Introduction
Dejenie Alemayehu Lakew (PhD) is a mathematician with long experience in teaching, research and publications. His dictum is mathematics is both useful and beautiful, it is a study of abstract structures of logic, reason and imagination. He taught mathematics (undergraduate & graduate) in his long teaching career, author, co-author of articles in peer reviewed journals, and reviewer/editor. Areas of research: Analysis - Clifford analysis, functional analysis, operator theory, PDEs, ODEs.

Question
Consider the two:
*. " A weak divergence CDC method for biharmonic equation on triangular and tetrahedral meshes " by ..... and
*. " Chlodosky type - Bernstein Stancu operator of Korvokin -type approximation theorems .. " by ...
Both are titles of articles written for mathematics journals. The first clearly indicates that it is a mathematics paper, while the second, barely with list of names of individuals in sequence.
We all know that mathematics of man is as old as mankind and that of nature is as old as nature itself. Mathematicians study and write, extrapolate and expand the kingdom of mathematical knowledge freely with no taking possession of any kind. But a recent phenomena is unique, in which a mathematics article is barely understood to be mathematics, instead chains of names of humans. The above two examples describe what I am discussing. Just imagine, all those results in mathematics since antiquity, written in the name of those who established them (which many of them will be unknown), then we are in real estate business, and the very meaning of mathematics and its universality, ubiquities-ness lose its flavor.
Let us keep mathematics - mathematical.

Project
Extend the location concept from material point to area, and scrutinize the ramifications. Connect to Tti and first order gravity concepts.
Project
To prove that solutions of first, second and higher order PDEs evolve as sums of functions that are orthogonal with respect to the inner product of a Sobolev space W^{k,2}(Ω) for k= 1, 2, 3,... The components are the parts that evolve from the trace values of solutions on the boundary ∂Ω of the domain and the ones that evolve from values of the differential equations in the interior of the domain Ω. I use the symbol ⊎ to denote an orthogonal sum of functions that are from orthogonal sum ⊕ of function subspaces.
Project
The them of this project is to open a forum of acknowledgement to our former academic advisers who initiate, acclimate and guide us in to the frontiers of our fields of research and be reasons to our achievements. I share an article about my doctoral research adviser Prof. John Ryan of the University of Arkansas, his academic works, his doctoral students and his scholarly achievements in the field of Clifford Analysis. The writer of the article is Prof. Wolfgang Sprößig, Department of Mathematics and Informatics, Institute of Applied Analysis, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, a lead mathematician in Clifford analysis and applications. Acknowledge your former academic advisers by sharing their names and academic achievements here in this forum, their human dimensions as well if need be.
