UNIVERSITARIAN REMEMBERS HIS ORIGIN
UNIVERSITARIAN REMEMBERS HIS ORIGIN
YSU alumnus Mamikon Mnatsakanyan has become the author of many innovations in mathematics.

Back in the Soviet era, he had moved to the USA and published a book “New Horizons in Geometry” co-authored with the famous Greek scientist Tom Apostol. This book became a revolution in the field of mathematics.

 

Mamikon Mnatsakanyan has delivered lectures at Yerevan State University and used to be one of the leaders in the field of astrophysics. In student years he developed and introduced the famous mathematicians of that times theory “Visula Calcules”, which, however, was not accepted by them.

 

Finally, the theory of young intelligent man was noticed by the prominent astrophysicist Victor Hambardzumyan, with whom Mamikon Mnacakanyan worked at the Byurakan Observatory. By Hambardzumyan’s instruction the theory of young genius was published in the periodical of the Armenian Academy of Sciences, which later opened new ways and horizons for the scientist.

 

In 1988, after the devastating earthquake in Armenia Mamikon Mnatsakanyan began to study seriously the seismic safety issues. As a result he appeared at the California Institute of Technology, where he is working so far.

 

Working abroad, Mamikon Mnatsakanyan has not forgotten YSU, where he once made his first steps. He has sent with his university friends a copy of the book with an inscription on the first page: “With appreciation to Yerevan State University (Central Library) from its graduate Mamikon for providing me with the highest education in the world”.
