Vladimir Mikhailovich Alekseev (Владимир Михайлович
Алексеев, sometimes transliterated as "Alexeyev" or "Alexeev",
17 June 1932,
Bykovo, Ramensky District, Moscow Oblast
Bykovo, Ramensky District, Moscow Oblast – 1 December
1980) was a Russian mathematician who specialized in celestial
mechanics and dynamical systems.
He attended secondary school in Moscow at one of the special schools
of mathematics affiliated with
Moscow State University
Moscow State University and
participated in several mathematical olympiads. From 1950 he studied
at the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics at the Moscow State
University, where he worked as a student of
Andrei Kolmogorov on the
asymptotic behavior in the three-body problem of celestial mechanics.
Already as an undergraduate, Alekseev proved significant new results
on quasi-random motion associated with the three-body problem. This
was the subject of his dissertation for the Russian candidate degree
(Ph.D.) and then his dissertation in 1969 for the Russian doctorate
(higher doctoral degree). From 1957 he taught at Moscow State
In 1970 Alekseev was an Invited Speaker with talk Sur l´allure finale
du mouvement dans le problème de trois corps at the ICM in Nice.
Over a 20-year period, he conducted 3 ongoing seminars: with Yakov
Sinai on dynamical systeme, with V. A. Egorov on celestial mechanics,
and with M. Zelikin and V. M. Tikhomirov on variational problems and
