Anatoly Timofeevich Fomenko

А.Т.ФоменкоAnatoly Timofeevich Fomenko was born on March 13th, 1945 in Donetsk. Soon in 1950 together with his family he moved on the Far East to Magadan, where he went to school. Then in 1959 family of Fomenko moved to Lugansk and Anatoly went to school №26, which he finished with a gold medal. Being a pupil, he was interested in mathematics and biology, in 1956 and 1959 got 3 bronze medals of VDNKh (Exhibition of Economic Achievements), was the winner of All-Soviet Union distance Academic Olympics on mathematics. All-Soviet Union children newspaper «Pioneer Pravda» in 1958 (№ 104) and in 1959 (№№ 1–2, 4–6) published his fantastic story «Miracle of the Milky Way» about a space travel to 2020 year. The father of Anatoly Timofeevich, Timofey Grigorievich (1910–1992), is from Zaporozhye Cossacks, a talented engineer in coal mining and ore mining fields, candidate of technical sciences (1954), author of 15 monographs, 150 scientific articles, several detective novels, worked in Donetsk, Magadan, then in Lugansk institute «UkrSRIcoalwashing». Mother — Valentina Polikarpovna Markova (1918-2009), married Timofey Grigorievich at the end of 1943 in occupied by Germans Donetsk. She has philological education, worked as teacher of Russian language and literature, she was fond of drawing and it became a hobby of her son too. The parents of Anatoly Timofeevich supported him in his new chronology work, and were his co-authors in 1983 and 1996.

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.

In 1962–1967 Anatoly Timofeevich studied at the mechanical-mathematical faculty of the MSU first under scientific supervision of a famous mechanic Valentin Vitalievich Rumyantsev (academician of the RAS, head of the department of theoretical mechanics of mechanical-mathematical faculty of the MSU), on the 4th course he moved to mathematical department, where he became a student of an outstanding Soviet geometrician, professor Petr Konstantinovich Rashevskiy (head of the department of differential geometry of the mechanical-mathematical faculty of the MSU). Being a student of the 5th course, Anatoly Fomenko became a co-author of the book «Homotopic topology » (the first part was written together with V.L. Gutenmakher, the second — with D. B. Fuks). Anatoly Timofeevich — the author of illustrations in this book, which is a scientific rarity. The book was translated in 1986 in Budapest into English and in 1990 into Japanese in Tokyo.
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).

А.Т.ФоменкоMain directions of scientific research

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

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.
