view.
