Prof. Kofane obtained his PhD in 1987 from the University of Bourgogne in France. He has been Head of the Mechanical Laboratory of Physics of the faculty of Science at the University of Yaoundé I and is the originator of the parameterized double-well potential used in phase transitions in quantum tunneling. More recently, he has pioneered a Hamiltonian which describes the spin dynamics of ferromagnets subject to ease-plane anisotropy and a parameterize Zeeman energy. His research interests include nonlinear dynamics, solution theory, chaos theory, statistical mechanics, classical and quantum mechanics and have made important contributions in the area of the theories of solutions and chaos including continuous and discrete non linear systems, classical and quantum systems. He has written more than 100 papers and is Senior Associate of the Abdu Salaam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). He is a member of many professional Societies and Scientific Institutions.
