A co-publication of the AMS and the London Mathematical Society

This volume contains articles on the history of
Soviet mathematics, many of which are personal accounts by
mathematicians who witnessed and contributed to the turbulent and
glorious years of Moscow mathematics. The articles in the book focus
on mathematical developments in that era, the personal lives of
Russian mathematicians, and political events that shaped the course of
scientific work in the Soviet Union. Important contributions include
an article about Luzin and his school, based in part on documents that
were released only after perestroika, and two articles on Kolmogorov.
The volume concludes with annotated bibliographies in English and
Russian for further reading.

The revised edition is appended by an article of Tikhomirov, which
provides an update and general overview of 20th-century Moscow
mathematics, and it also includes an Index of Names.

This book should appeal to mathematicians, historians, and anyone else
interested in Soviet mathematical history.
