Director od stability and nonlinear dynamics research center of A.A.Blagonravov
mechanical engineering research institute of  Russian Academy of Sciences,
Chairman of Mathematical Cybernetics chair of Moscow State Aviation Institute

V.M. Matrosov was born on May, 1932. He graduated from Kazan Aviation Institute in 1956. Since 1996 he has been the Director of The Centet for Stability and Nonlinear Dynamics of Mechanical Engeering Institute by A.A. Blagonravov of Russian Academy of Sciences, he is the actual member (academician) of Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), he is a Ph.D. in Mathematics and Physics, Doctor of Science in Mathematics and Physics, he is the professor, the laureate of the USSR State Prize in The Branch of Science and Technic and of The USSR Concil of Ministers Prizes, he is the distinguished specialist in the branch of the theory of  stability and control, nonlinear mechanics, applied mathematics and artificial intelligence.
V.M. Matrosov worked out the method of Vector Liapunov Function's in the theory of stability and control of nonlinear dynamic systems behavior, recognized by the world scientific community and included into the tex-books. He formulate the comparison principle for derivation of a teorems in the mathematic theory of systems. These results are priority-driven in science and got their further development in the works of many Matrosov?s students, and followers, who created the well-known scientific school in the theory of stability and control.
The results of Mantrosov and his scientific school found a wide application in the works on orientation systems of spacecrafts for communication, navigation and survey of the earth surface, on systems of stabilization for orbital stations, orbital and stratosphere telescopes, the intellectual control system of the modern fighter, in creating of computer system for analysis of the strategic stability in miltipole world.
V.M. Matrosov is the founder and the first director of Irkutsk Computing Center of Siberian Department of RAS (1975-1991).
Matrosov fulfilled the series of fundamental research for the development of methods of nonlinear analysis of complicated dynamic systems behavior, logic-dynamic systems and systems with the variable structure. The results are published in many of reports, articles and in 5 monographies, the latest of them is "V.M.Matrosov ?The Method of Liapunov?s Vector Functions: The Analysis of Nonlinear Systems Dynamic Behavior? ", M. Fizmatlit "Nauka", 2001, 384pp.
In the 90s V.Matrosov was the scientific director of International RAS-UNESKO project "Models, Methods and Software for Analysis of Global and Regional Sustainable Development", projects of GNTP "Security" on mathematic modeling of branches and regions of the contry, regarding possible technogenic and natural disasters. The results of his researches of possibilities of Russia?s tansition to the suusteinable development are used in producing an expertise and revision of the project of the strategy of Russia?s sustaniable development.
V. Matrosov is the chief author and co-editor of collective monographie: "The New Paradigm of Russia?s Development in the XXI Century: Ideas and Results. complex Investigation of Problems of Stable Development", "Academia", 1999, 460pp.
V.M. Matrosov is the Chairman of Expert-and-Consultative Concil of the Russian Parlament Comission on The Problems of Stable Development, the member of the Higher Ecologic Concil of the Ecology Commitee.
V.M. Matrosov is the member of Russian Ecologic Academy, of Academy of Social and Humanitarian Studies, of International Academy of Noosphere (Sustainable Development), he is the honorable member of Russian Academy of Cosmonautics by K.E.Tsiolkovsky, the honorable professor of Kazan State Technical University (KAI).
V.M. Matrosov is the founder and the President of Inter-regional Public Organization "The Academy of Nonlinear Sciences", connecting about 200 doctors of sciences, who personificate the leading in the world native scientific school in the branch of the theory of stability, nonlinear dynamic analysis and the theory of complicated systems control. The Academy has 7 region departments in Russian Federation, departments in the USA, France, in the Ukraine, in Jugoslavia, in the SAR, the Academy takes part in publishing of 2 international journals. The President of the Academy directs the holding of International Congresses and annual Scientific Conferences on nonlinear analysis and its applications.
