Stefano De Marchi is associate professor in Numerical Analysis at the University of Padua with habilitation to full professor since March 2017. He received the degree in Mathematics in 1987 from the University of Padova, the master’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science in 1990 from the University of Padova and the PhD in Computational Mathematics in 1994, “ciclo VI – Consorzio Nord-Orientale”.
He is author and co-author of more than 95 scientific papers, many of them in approximation theory, multivariate polynomial interpolation, approximation by radial basis functions with applications to medical image reconstruction, rational interpolation and quasi Monte Carlo compression.
He is one of the discoverers of the so called “Padua points”, which are the only set of quasi-optimal interpolation points explicitly known on the square, for polynomial interpolation of total degree.
He is managin editor of the open access journal Dolomites Research Notes on Approximation edited by the Padova University Press, co-founder of the research group CAA (Constructive Approximation and Applications) between the Universities of Padova and Verona and founder member of the Rete Italiana di Approssimazione (RITA).
He is also author of the books Funzioni Splines Univariate (Forum, Ed. Universitaria Udinese, 2001), Appunti di Calcolo Numerico (Esculapio Ed. Bologna, 2nd ed. 2016) and Meshfree Approximation for Multi-Asset European and American Option Problems (Aracne Ed. Roma, 2012).
