Ryogo Hirota

Japanese mathematician

Ryogo Hirota (1932-2015) is a Japanese mathematician and a former professor at Waseda University. He investigated about nonlinear differential equations and their discrete versions[1][2][3][4][5]. He invented a method to solve nonlinear differential equations, and it is currently known as the "Hirota's direct method"[6][7][8].
