Nikolay Bogolyubov

August 21, 1909 - February 13, 1992

Summary of Research:

Nikolay Bogolyubov mainly studied mechanics and mathematics. His earliest research focused on variation calculus and almost periodic function. Bogolyubov developed a method for quantum equations from mechanics of a molecule system. Bogolyubov formulated the microscopic theory of superfluidity in 1946. The main achievement of Bogolyubov's research was his contributions to quantum physics. Bogolyubov was able to adapt the equations involved with quantum physics in order to make it more efficient.


Nikolay Bogolyubov entered the Ph.D. program at the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR in 1925 and obtained the degree of Candidate of Sciences in 1928, at the age of 19.

Major Contributions to Physics:

In 1956 Bogolybov headed a laboratory in Dubna that's focus was on theoretical physics. Bogolybov also provided many advancements in the field of quantum physics by developing a technique to improve the equations. Nikolay Bogolyubov is also the founder on Soviet scientific schools in nonlinear mechanics and statistical physics and quantum field theory.
