The Swedish engineer and
entrepreneur Alfred Nobel who initiated the prize of his name, denied the representatives
of the most sophisticated of precise sciences the right to aspire to it, although
mathematics has gone ahead a great deal from the first primitive notions of numbers and a
line as the shortest distance between two points to discovering such global
characteristics today which are near to exhaustive.
Mathematicians did not take offence at Nobel and at first came up with a hypothesis
that Alfred was taking revenge on them because one of their kind had won over his bride.
Later mathematicians organised their own prizes, in particular - one of the most
prestigious prizes - the Lobachevsky prize: today the winners of this prize are no less
honoured than the Nobel prize winners.
Our fellow citizen Aleksey Vasilyevich Pogorelov is one of those who were awarded this
elite prize. It should be noted here that both before and after that he received all kind
of awards that a scientist can possibly be given. Experts call this phenomenon by applying
to this prominent geometrician the word - genius.
A genius among us - anyone would consider that wonderful. Even Aleksey Vasilyevich's
appearance is somehow remarkable - he is tall, well built, handsome, with eyes full of
inner strength and kindness... This is how his colleagues, friends, pupils, fellow
citizens see him. Every time you meet with him makes you fresh and excited. Lucky are
those who can immediately communicate with Pogorelov because he wins people over with the
brilliancy of his wit, his wonderful sense of humor, because he inspires good spirits and
If the theory of total biofield is at least partly true, then the positive
environmental energy is mostly generated by people like him, that is people of similar
righteousness and firmness of purpose.
Whatever curves Aleksey Vasilyevich chooses to follow amid boundless mathematical
expanse, his life has never known U turns.
