Armen Kostanyan

Adjunct Associate Professor

Armen Kostanyan joined AUA in 2002. He graduated from the Faculty of Applied Mathematics of Yerevan State University (YSU) in 1979. From 1981 to 1984 he studied in Graduate School at the Department of Theoretical Cybernetics of Kiev State University under supervision of Professor Alexander Letichevsky. His  the thesis topic was "Search of Invariants for Programs with Boolean Arrays". In 2006 Armen received the academic degree of Associate Professor in mathematics.
He participated in the research program “Development of Scientific Computing Grid on the Base of Armcluster for South Caucasus Region” sponsored by International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) foundation (2007-2009). He also participated in educational program sponsored by the Open Society Institute (OSI) Assistance Foundation (2012-2014), and in joint educational program between YSU and University of Rostock (2010-2013).
His research interests include program verification, fuzzy computations, development of application-specific algorithms, problems in integrated circuit physical design.
Armen Kostanyan is the author of over 20 scientific articles and 3 textbooks.
