The paper deals with the citation index and h-index, which are the main scientometric indices, currently used for evaluating the performance of scientists and university professors. The author indicates their main disadvantages and considers a number of illustra-tive examples. The study shows that the normalized citation index (taking into account the presence of co-authors) has a number of important advantages in comparison with other scientometric indices. The author proposes new indices — the maximum citation indices, which can be easily calculated, have a simple and clear interpretation and have a number of distinct advantages in comparison with the h-index.

In the article we explored nonlinear hyperbolic delay reaction-diffusion equations with varying transfer coefficients. A number of generalized separable solutions were obtained. Most of the equations considered contain arbitrary functions. Global nonlinear instability conditions of solutions of hyperbolic delay reaction-diffusion systems were determined. The generalized Stokes problem for a linear delay diffusion equation with periodic boundary conditions was solved.

We present a number of new simple separable, generalized separable, and functional separable solutions to one-dimensional nonlinear delay reaction-diffusion equations with varying transfer coefficients of the formut = [G(u)ux ]x F(u,w),where w = u(x,t) and w = u(x,t ), with denoting the delay time. All of the equations considered contain one, two, or three arbitrary functions of a single argument. The generalized separable solutions are sought in the form =1 = () () N

n n n u x t , withn (x) and n (t) to be determined in the analysis using a new modification of the functional constraints method. Some of the results are extended to nonlinear delay reaction-diffusion equations with time-varying delay = (t). We also present exact solutions to more complex, three-dimensional delay reactiondiffusion equations of the formut = div[G(u)u] F(u,w).Most of the solutions obtained involve free parameters, so they may be suitable for solving certain problems as well as testing approximate analytical and numerical methods for non-linear delay PDEs.
