Professors Fečkan´s research is focused on the qualitative analysis of differential equations and dynamic systems, and on their applications. Massive response to his results in 2019 has put him among 1% of the most cited scientists in the world working in diverse research fields. The survey is carried out by the Clarivate Analytics Company from the Web of Science Group and covers all science disciplines. The award represents extraordinary international esteem of Professor Fečkan´s work. Membership of a representative of the Faculty, University and Slovakia in this distinguished club is highly gratifying.
Professor Fečkan is the only Slovak scientist in the ranking, while among the most cited researchers there are 14 ones from Czech Republic ( in chemistry, ecology and environmental science, and other disciplines), one from Hungary (physics), 287 from the USA, 10 from Russia, 55 from Austria and 6 from Poland. We believe that Professor Fečkan´s achievement will encourage other scientists in Slovakia and in the future the country will have more representatives in this prestigious ranking.
