Anatoli Georgievich Vitushkin (Russian: Анато́лий Гео́ргиевич Виту́шкин) (June 25, 1931 – May 9, 2004) was a Soviet mathematician noted for his work on mathematical analysis and analytic capacity.[1]

Early life[edit]

Anatoli Georgievich Vitushkin was born on 25 June 1931 in Moscow. He was known to be blind.[2]


He entered Moscow State University in 1949 after graduating from the Tura Suvorov Military School where mathematics was taught as part of a broader education for potential officers.[3] He graduated in 1954. He studied under Andrey Kolmogorov and benefited from participation in Alexander Kronrod's circle.

He joined the Steklov Institute of Mathematics staff in 1965.

For many years he was a member of the Editorial board of the Russian journal; Mathematical Notes.

He died, at the age of 72, in Moscow on 9 May 2004.[4]
