born 28 Dec 1933 in Leningrad, is a Soviet / Russian mathematician. Most famous for his joint work with Sergey V. Kerov on representations of infinite symmetric groups and applications to the longest increasing subsequences.
Vershik studied at Leningrad State University, receiving his doctoral degree in 1974; his advisor was Vladimir Rokhlin. He works at the Steklov Institute of Mathematics and at Saint Petersburg State University. In 1998–2008 he was the president of the St. Petersburg Mathematical Society. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
He joins us for a debate that has far reaching influence on science in the present state of Russia. An avid contributor to the open exchange in science, with ties to European and global research, he will raise the following issues:
- Soviet era education and the Sakharov phenomenon
- What is the reasoning of the name-giving discord in contemporary Russia, what approaches are there to mitigate it
- To which extent and how can scientists take part in Russian politics
- What are their disagreements with the paths of Putinists
