International Conference MSTA-IV
«Modern Stochastics: Theory and Applications. IV»
From a student to an academician

In May 2018 at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv there was held the International Scientific Conference MSTA-IV «Modern Stochastics: Theory and Applications. IV».

The Conference «Modern Stochastics: Theory and Applications. IV» was dedicated to the 100-th anniversary of the prominent Ukrainian mathematician Iosif Ilyich Gikhman (26.05.1918-30.07.1985), one of the founders of Ukrainian probabilistic school. Iosif Ilyich had been working at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv since 1948 untill 1966 as Assistant Professor, Professor and the Head of the Deapartment of Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics.

Co-organizers of the Conference: Plenary Lectures and Sections of the Conference were held at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics and at the Faculty of Computer Science and Cybernetics.

118 scientists (aged 21 to 93 years old!) from 10 countries, namely: Belarus, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, USA, participated in the Conference.

The largest number of participants in the Conference were Ukrainians representing 15 Ukrainian universities and academic institutions. This indicates the great scientific potential of Ukraine in the field of probability theory and its applications.

Among the speakers of the conference, there were two academicians of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Volodymyr Semenovych Koroliuk and Igor Mykolaiovych Kovalenko, 90 professors, doctors and candidates of sciences, 17 post-graduate students and 3 students.

During the Conference, 19 plenary lectures were given and 6 sections were held, in which 71 reports were presented:
  • Stochastic processes in functional spaces
  • Fractional calculus and stochastic differential equations
  • Complex dynamical systems
  • Statistics of stochastic processes and random fields
  • Fractal analysis of singular probability measures and its applications
  • Applications of probability and statistics
Within the framework of the Conference, there was organized a meeting with the staff of the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Informatics of Pavlo Tychyna Uman State Pedagogical University and the solemn laying of flowers to the memorial plaque of Iosif Ilyich Gikhman in the city of Uman

Co-chairs of the Organizing Committee Yuliya Mishura and Yuriy Kozachenko are sincerely grateful to all the participants who attended the Conference and presented talks!

And a special thanks to the friendly team that worked on the preparation and realization of MSTA-IV: the Head of the research laboratory, Professors, Senior scientific Researchers, Associate Professors, Junior scientific Researchers, Assistant Professors, Postdoctoral Students, Engineers, Laboratory Assistants, PhD Students and Students!
