A corresponding member of Academy of Sciences of
USSR M.I.Kargapolov was the first who
had an idea to orginize new universites in Siberia.
He managed the chair of algebra and logic at Novosibirsk
State University that time ( early in 7th decade) . This
idea had been supported by scientists of Siberia depatment of Academy
of Sciences and by Omsk, Tyumen, Altay regions heads.
In the same years young
but very strong mathematicians were finishing postgra
duate courses of Novosibirsk State University. Many of
them became the first teachers at
the mathematical faculty. G.P.Kukin, M.V.Horoshevskiy
were the first algebraists at the Omsk State University. V.A. Romankov
soon joined them. Then G.A. Grishkov came to work
there.In 1978 the academic institute of mathematical type was orginized
inOmsk. So V.N.Remeslennikov
started to work at the chair of algebra. He was a Doctor
and professor than bat the best works he wrote in Omsk,of course.
Quite young
mathematicians came together with him. They are A.G.Myasnikov,
A.V.Borovik, A.R.Krasnikov.A simple list of the names
makes specialists respeet high scientific potencial of the chair.Many of
its graduates are Masters of Science who work at the institutes of
Omsk. They are O.V.Goteluk, V.G.Shantarenko, V.I.Epanchincev
and other.
Talanted young people
are sure to continue the good tradition of the chair.It started training
of postgraduates S.A.Agalakov, A.G.Pshnichniy, G.A.Kryagovskih,A.S.Shtern
were the first who defended their thesises of algebra.
The series of young talanted mathematicians followed
them. A.N.Zubkov was the first
graduate from mathematical faculty of the Omsk
State University who defended his thesis. This time the chair is a foundation
of Counsil of defence of Master'sthesises of algebra and logic. It's "Algebraic
seminar" celebrated its fivehundredth conference a long time ago. Working
at the chair of algebra many teachers take a good school as organizers.
And now 5 from 8 chairs of mathematical
faculty are managed by former teachers of the chair of
algebra.
