I am a graduate of Moscow School for Mathematics No 2 (web site in Russian), class of 1981
PhD received in 1989 from Moscow State University
Research |
Areas of interest:
-projective differential geometry (Schwarzian derivative,...);
-discrete integrable systems (Pentagram map,...);
-algebraic combinatorics (Coxeter friezes, square identities,...);
-cohomology of Lie algebras of vector fields and diffeomorphism groups (Virasoro algebra, modules of differential operators on smooth manifolds,...);
-graded commutative algebras (quaternions, octonions, Lie antialgebras,...).
Together with Christian Duval and Pierre Lecomte we developed equivariant quantization.
