Victor Vladimirovich Goryunov is a Russian mathematician. He is a leading figure in Singularity theory, whose contributions to the subject are fundamental.[1] He has published several books and a vast variety of papers in singularity theory, Finite type invariants, and Legendrian knots. Many of his papers in Lagrangian and Legendrian geometry are now considered to be classical in the subject.[1]
