History of Leningrad mathematics in the first half of the 20th century
Pages: 47 – 63
The first half of the 20th century in the history of Russian mathematics is striking with a combination of dramaticism, sometimes a tragedy, and outstanding achievements. The paper is devoted to the St. Petersburg-Leningrad Mathematical School. It is based on a chapter in the multi-author monograph “Mathematical Petersburg: History, Science, Sights”, edited by G.I. Sinkevich and A.I. Nazarov, SPb: Educational projects, 2018.
