Nicola Fusco (born August 14, 1956 in Napoli) is an Italian mathematician[1] mainly known for his contributions to the fields of calculus of variations, regularity theory of partial differential equations, and the theory of symmetrization. He is currently professor at the Università di Napoli "Federico II". Fusco also taught and conducted research at the Australian National University at Canberra, the Carnegie Mellon University at Pittsburgh and at the University of Florence.

He is the Managing Editor of the scientific journal Advances in Calculus of Variations, and member of the editorial boards of various scientific journals.


Fusco won the 1994 edition of the Caccioppoli Prize of the Italian Mathematical Union,[2] and, in 2010, the Tartufari Prize from the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. In 2008 he was an invited speaker at European Congress of Mathematics and in 2010 he was invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians on the topic of "Partial Differential Equations."[3]

From 2010 he is a corresponding member of Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.
