40 Years in Mathematical Physics
- About the Author
This is a collection of Prof L D Faddeev's important lectures, papers and talks. Some of these have not been published before and some have, for the first time, been translated from Russian into English. The topics covered correspond to several distinctive and pioneering contributions of Prof Faddeev to modern mathematical physics: quantization of Yang-Mills and Einstein gravitational fields, soliton theory, the many dimensional inverse problem in potential scattering, the Hamiltonian approach to anomalies, and the theory of quantum integrable models. There are also two papers on more general aspects of the interrelations between physics and mathematics as well as an autobiographical essay.
L D Faddeev was born in 1934 in Leningrad, USSR (now St Petersburg, Russia), and his personal and scientific life have been closely connected with that city. He graduated from Leningrad University in 1959 and has since been occupying a research position in the Leningrad (or St Petersburg) Branch of the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Soviet (now Russian) Academy of Sciences.
