HistoryEdit

Formally, the Mathematical Division of Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering was established by a decree of the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR dated October 5, 1987. However, the mathematical departments appeared at the Institute almost simultaneously with its foundation in 1960. At that time there were 5 mathematical departments in the Institute:

In the mathematical departments of the Institute at various times had worked and work now such well-known mathematicians as Yuri Aminov, Vladimir Drinfeld, Alexandr Eremenko, Boris Levin, Anatoly Milka, Iosif Ostrovskii, Leonid Pastur, Lev Ronkin, Fedor Rofe-Beketov, Mikhail Sodin, Yeugen Kruslov, Maria Scherbina, and others.

In 1990, Vladimir Drinfeld, who worked at the Mathematical Division from 1981 to 1999, was awarded by Fields Medal. [2]
