Andrey Nikolaevich Kolmogorov (Russian: Андре́й Никола́евич Колмого́ров, IPA: [ɐnˈdrʲej nʲɪkɐˈlajɪvʲɪtɕ kəlmɐˈɡorəf] ( listen), 25 April 1903 – 20 October 1987)[4][5] was a 20th-century Soviet mathematician who made significant contributions to the mathematics of probability theory, topology, intuitionistic logic, turbulence, classical mechanics, algorithmic information theory and computational complexity.[3][2][6] Contents 1 Biography 1.1 Early life 1.2 Adulthood 2 Awards and honours 3 Bibliography 4 References 5 External links Biography[edit]

In 1910, his aunt adopted him, and they moved to Moscow, where he
graduated from high school in 1920. Later that same year, Kolmogorov
began to study at the

publications (beginning in 1941) significantly influenced the field.
In classical mechanics, he is best known for the
Kolmogorov–Arnold–Moser theorem, first presented in 1954 at the
International Congress of Mathematicians. In 1957, working jointly
with his student Vladimir Arnold, he solved a particular
interpretation of Hilbert's thirteenth problem. Around this time he
also began to develop, and was considered a founder of, algorithmic
complexity theory – often referred to as Kolmogorov complexity
theory.
Kolmogorov married Anna Dmitrievna Egorova in 1942. He pursued a
vigorous teaching routine throughout his life, not only at the
university level but also with younger children, as he was actively
involved in developing a pedagogy for gifted children (in literature,
music, and mathematics). At the
