Anatoly Samoilenko : biography

January 2, 1938 -

Anatoly Mykhailovych Samoilenko () (born January 2, 1938) is a Ukrainian mathematician, an Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (since 1995), the Director of the Institute of Mathematics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (since 1988).

Anatoly Samoilenko was born in 1938 in the village of Potiivka, Radomyshl district, Zhytomyr region. In 1955, he entered the Geologic Department at the Shevchenko Kyiv State University. However, the extraordinary gift of Samoilenko for mathematics determined his destiny in its own way, and, instead of a known geologist, science got a prominent mathematician. In 1960, Samoilenko graduated from the Department of Mechanics and Mathematics at the Shevchenko Kyiv State University with mathematics specialization. At the same time, his first scientific works were published.

In 1963, after the graduation from the postgraduate courses at the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR, Samoilenko defended his candidate-degree thesis "Application of Asymptotic Methods to the Investigation of Nonlinear Differential Equations with Irregular Right-Hand Side" and began his work at the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR under the supervision of Academician Yu. A. Mitropolskiy. In few years of diligent research work, Samoilenko became one of the leading experts in the qualitative theory of differential equations. In 1967, based on the results of his research in the theory of multifrequency oscillations, he defended his doctoral-degree thesis "Some Problems of the Theory of Periodic and Quasiperiodic Systems", the official opponents of which were V. I. Arnold and D. V. Anosov.

In 1965–1974, Samoilenko worked as a senior research fellow at the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR and gave lectures at the Shevchenko Kyiv State University. In 1974, he obtained the professor degree. In 1978, he was elected to become a Corresponding Member of the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR. His monographN. N. Bogolyubov, Yu. A. Mitropol’skii, and A. M. Samoilenko, Method of Accelerated Convergence in Nonlinear Mechanics [in Russian], Naukova Dumka, Kiev (1969). brought him worldwide recognition. This monograph was written by Samoilenko together with his teachers, Academicians N. N. Bogolyubov and Mitropolskiy. Thirty six years later, Samoilenko reminisced, "In Kyiv, at the Institute of Mathematics, great scientists were my teachers... In many fields of science, they were 'trendsetters' on the scale of the Soviet Union. It is very important for a young scientist to belong to a serious scientific school. Probably, only in this case he has a chance to obtain results at the world level. The atmosphere of a good scientific school itself stimulates a young scientist to carry out his research work at the cutting edge of modern science. And if he suddenly opens a new direction in science, then his name immediately gains recognition".I. Bessmertnyi, "Scientists do not need freedom" [in Russian], Newspaper "2000", No. 5 (255), 04.02.2005, p. 5. http://2000.net.ua/is/101/255-c1.pdf, http://2000.net.ua/is/101/255-c5.pdf.

In 1974–1987, Samoilenko headed the Chair of Integral and Differential Equations of the Department of Mechanics and Mathematics at the Shevchenko Kyiv State University. These years were marked by especially high scientific activity of the chair. Based on results of the research in the theory of differential equations with delay performed at that time, the monographYu. A. Mitropol’skii, A. M. Samoilenko, and D. I. Martynyuk, Systems of Evolution Equations with Periodic and Quasiperiodic Coefficients [in Russian], Naukova Dumka, Kiev (1984). of Mitropolskiy, Samoilenko, and D. I. Martynyuk was published. At the same time, Samoilenko, together with his disciple M. O. Perestyuk, published the well-known monographA. M. Samoilenko and N. A. Perestyuk, Impulsive Differential Equations [in Russian], Vyshcha Shkola, Kiev (1987). devoted to the theory of impulsive differential equations. These monographs (especially their English translationsN. N. Bogoljubov, J. A. Mitropolskii, and A. M. Samoilenko, Method of Accelerated Convergence in Nonlinear Mechanics, Hindustan Publishing Corporation, Delhi (1976).A. M. Samoilenko and N. A. Perestyuk, Impulsive Differential Equations, World Scientific, Singapore (1995).Yu. A. Mitropolsky, A. M. Samoilenko, and D. I. Martinyuk, Systems of Evolution Equations with Periodic and Quasiperiodic Coefficients, Kluwer, Dordrecht (1992).) are frequently cited in scientific literature.
