History of the Department
The Department of Mathematical Physics was founded in 1969 by Academician of the USSR Academy of Sciences Prof. V. S. Vladimirov. The first research staff of the Department included several members from the Department of Theoretical Physics
(S. S. Khoruzhii and B. M. Stepanov)
and from the Department of Differential Equations
(V. P. Mikhailov, A. A. Dezin, V. N. Maslennikova,

In 1970 the Laboratory of Partial Differential Equations
was founded in the Department under the direction of V. P. Mikhailov.
