(1948), Математика в СССР за тридцать лет 1917–1947 (in Russian), МоскваЛенинград: Государственное Издательство Физико–Математическои Литературы, p. 1044 . The "Mathematics in the USSR during its first thirty years 1917–1947" is an opus describing the developments of Soviet mathematics during the first thirty years of its existence. It consists of several survey articles, authored by Soviet experts and reviewing briefly the contributions of Soviet mathematicians to a chosen field during the years from 1917 to 1947: it was later expanded as the two volume survey (Kurosh et al 1959a, 1959b).

The "Mathematics in the USSR during its first forty years 1917–1957" is an opus in two volumes describing the developments of Soviet mathematics during the first forty years of its existence. This is the first volume, titled "Survey articles" and consists exactly of such kind of articles authored by Soviet experts and reviewing briefly the contributions of Soviet mathematicians to a chosen field, during the years from 1917 to 1957.

The "Mathematics in the USSR during its first forty years 1917–1957" is an opus in two volumes describing the developments of Soviet mathematics during the first forty years of its existence. This is the second volume, titled "Biobibliography" (evidently an acronym for biography and bibliography), containing a complete bibliography of works published by Soviet mathematicians during that time period, alphabetically ordered with respect to author's surname and including, when possible, brief but complete biographies of the authors.
