To 50th anniversary of B.Verkin ILTPE

International Conference

“Geometry "in large", topology and applications",

devoted to the 90-th anniversary of Alexey Vasilievich Pogorelov

June 22-27, 2009, Kharkiv, Ukraine

List of participants

3d March, 2009 is the 90th birthday of Alexey Vasilievich Pogorelov, an outstanding mathematician of the XX century. A.V. Pogorelov started his scientific work in Kharkov, first at Kharkov State University and then continued it at the Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering of NAS of Ukraine, where he was at head of the Geometry Department for over 40 years. A.V. Pogorelov's works are concerned with geometry "in large" and its application to mechanics of shells.
