Prof. A.T. Fomenko (born 1945), Dr. Sci. (Phys. and Math.), Moscow State University,
He is a distinguished mathematician and well-known specialist in the field of geometry, symplectic topology, Hamiltonian mechanics, calculus of variations, computer geometry and algorithmical problems in pattern recognition.
He is a winner of the State Award of Russia (1996) (in mathematics), Award of the Moscow Mathematical Society (1974), winner of the Award of the Presidium of USSR Acad. of Sci. (1987). He obtained fundamental results in the theory of minimal surfaces and solved the multidimensional Plateau's problem (the existence of globally minimal surface in each spectral bordisms class). He created a new theory of rough and fine topological classification of integrable Hamiltonian systems (of differential equations). This theory was applied to the important problem of classification of isoenergy surfaces for integrable dynamical systems arising in celestial mechanics field and in the theory of the motion of the rigid body. Fomenko with his pupils obtained the topological classification of concrete integrable systems in mathematical physics and theoretical mechanics.
He developed a new empirico-statistical methods for historical texts (e.g. chronicles) analysis.
