  Vladimir Arnold
Vladimir Igorevich Arnold (born June 12, 1937 in Odessa, USSR -) is one of the world's most prolific mathematicians in the field of Mechanics.
Arnold espouses a geometric approach to mathematics in general, and mechanics in particular.
Arnold works at the Steklov Mathematical Institute in Moscow and at the University of Paris IX.

Arnold and his wife, Bertha, were in Vladimir from Nov. 14 to Dec. 9 under the aegis of Canadian Executive Services Overseas (CESO) to advise the Jewish community of 1,500 on building community institutions.
Vladimir, he says, is a former Russian capital city with a history that goes back more than 1,000 years; Jews have lived in there for a very long time.
In Vladimir, the Arnolds found that the JDC helps fund the distribution of food parcels - about 400 to Jewish families on Jewish holidays, as well as about 150 on a regular basis to needy families and individuals.

 Arnold biography
Arnold continued to study as a postgraduate student at Moscow State University for his Candidate's Degree (equivalent to a Ph.D.) still with Kolmogorov as advisor.
In 1965 Arnold became a Professor in the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics at Moscow State University, a position he held until 1986 when he took up the position of Principal Researcher at the Steklov Institute of Mathematics in Moscow.
Arnold's contributions to the theory of singularities complement Thom's catastrophe theory and have transformed this field.

One novel and fascinating aspect of the book is that Arnold has edited the work many who have contributed directly to the understanding of or solutions to the problems.
Although the mathematical research originating from Arnold's problems is far from being recorded in full measure by the comments in the second part of the book, even those comments show what an enormous role these problems have played in the development of many diverse areas of mathematics since the 1960s.
In the preface to the present edition of the book, Arnold writes about his problems: ``The observed half-life of the problem (of its more or less complete solution) is about seven years on average.

Arnold's Problems contains mathematical problems which have been brought up by Vladimir Arnold in his famous seminar at Moscow State University over several decades.
This charming book by one of the leading mathematicians of our day, Vladimir Igorevich Arnold, is a rambling collection of his memories from early childhood up to recent days.
Translated from the Russian by E.J.F. Primrose "Remarkable little book." -SIAM REVIEW V.I. Arnold, who is renowned for his lively style, retraces the beginnings of mathematical analysis and theoretical physics in the works (and the intrigues!) of the great scientists of the 17th century.

Arnold's Problems contains mathematical problems brought up by Vladimir Arnold in his famous seminar at Moscow State University over several decades.
The invariable peculiarity of these problems was that Arnold did not consider mathematics a game with deductive reasoning and symbols, but a part of natural science (especially of physics), i.e.
The second part of the book is a collection of commentaries, mostly by Arnold's former students, on the current progress in the problems' solutions (featuring a bibliography inspired by them).

 Vladimir Arnold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vladimir Igorevich Arnold (Russian: Влади́мир И́горевич Арно́льд, born June 12, 1937 in Odessa, USSR) is one of the world's most prolific mathematicians.
Arnold is an outspoken critic of the trend of high levels of abstraction in mathematics during the middle of last century.
He has very strong opinions on how this approach - which was most popularly implemented by the Bourbaki school in France - initially had negative impact on French, and then later other countries', mathematical education (see [1] and other essays in [2]).

 SARACINO: CAN THE GUV BE SAVED?
The same Republican volunteers who pushed for the recall, and who helped rally voters to elect Arnold Schwarzenegger were very comfortable with the idea that this Governor was not going to be a right-winger on social issues, and that we would not see eye-to-eye on some environmental issues.
Vladimir: Arnold took the wrong message from the Special Election results and you are misinformed about the Party's support for his measures.
Arnold may be at fault for many things, but he was let down by the Republican party.

 Arnold's Problems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The present title comprises the problems that have been posed by Vladimir Igorevich Arnold during a period of over 40 years.
This is principally a fairly complete list of problems presented by him at his seminar on the theory of singularities of differentiable mappings, twice a year at the beginning of each academic term.
It is clear, however, that not all Arnold's problems have been collected so far, and we would be grateful to those readers who will report to us any problems not appearing in the present list.

 Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem
The solution to this problem was given by Andrey Nikolaevich Kolmogorov in 1954.
This was extended and proved by Vladimir Arnold (1963 for Hamiltonian systems[?]) and Moser (1962 for Twist maps[?]), and the general answer is known as the KAM theorem.
The KAM theorem can be applied to astronomical three-body problems.

He established a variational principle which states that {\it on the set of all `isovortical flows' of an ideal fluid the kinetic energy attains its stationary values at steady flows}.
In this lecture we present Arnold's principle in a simplest possible way and give its generalizations for more sophisticated systems such as stratified fluid, magneto-hydrodynamics and dynamical systems 'solid+fluid'.
All considerations are based on a new form of the {\it 'isovorticity conditions'} which are formulated in the spirit of early Arnold's papers.

 SCIENTIFIC COUNTER-REVOLUTION IN MATHEMATICS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
– as Vladimir Arnold writes, in particular, - the possessing a large influence mafia of "left-hemispheric mathematicians" has managed to eliminate the geometry from the mathematical education (at first in France, and then also in other countries), by replacing all informal part of this discipline by training in a formal manipulation by abstract concepts...
Therefore to object to natural rushing of mathematics to the maximal common, abstract-theoretical description "of an objective reality" means, using a known comparison of D.Hilbert, "to take away a telescope from an astronomer or to prohibit to the boxers to use their fists".
Nevertheless, certainly it is difficult to argue with Arnold and many other mathematicians, who consider that super-abstractionism ("bourbakism", in Arnold's terms) of modern mathematics has led to that that two mathematicians working in neighbor rooms, can not already understand each other.

All that he asks, is that the reader have an inquiring mind.

 Differential Geometry (250) graduate course, Fall 2005
On teaching mathematics, a provocative article by Vladimir Arnold.
Arnold's book may not appear directly relevant, but his completely geometric presentations of many concepts (especially his appendix B on Riemannian geometry) are wonderfully clear and sadly rare in mathematical literature.
This is a classic and brilliant book by a champion of the organic "Newtonian" (otherwise known as "Russian") approach to mathematics - and a sworn enemy of tedious Bourbakiste abstraction.

I personally am much more disturbed by another phenomenon, pointed out by I.M. Gel'fand and propagated by Vladimir Arnold in a lecture of his that is available on the web, which is the stunning contrast between the relevance of mathematics to physics, and its amazing lack of relevance to biology!
