Person: Krylov (2), Nikolai Mitrofanovich
Nikolai Krylov was a Russian mathematician who published over 200 papers on analysis and mathematical physics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- He held this post until 1922 when he moved to Kiev on being appointed chairman of the mathematical physics department of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences (in fact renamed the All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in the year before Krylov was appointed).
- Krylov published over 200 papers on analysis and mathematical physics.
- The most famous publication of Krylov and Bogolyubov is their book Introduction to nonlinear mechanics, published in Kiev in 1937.
- Before publishing this book with Bogolyubov, in 1931 Krylov had published the important monograph Les méthodes de solution approchée des problèmes de la physique mathématique.
- All of Krylov's works emphasise computational aspects, motivations, and applications.
- In 1939 Krylov and Bogolyubov published Sur les équations de Focker-Planck déduites dans la théorie des perturbations à l'aide d'une méthode basée sur les propriétés spectrales de l'hamiltonien perturbateur (Application à la mécanique classique et à la mécanique quantique).
- Finally let us mention three papers published by Krylov in 1947.
- In 1928 Krylov was elected to the USSR Academy of Sciences and in 1939 he became an honoured scientist of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.
