It provides modifications in mathematical types and makes a speciality of Soviet mathematicians who frequently mentioned "what to do" instead of "how to do it". therefore, the booklet can be valued past old documentation.

The editor, Professor Yakov Sinai, a exceptional Russian mathematician, has taken pains to choose prime Russian mathematicians — resembling Lyapunov, Luzin, Egorov, Kolmogorov, Pontryagin, Vinogradov, Sobolev, Petrovski and Krein — and their most vital works. you could, for instance, locate works of Lyapunov, which parallel these of Poincaré; and works of Luzin, whose research performs an important position within the background of Russian arithmetic; Kolmogorov has proven the rules of chance in keeping with research.
