QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnCuchulainn, sometimes your several postings about soviet science are bordering with delight. I am far from the idea that you are really enjoining soviet science, expecially after your funny pics about analogy between soviet methods an "normal science" methods, with pictured soviet and western aircrafts. Really, it is true, it can not be depicted better. I can say that in my opinion this "delight" is rather from "It is amazing that in that communist society with no running hot water in houses - there are still signs of real science, including serious math!". This is my view of that "delight" from outside persons. Guys, I understand that, but INSIDE the communist system that WAS NOT FUNNY. And let me assure you that real precious diamonds for math and for time-series prediction (fin-tech) of soviet-era science are digged not in PR-ed scientists like Kolmogorov (stupid probability axioms, along with his "invention" of moronistic communistic "internats" for talented kids, cut far from their happy child life, parents and friends), not in famous Kotelnikov's works (cryptography; sampling theorem, based on Fourier), but in works by little-known in russia-soviet era scientists.For example: = E. Slutsky (random time-series) graduated from Kiev University, worked in Moscow, now his works are heavily re-considered in Kiev and Moscow. Some of his works were declined by Pierson in journal, now re-published in a large book in Russia and Ukraine;Eugen_Slutsky= Bunyakovsky, the author of Cauchy?Bunyakovsky?Schwarz inequality. He was born in a small town Bar in Ukraine, 90 km from me now, later became famous in Russia. He is also an author of pre-Pierson fundamental work on probability: "Foundations of the mathematical theory of probability," which was published in 1846;Viktor_Bunyakovskyetc. etc.
