Person: Manin, Yuri Ivanovich
Yuri Ivanovich Manin was a Soviet mathematician, known for work in algebraic geometry and diophantine geometry. He also wrote on mathematical logic, computing and theoretical physics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 In 1963 Manin submitted his habilitation thesis to the Steklov Mathematical Institute and two years later, in 1965, he was appointed Professor of Algebra at Moscow State University.
 Manin presented a paper Rational surfaces and Galois cohomology in which he gave a survey of results, mainly due to himself, on classifying rational algebraic surfaces.
 The breadth of Manin's contributions have been remarkable.
 Let us look now at some of the books that Manin has published.
 In 1984 Manin published Linear algebra and geometry in Russian, it was translated into English in 1997.
 Manin, in collaboration with A A Panchishkin, published Introduction to number theory in Russian in 1990 (English translation 1995, with a second edition in 2005).
 Other books by Manin include Cubic forms: algebra, geometry, arithmetic (Russian) (1972), A course in mathematical logic (1977), Computable and noncomputable (Russian) (1980), Quantum groups and noncommutative geometry (1988), Topics in noncommutative geometry (1991), Frobenius manifolds, quantum cohomology, and moduli spaces (1999).
 In our list above we have not mentioned Manin's fascinating book Mathematics and physics (1981).
 Manin has received, and continues to receive, many hoours for his outstanding mathematicl contributions.
 Three issues of the Moscow Mathematical Journal where dedicated to Manin for his 65th birthday.
 Manin has published research and expository papers in literature, linguistics, glottogenesis, mythology, semiotics, physics, history of culture, and philosophy of science.
Born 16 February 1937, Simferopol, Crimean Autonomous Soviet Republic (now Ukraine  occupied by Russia). Died 8 January 2023.
