AND RIGID BODIES DYNAMICS" (September 7-9, 1999, Donetsk, Ukraine)
Secretary of the Organizing Committee
This Conference continues a tradition of International
Conferences on problems of stability, control and analitical mechanics,
which are regulary holding in Donetsk beginning from 1968. The given Conference
was timed to the 75th year from birth of professor P.V. Kharlamow. Professor
P. V. Kharlamow is the correspondent member of the Ukrainian National Academy
of Scienses and the founder of the Donetsk school of analitical mechanics.
The Conference was organized by the Institute of Applied Mathematics and
Mechanics of National Academy of Scienses of Ukraine together with Donetsk
The Chaiman of the Organizing Committee
was professor A.M. Kovalev and the Chairman of the International Scientific
Committee was professor P.V. Kharlamow.
It was submitted 108 papers from 11 contries
to the Corference. Actually it was listened 4 plenary lectures and 68 presentations
in 3 sections.
There were presented such scientific centres
of Ukraine as Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk. Among Russian
cities Moscow and Taganrog had the most presentation. Also there were scientists
from Bolivia, Iran, Mexico.
The following papers were listend and
discussed at Plenary Sessions:
1. P.V. Kharlamov (Donetsk), Galiley as
the founder of modern mechanics.
2. V.M. Matrosov and I.A. Finogenko (Moscow),
Analitical dynamics of solid bodies systems with friction.
3. V.V. Beletsky (Moskow), Applied problems
of dynamical billiards.
4. D.V. Lebedev and A.I. Tkachenko (Kiev),
Magnetic system of stabilization and navigation of the microsputnik.
The main scientific topics of the section
1. Dynamics of rigid body and rigid bodies
2. Stability and Control in dynamical
3. Methods of rigid body dynamics in the
theory of elasticity and the adjacent problems.
The most number of communications was
done in the 2nd section.
All participants showed a great interest
to the Round Table Discussion "Dynamics of rigid body: past, present, future",
which was held during the Conference. The 8th International Conference
"Stability Control and Rigid Bodies Dynamics" is planning to be held in
Donetsk in 3 years, in 2002.
