Markov: Integrity Is Just as Important as Scientific Merits (2007)


The Russian mathematician Markov was born 150 years ago. Many commentators have been describing his life and work but the extraordinary traits of his strong personality are much less known, especially beyond Russia. I describe this aspect of Markov's life and note that to a certain extent his character influenced his work.


Description On the Russian mathematician Andrei Markov.
