About the Institute
The scientific history of the Institute goes back to 1921
when—at the initiative of V. A. Steklov—the Institute
of Physics and Mathematics was established. After V. A. Steklov's
death in 1926 the Institute was given his name. In 1932, the Institute of Physics
and Mathematics was divided into two independent Departments,
the Mathematics Department headed by Academician
I. M. Vinogradov and the Physics Department headed by Academician
S. I. Vavilov. On April 28, 1934, at the general meeting of the
Division of Mathematical and Natural Sciences of the Academy of Sciences
of the USSR, a decision was made to transform the Departments of the Steklov
Institute of Physics and Mathematics into independent Institutes,
the Steklov Mathematical Institute and the Lebedev Physical Institute.
Ivan Matveevich Vinogradov and Sergei Ivanovich Vavilov became the
Directors of these new founded Institutes.
The Institute is working under scientific, methodological and organizational
leadership of the Division of Mathematical Sciences of RAS.
Scientific investigations are carrying out on six programs
of the Division of Mathematical Sciences of RAS which cover
thirty two subjects. The list of subjects for scientific
investigations in Steklov Mathematical Institute of RAS is approved by the
Division of Mathematical Sciences of RAS.
Steklov Mathematical Institute is regularly publishing its own journal
"Proceedings of the Steklov Institute of Mathematics".
The All-Institute Seminar is working in Steklov Mathematical Institute.
The sessions of the seminar take place on the third Thursday of every
month at 16 o'clock in the conference
hall of the Institute situated on the 9th floor. In this seminar,
participants attend lectures and discuss the most interesting results,
mostly those obtained by research fellows of Steklov Mathematical Institute.
Anyone is welcome to join to the work of this free entrance seminar.
