## A.T Fomenko's parents:

Father Timofey Grigorievich Fomenko |
Mother Valentina Polikarpovna |

A wife, Tatiana Nikolaevna (Schelokova), was born in Frunze, mathematician, studied in Voronezh State University, doctor of physical-mathematical sciences, professor of the department of general mathematics of the faculty of numerical mathematics and cybernetics of the MSU, the author of mathematical books and co-author of several chronological books of Anatoly Timofeevich.

After graduation from the postgraduate study since 1969 A.T.Fomenko worked at the department of differential geometry of mechanical-mathematical faculty of the MSU. In the same 1969 he defended his Ph.D. thesis on the topic:

«Classification of totally geodesic manifolds, realizing nontrivial cycles in Riemannian homogeneous spaces», and in 1972 — Doctoral thesis on the topic «Solution of multidimensional Plateau problem on the Riemannian manifolds» (speciality — «Differential geometry, topology, calculus of variations»). In 1980 he became a professor of the department of higher geometry and topology, and in 1992 — the head of the department of differential geometry and applications.

A.T.Fomenko is an award winner of the prize of Moscow mathematical society (1974), prize in mathematics of the Presidium of the AS of the USSR (1987), award winner of the State Prize (in the field of mathematics) of the Russian Federation (1996).

On December 15, 1990 Anatoly Timofeevich was chosen a corresponding member of the AS of the USSR at the Department of Mathematics. In 1991 he was chosen an actual member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS), in 1993 he was chosen an actual member of the Academy of Science of the Higher School, on March 31, 1994 he was chosen an actual member (academician) of the RAS. In March 2009 he was chosen an actual member of the ATS RF (Academy of Technological Sciences of RF).

## Main directions of scientific research

A.T.Fomenko — is the author of more than 200 scientific publications and 30 mathematical books in the following fields:

- Variational methods in differential geometry and topology, the theory of minimal surfaces and the Plateau problem.
- Harmonic mappings.
- Integration of Hamiltonian system of differential equations.
- Integrable equations on the Lie groups and Lie algebras in mathematical physics.
- Theory of invariants of differential equations.
- Creation of the theory of new topological classification of integrable dynamical systems.
- Variational methods in differential geometry and topology, the theory of minimal surfaces and the problem of table land.
- Harmonic mapping
- Integration of Hamilton systems of differential equations Integrated equations on the groups and algebras of Lee in mathematical physics
- Theory of invariants of differential equations
- Creation of the theory of new topological classification of integrable dynamical systems Computer geometry, algorithmic methods in topology.
- Computers in three dimensional topology and geometry
- Empirical–statistical methods of research of historical texts.
- The problem of recognition of dependent historical texts, new statistical methods of dating
- Applications of natural science methods to chronology of ancient and medieval history

Together with colleagues A.T.Fomenko created and proved the principal ideas of New Chronology — a natural science theory, insisting, that traditional chronology of historical events before the XVII century AD inclusively is in its bigger part not correct, and proposing a version of its improvement (so called «Reconstruction»). New Chronology is not accepted by modern academic society of historians as a scientific discipline, and research in this field meet aggressive counter force from the side of conservative majority of humanitarians.
