History of the Department

After the foundation of Steklov Mathematical Institute in 1934, two departments of mechanics were organized: Department of Elasticity Theory headed by N. I. Muskhelishvili and Department of Continuous Media headed by N. E. Kochin. These departments were closed after the departure of N. I. Muskhelishvili to Georgia and N. E. Kochin's transition to a newly founded Institute of Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences.

Department of Mechanics at the Mathematical Institute was organized again in 1944 (headed by M. V. Keldysh). After M. V. Keldysh moved in 1953 to a newly founded Institute of Applied Mathematics, L. I. Sedov was appointed as the head of the department and he held this appointment till 1988. From 1988 to 2003 the department was headed by A. G. Kulikovskii, and from 2003 to 2011 by V. V. Kozlov. Art present the duties of the head of the department are fulfilled by S. V. Bolotin.

In 2002, the Department of Mechanics united with the Department of Statistical Mechanics which was established in 1969 under the leadership of N. N. Bogolubov (Jr). At present the staff of the Department includes members of RAS V. V. Kozlov and A. G. Kulikovskii, correspondent members of RAS N. N. Bogolubov and D. V. Treschev; doctors of phys.-math. sci. G. A. Alekseev, S. V. Bolotin, A. P. Chugainova, A. T. Il'ichev, V. V. Markov, D. P. Sankovich, candidate of phys.-math. sci. A. V. Soldatov.
