On 20 September, the jury of the 5th competition for the grants of the Government of the Russian Federation for the state support of research conducted by the leading scientists in universities, research institutions, and state research centres, announced their list of 40 winners, one of them being the VSU team of researchers headed by professor Victor G. Zvyagin, director of the Research Institute for Mathematics. This achievement is another step in the development and promotion of the world famous Voronezh school of mathematics, founded by such prominent scientists as M.A. Krasnosel'ski and S.G. Krein. The project proposed by the researchers will be supervised by professor Pavel Plotnokov, associate member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
There were in total over 500 participants, of whom the jury selected 40 winners. To date, this grant is the first one received by any university of the Central Black Earth Region in any research area.
“Out of the 40 winning projects in various research fields, two projects are in mathematics, including the VSU project “Studying the problems of mathematical hydrodynamics”. The theme of the project has always been important in the history of mathematics. Many of the great Russian mathematicians – including Selim Krein – worked on this problem,” – said professor Zvyagin.
