Welington Celso de Melo (born 17 November 1946) is a Brazilian mathematician. Known for his contributions to the dynamical systems theory, he has been a full professor at Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada since 1980. Melo has written numerous papers, the most important being a complete description of the topological behavior of 1-dimensional real dynamical systems (co-authored with Marco Martens and Sebastian van Strien).[1]
