DEPARTMENT OF HIGHER MATHEMATICS
The Department of Higher Mathematics has existed since the foundation of the Institute, since 1930.
The first head of the Department of Higher Mathematics was associate professor K.M. Kardashevskyi from 1930. He inevitably led the Department for more than 20 years.
From 1956 to 1962, the Department was headed by associate professor N.V. Korchinskyi.
From 1962 to 1989, the department was headed by the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Oleksandr Pylypovych Timan.
Oleksandr Pylypovych Timan was born on June 26, 1920 in the city of Zolotonosha Cherkasy region of Ukraine. In 1941 he graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics of Dnipropetrovsk University. From 1941 to 1945, he was on the fronts of the 2nd World War. He was awarded the Order of the Red Star and many medals. From 1951 to 1962, he was a professor, head of the Department of DSU. Since 1962, he was a Professor, Head of the Department of Higher Mathematics of the Dnepropetrovsk Chemical-Technological Institute.
Main scientific achievements of O.P. Timan related to the theory of functions and functional analysis, which held important results from the theory of approximation of functions. O.P. Timan’s monograph “Theory arproximation functions real variable”, which had three editions (Moscow, 1960, London-New York-Paris, 1963, Delhi, 1966) and brought him the world recognition. This monograph was included in the international series of monographs on pure and applied mathematics. Of the many thousands of names, O.P. Timan’s name was selected as one that deserved to be included in the book “Who is who of the intellectuals of the world?”, 8th edition. Professor O.P. Timan was author of 230 scientific papers, he prepared 6 doctors and 43 candidates of sciences.
From 1989 to 1997, the Department was headed by the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Valerii Mykolaiovych Pylypchuk.
Valerii Mykolaiovych Pylypchuk was born in 1953. He graduated from DSU in 1976, defended the candidate thesis in 1979, and got a doctor’s degree in 1993. He is a well-known specialist in the field of methods for studying mechanical systems. He is the author of more than 40 publications, as well as the monograph “The method of normal oscillations for essentially nonlinear systems” (1989). Under his scientific guidance, S.A. Volkova’s candidate’s thesis was defended.
From 1997 to 2001, the duties of the head of the Department were performed by: Ph.D., associate professor V.S. Konovalenkov (1997-1998); Ph.D., and by associate professor G.A. Starushenko (1998-1999).
From 1999-2001, the Department was headed by Alla Victorivna Polyshchuk, Ph.D., Associate Professor (1993). Alla Viktorovna Polischuk was born on August 21, 1959. In 1981, graduated from Dnipropetrovsk State University (now Dnipropetrovsk National University named after O. Honchar), Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics. In 1989 she defended a dissertation for a candidate’s degree in engineering science.
From 2001 to 2014 Dmytro Hehemonovych Zelentsov became the head of the Department of Higher Mathematics of the Ukrainian State University of Chemical Technology.
Dmytro Hehemonovych Zelentsov was born on January 16, 1962. In 1984 he graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of DSU. From 1984 to 1992 he worked at the Institute of VNII Mechchermet NVO Chermetmehanizatsiya. Since 1993, he was a Senior Research Fellow, NDL, Automated Testing Systems for DSU; From 1994 to 1997 – Associate Professor of the Department of Computational Mechanics and Strength of Constructions at DSU; from 1997 to 2000 – doctoral student of the same department.
From 2000 to 2001 – he was an associate professor, then head of the Department of higher mathematics and computer technologies of Dnipropetrovsk Financial and Economic Institute. He is a candidate of technical sciences since 1990. and doctor of technical sciences since 2007. Thesis on “Bearing ability and optimal design of beam-walls, plates and shells exposed to aggressive media.” In 1995, he was awarded the title of Senior Researcher in the specialty “Construction Mechanics”. In 2003, he was awarded the title of associate professor of the Department of Higher Mathematics. Under his scientific guidance, Ph.D. dissertations of assistants Khrapach Yu.O., Solodka N.O., Radul O.A., Naumenko N.Yu., Korotka L.I. were defended He is the author of more than 150 printed scientific publications, 3 monographs and 5 certificates for the registration of copyrights on a work (software product).
Since 2014 until today, the Department of Higher Mathematics of SHEI Ukrainian State University of Chemical Technology is headed by Victor Olevskyi.
Viktor Isaakovych Olevskyi was born on February 27, 1966. In 1988 graduated with honors from the Faculty of Applied Mathematics of DSU, in 1992 – correspondence postgraduate study at the Department of Higher Mathematics of Dnepropetrovsk Engineering and Construction Institute, in 1993, he defended the dissertation on “Nonlinear deformation and stability of rectangular plates and cylindrical shells under contact compression on the end with periodic heterogeneity”and received a scientific degree of the candidate of technical sciences. From 2010, V.I. Olevskyi works at SHEI USUCT at the Department of Computer Technologies and Higher Mathematics as Associate Professor, twice (in 2012 and 2015) he won the competition for the teachers of our university. During his time at the Department he published more than 80 publications, including 5 monographs. In 2015, V.I. Olevskyi successfully defended the dissertation for obtaining the degree of Doctor of Technical Sciences on the topic “Mathematical modeling of the mechanical state of shells with deviations and their use in technological processes” (Kharkiv).
