MA (Mathematics), Moscow State University 1966
MA (Flight Dynamics and Control), Moscow Institute of Aviation Technology 1961)
From 1961 to 1972 I worked as a research engineer and then senior research fellow in the "MailBox 2365" (a typical euphimistic name in the former USSR for a research center or a plant involved in military research or production) My job was basically optimization of trajectories of military aircrafts, mainly fighters.
In 1972 I got a position of Asso. Prof. of Applied Mathematics in Moscow Inst. for Automobile and Road Construction from which I was dismissed in 1976 after having applied for emigration to Israel. It took us almost 12 years before we finally got permission to emigrate in January 1988. Since that time I am a Professor in Department of Mathematics at the Technion.
