Viacheslav Zigmundovich Grines, Prof. of Fundamental Mathematics  Department in National Research University Higher School of  Economics, Nizhny Novgorod, for 47 years now has been actively engaged  in academic and educational activities, scientific seminars, lecturing  on different disciplines related to theory of dynamical systems and  history of mathematics.  

Academic achievements of V. Grines, his colleagues and disciples share  approach based on subsequent application of topological methods in  dynamics which allowed to obtain a number of fundamental results on  topological classification of important classes of dynamical systems.  

V. Grines was scientific advisor to 6 PhD theses and advisory  assistant to DSc theses of O.V. Pochinka on topological classification  of Morse-Smale diffeomorphisms on 3-manifolds.   

Recently a monograph of V.Z. Grines, T.V. Medvedev and O.V. Pochinka   "Dynamical Systems on 2- and 3-Manifolds" was published with Springer  Publishers.  V. Grines is a member of Thesis Boards at Nizhny Novgorod and Vladimir  State Universities and a member of Advisory Board of Russian  Foundation for Basic Researches.
