Person: Livsic, Mikhail Samuilovich
Moshe Livsic was a Ukrainianborn mathematician who worked in functional analysis.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Livsic graduated from school in 1931 and, with a school friend, planned his future studies.
 However to be successful in the physical sciences Livsic and his friend would first have to become knowledgeable in mathematics.
 Livsic began studies at Odessa technical College aimed at his becoming a radio technician but, in 1933, he entered the Department of Physics and Mathematics at Odessa State University.
 Livsic took part in the functional analysis seminar and studied analytic functions.
 After working at Kirovograd, Livsic returned to Odessa to teach at the Hydrometerological Institute which was a minor institution.
 From 1957 until 1962 Livsic was head of mathematics at Kharkov Mining Institute, joining Akhiezer at Kharkov State University in 1962.
 His recent breakthroughs in the theory of characteristic functions for several commuting operators indicate that in spite of his seventy years, mathematically Moshe is still a young man.
Born 4 July 1917, Pokotilova (near Uman), Ukraine. Died 30 March 2007, Be’er Scheva, Israel.
