Gregori Margulis was educated at Moscow High School, graduating in 1962. In that year he began his undergraduate studies at Moscow University and he was awarded his first degree in 1967. Margulis remained at Moscow University for his postgraduate studies. He showed great potential as a mathematician and the first important award which he won was during his time as a postgraduate student when he received the young mathematicians prize from the Moscow Mathematical Society in 1968. Margulis completed his graduate studies in 1970 and he was awarded the degree of Candidate of Science for a thesis On some problems in the theory of U-systems.
After being awarded the Candidate of Science degree (the equivalent of a British or American Ph.D.), Margulis began to work in the Institute for Problems in Information Transmission. He was a Junior scientific worker there from 1970 to 1974 when he was promoted to Senior scientific worker. He held this post until 1986 when he was promoted again, this time to Leading scientific worker. International honour was given to Margulis in 1978 when he was awarded a Fields Medal at the International Congress at Helsinki. However it was not a happy occasion for Margulis who was not permitted by the Soviet authorities to travel to Helsinki to receive the Medal. Tits, delivering the address [7] spoke of his sadness that Margulis could not be present:-

    Historical Introduction
    This is the original letter by Fields creating the endowment for the medals that bear his name. It is thought to have been written during the few months before his death. Notice that no mention is made about the age of the recipients (currently there is a 40 year-old limit), and that the medal should not be attached to any person, private or public, meaning that it shouldn't bear anybody's name. It is proposed to found two gold medals to be awarded at successive International Mathematical Congress for outstanding achievements in mathematics. Because of the multiplicity of the branches of mathematics and taking into account the fact that the interval between such congresses is four years it is felt that at least two medals should be available. The awards would be open to the whole world and would be made by an International Committee. The fund for the founding of the medals is constituted by balance left over after financing the Toronto congress held in 1924. This must be held in trust by the Government or by some body authorized by government to hold and invest such funds. It would seem that a dignified method for handling the matter and one which in this changing world should most nearly secure permanency would be for the Canadian Government to take over the fund and appoint as his custodian say the Prime Minister of the Dominion or the Prime Minister in association with the Minister of Finance. The medals would be struck at the Mint in Ottawa and the duty of the custodian would be simply to hand over the medals at the proper time to the accredited International Committee.

    Two Two French-born Nobel Laureates participated in the Adriatico Research Conference on Interaction and Assembly of Biomolecules that took place from 27-31 August. Pierre-Gilles de Gennes , who lectured on "Artificial Muscles," is a professor at the College de France in Paris. A 1991 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics, he is known as the 'prophet of soft matter.' Jean-Marie Lehn , who was awarded the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, lectured on "Supramolecular Engineering through Programmed Self-Organization." Lehn, who teaches at the Universite Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, France, received an honorary degree from the University of Trieste last May.
    Four Four Fields Medallists recently gave lectures at ICTP. Alain Connes Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques , Bures-sur-Yvette, France, who received the Fields Medal in 1982 for his contributions to the theory of operator algebras, spoke in March at the Workshop on Quantum Field Theory, Noncommutative Geometry and Quantum Probability.

    La matemática actual tiene abiertos fecundos campos de un gran interés. Los grandes matemáticos de la segunda mitad del siglo XX y hasta nuestros días intentan el desarrollo de una matemática acorde con el tiempo en que vivimos, capaz de afrontar el reto que representa la tendencia social tanto como el progreso de las necesidades computacionales de las nuevas ingenierías o el avance vertiginoso de algunas disciplinas como la Astrofísica y la Computación Teórica. Mostramos aqui algunas referencias a su trabajo, utilizando diversas fuentes de datos, entre las que podemos destacar, por su excelente documentación, la base de datos de la Universidad de St. Andrews, Escocia. Es una somera indicación del quehacer en la disciplina de matemáticos de extraordinaria calidad, algunos de ellos prematuramente fallecidos, que nacieron en los últimos años de la década de los 40, en plena devastación, terminada ya la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

    FEBRUARY 24 - BIRTHS Gregori Aleksandrovich Margulis
    Born 24 Feb 1946
    Russian mathematician who was awarded the Fields Medal in 1978 for his contributions to the theory of Lie groups, though he was not allowed by the Soviet government to travel to Finland to receive the award. In 1990 Margulis immigrated to the United States. Margulis' work was largely involved in solving a number of problems in the theory of Lie groups. In particular, Margulis proved a long-standing conjecture by Atle Selberg concerning discrete subgroups of semisimple Lie groups. The techniques he used in his work were drawn from combinatorics, ergodic theory, dynamical systems, and differential geometry. Henri Frankfort
    Born 24 Feb 1897; died 16 Jul 1954.
    Dutch-American archaeologist who completed a well-documented reconstruction of ancient Mesopotamian culture, established the relation between Egypt and Mesopotamia, and discovered much new information on both civilizations. From the late 1920s to the early 1950s, Frankfort's research into the prehistoric and dynastic cultures of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia was at the forefront of archaeological scholarship. At Abydos, in 1925, Frankfort resumed work which had been started by Naville at the Osireion, the enigmatic structure behind the temple of Seti. Out of this excavation arose a project to record the fine reliefs of the temple of Seti itself.
