Education[edit] He graduated in 1950 from Moscow
State University,[1] Department of Mechanics
and Mathematics. He received his Ph.D. in 1953 from Moscow State University under the supervision of A. N. Kolmogorov.[1][2] Career and research[edit] He also received a D.Sc. from Moscow
State University in 1957.[1] He is an emeritus Professor in Residence at the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, Berkeley[3] and Mathematician
at Department of Mathematics, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.[3] He was G. I. Taylor Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Cambridge from 1992 to 1994[3] and he has been Emeritus G. I. Taylor Professor of Fluid Mechanics[3] since then. His areas of research are:[3]

Fracture mechanics The theory of fluid and gas flows in porous media The mechanics of a non-classical deformable solids Turbulence Self-similarities, nonlinear waves and intermediate asymptotics.
