QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnQuoteAdditionally, there are numerous topics in modern math with undervalued and/or little-known russian articles/books.Traditionally, the language barrier was an issue. In the field of numerical analysis, for example in the 70s if you knew Russian you could find methods that were rediscovered in the West 20 years later.Ex.ADI method fell into disuse very quickly but they still kept the name even though it is Soviet Splitting (Marchuk, Janenko).EU universities still use ADI.The Craig_Sneyd 1989 was due to Samarski 1964.Most of the students here used those Russian schemes. Two of them wrote a book that was translated into Russian. I have many Russian maths books.Exactly. But beware of bad carma of some of them: several of soviet scientists were involved in communist or rocket-nuclear activity. Some of them ended badly - Janenko, for example. Gantmacher wrote to KGB about another mathematician Kravchuk, Kravchuk ended in Gulag, but after that Gantmacher also ended badly in Moscow (you can call it God's hand).Kravchuk Polynomials:Kravchuk polynomials
