Moscow Mathematical Journal Named Most Influential Russian Journal in Mathematics of 2017
The recipients of the annual Web of Science Awards are the most influential scientists, scientific organizations and publications of the year. The Moscow Mathematical Journal has made it into the top quartile in the subject area of mathematics and was announced by jury members to be the most influential Russian scientific journal of 2017.
The Moscow Mathematical Journal is published jointly by the HSE's Faculty of Mathematics and the Independent University of Moscow. The publication is distributed throughout the world by the American Mathematical Society. The editorial staff aim to bring together various fields of mathematics and to create synergies between them. The criteria for an article to be selected include its significance to other studies, and the authors’ motivations.
The Moscow Mathematical Journal has been in the Web of Science Core Collection database for four and a half years already. The database divides each subject area into four quartiles. The Moscow Mathematical Journal was ranked in the top quartile for the subject area of mathematics, numbering among the most respected journals.
An additional measurement is the ‘Article influence score’. This is a calculation of the normalized impact factor and is used to compare journals in different disciplines. The Moscow Mathematical Journal was ranked second among all Russian journals.
‘The Moscow Mathematical Journal sets itself apart from the large number of Russian publications: it is a young, post-Soviet journal. It is published in English, and less than a third of the articles are Russian-affiliated. Furthermore, the publications which are affiliated with the publishing organizations – HSE and the Independent University of Moscow – make up about 50 of 639, indexed to date in WoS’, explains says Ivan Sterligov, director of the HSE Scientometrics Centre.
In addition to experts from the strongest mathematics centres in Russia (MSU, Steklov Mathematical Institute of RAS, ITEP, etc.), mathematicians from institutions such as MIT, Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Kyoto University, La Sorbonne and the Weizmann Institute are also published in the Moscow Mathematical Journal. According to WoS, it has published work from a total of about four hundred organizations from 47 countries.
‘There are many articles which are frequently cited. For example, Generators and Representatives of Functors in Commutative and Noncommutative Geometry has been cited 214 times according to WoS and 484 times according to Google Scholar’, adds Ivan Sterligov. In addition, the journal has a very low number of self-citations. According to WoS, of more than 4 thousand articles citing the MMJ, only 129 were among those published in the journal itself.
The Moscow Mathematical Journal is currently the leading Russian mathematical publication which is known throughout the world. Less than 600 citing articles are with Russian affiliation, and an impressive 1329 with American affiliation. The journal has been cited in more than 800 different publications, and the authors of these citing articles work in 1300 different organizations in 80 countries across the globe.
For Elena Nozdrinova, mathematics is her life's work and a realm where she discovers universal order and harmony. In her interview with the HSE Young Scientists project, she speaks about dynamical systems, the Nizhny Novgorod scientific school, and favourite pastimes that help her grow.
Researchers from the International Laboratory of Dynamical Systems and Applications at the HSE Campus in Nizhny Novgorod have discovered that the use of systems with hyperbolic solenoid attractors and repellers can lead to issues in the transmission of communication signals. The findings of this study have been published in Results in Mathematics. The research was financed by a substantial grant from the Russian Government as part of the 'Science and Universities' National Project and a further grant from the Russian Science Foundation.
On June 23, 2023, the first issue was published on the journal’s webpage under the heading ‘Mission Upward’. The journal is published online in Russian and English. In honour of this landmark event for the journal, we talked with its Chief Editor, Vera Rusinova.
Rogue waves, or killer waves, are abnormally high and deadly waves that can emerge unpredictably in open seas and along shorelines. They pose an imminent deadly threat to everyone from colossal liners and pleasure yachts to seafarers and vacationers. Scientists from the HSE campus in Nizhny Novgorod Efim Pelinovsky and Ekaterina Didenkulova have assembled a catalogue of such phenomena that occurred in the World Ocean from 2011 to 2018, identifying the areas where they are frequently documented and inflict the most substantial damage.
Students of the Engineering and Mathematics School (EMS) launched by HSE University and VK in October 2022 held a Demo Day to showcase the first results of their product- and research-based IT projects. Work on the projects has been conducted under the supervision of experts from the university and mentors from VK.
Ivan Arzhantsev has headed up the Faculty of Computer Science since it was established in 2014. He has never been a specialist in Computer Science – all his life he’s been engaged in mathematics. On his 50th birthday, he shared with HSE Life how this has helped him to lead the best HSE faculty.
HSE University Students Win Prizes at the International Mathematics Competition for University Students
The 29th International Mathematics Competition for University Students (IMC 2022) took place in early August in a mixed format in Blagoevgrad (Bulgaria) and online. Eight students of the HSE Faculty of Computer Science and the HSE Faculty of Mathematics won prizes at the competition.
Fernanda Florido-Calvo came to HSE University in Nizhny Novgorod from Chile to study mathematics. While on her two-year Master of Science in Mathematics programme, she wrote her master’s thesis and presented it at the All-Russia Contest of Diploma Thesis of Russian Mathematicians 2021, where she won two awards with full marks. Fernanda spoke to the HSE News Service about her passion for mathematics and the paths that lead to HSE University.
The speakers of the International Congress of Mathematicians, a key global mathematics event held every four years by the International Mathematical Union, have been announced. The next ICM will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, in July 2022. Five researchers from the HSE Faculty of Mathematics will present their papers at the congress.
HSE University maintains active cooperation with the Academy of Science institutes, which open joint departments at the university and provide their best experts for teaching and research. HSE News Service talked to Deputy Directors of the RAS Steklov Mathematical Institute (MIRAS) — RAS member Lev Beklemishev andSergey Gorchinskiy — about the development of mathematics in the modern world, career opportunities for graduates in mathematics, and the specifics of researchers’ work with students.
