Bootan Rahman is currently a
Lecturer in Mathematics at University of Kurdistan, Hewlêr. He has previously
held positions that include, Mathematics teacher at the Department of
Engineering and Mathematics, ISC, University of Sussex; Associate Tutor at the
Department of Mathematics, University of Sussex; Assistant lecturer and
visiting assistant lecturer at Salahaddin University-Erbil and Soran
University, respectively. Bootan earned his BSc and MSc from Salahaddin
University-Erbil, and his Ph.D in mathematical biology from University of
Sussex, United Kingdom where he worked with Dr Yuliya and Dr Konstantin. His
Ph.D thesis led to the development of New Neural Network models with both
Discrete and Distributed Delays in connections between nodes alongside the
analysis of the stability properties of such systems.
His research lies in the area of
applied mathematics in the context of Delay Differential Equations (DDE) and their
applications to modelling neural and complex networks. Time delays play an
important role in analysing the behaviour of such networks, as they allow one
to account for inevitable delays in transmission, finite speed of signal propagation
and delayed connection. Time delays can also be used to control networks to
produce desired patterns and system behaviours.
