Mishin,.V.I. Nechaev, D.A. Raykov, S.P. Finikov, G.D. Frolov, R.S. Cherkasov, E.A. Shchegolkov, V.V. Shchennikov etc.

At the present on the faculty the scientists work that are world renown in the field of mathematics and computer sciences, authors of school and university textbooks and programs in mathematics and computer science: Rector of Moscow State Pedagogical University, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Academician of the Russian Academy of Education, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor V.L. Matrosov, Academician of the Russian Academy of Education, PhD – Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor I.I. Bavrin, PhD – Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor V.A. Smirnov, PhD – Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences, Professor V.A.

The faculty has two dissertation councils.

Currently, the Faculty has about 650 students, bachelor and master students, post-graduate and doctoral students. For all of them all the necessary conditions for the active research in the field of mathematics and computer science are made as well as in the field of theory and methods of teaching mathematics and computer science at school.

## Department of Algebra

The Department of Algebra is headed by PhD (Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences), Professor Alexandr Aleksandrovich Fomin. At the department many doctors of physical and mathematical sciences and professors work such as A.V. Grishin, G.A.Karasev, A.V. Tsarev, E.E.Shirshova etc. The department actively participates in international conferences in mathematics and exchange programs for specialists in collaboration with foreign countries. Teachers of the department worked at universities in Europe, America, etc.

The department of Algebra of Moscow State Pedagogical University in its current form was established in 1963, but its pre-history begins much earlier, in 1924, when at the second Moscow State University the Department of algebraic analysis was founded. In 1963, the Department of algebra was headed by Professor L. Y. Kulikov who headed it until 1989.

The Department provides teaching of algebra and is involved in teaching other math courses. Teachers of the Department supervise the preparation of bachelor’s final works and master’s dissertation writing. At the Department there are successful post-graduate studies. Research work is conducted actively, including joint work with scientists from the USA, Canada, Germany, and Great Britain. This research work was supported by grants from Russian and international research foundations (Russian Foundation for Basic Research, DAAD, Grant of the President and others).

A great scientific and methodical work is carried out. The students of pedagogical universities have been taught for many years by algebra textbook created at the Department by L.Y. Kulikov «Algebra and Number Theory» and problems books in algebra and number theory by L.Y. Kulikov, A.I. Moskalenko and A.A. Fomin.

### Post-graduate studies at the Department of Algebra

Since the founding time there are post-graduate studies at the Department where more than 100 people have been trained. Among its graduates are such well-known scientists-algebraists as doctors of physical and mathematical sciences M.M. Glukhov, A.A. Gvaramia, A.A. Fomin, S.V. Pchelintsev, A.V. Grishin, Candidates of physical and mathematical sciences G.A. Karasev, N.I. Kryuchkov, A.I. Moskalenko, S.V. Rychkov, E.I. Kompantseva, Y.M. Firsov etc.

Currently, members of the Department are working with post-graduate students (both full-time and correspondence courses) in different areas of modern algebra:

- A.A. Fomin, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor (Abelian groups and modules);
- E.I. Kompantseva, PhD – Doctor of Engineering Science, Professor (Abelian groups and modules);
- A.V. Tsarev, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor (Abelian groups and modules);
- A.N. Krasilnikov, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor (identities of groups and algebras);
- A.V. Grishin, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor (identities of associative algebras);
- E.E. Shirshova, PhD – Candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor (partially ordered groups).

## Department of Geometry

The Department of Geometry is headed by PhD (Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences), Professor Vadim Fedorovich Kirichenko. The Department has deep scientific and educational traditions, which were formed by such scientists and educators as Professor L.S. Atanasyan, V.T. Bazylev, S.P. Finikov. Today, these traditions are supported by leading teachers of the department, doctors, professors and associate professors: N.S. Denisova, B.A. Pasynkov, A.M. Shelekhov etc.

## Department of Mathematical Analysis

Aslanov, E.A. Gorin and others. The teachers of the Department have participated many times in international conferences, delivered lectures and presentations in Israel, in the USA, France and other countries.

## Department of Theoretical Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics

The Department of Theoretical Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics is headed by the Rector of the University, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Education, the American Academy of Mathematics, PhD – Doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Professor Victor Leonidovich Matrosov. The Department has computer rooms that allow students to study up-to-date. At the Department doctors of physical and mathematical sciences work such as academician of the Russian Academy of Education I.I. Bavrin, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences K.V. Rudakov, Professor V.A. Gorelick and other prominent scientists who have made great contributions to theoretical computer science. State standards for teaching computer science at universities and secondary schools developed by scientists of the department as well as educational programs and training materials are widely used in many secondary and higher educational institutions in Russia. In 1998, for a number of textbooks on higher mathematics, V.L. Matrosov and I.I. Bavrin were awarded the Prize of the President of the Russian Federation.

## Department of Theory and Methods of Teaching Computer Science

The Department of Theory and Methods of Teaching Computer Science was established in 2005 under control of academician of the Russian Academy of Education A.A. Kuznetsov. Today the head of the Department, PhD (Doctor of pedagogical sciences), professor T.B. Zakharova leads the work in two directions: «New directions in methodical training teachers of computer science at a pedagogical educational institution» and «Conditions for the formation of information and communication environment, focused on new educational results.» Teachers of the Department are highly qualified specialists — teachers and scientists, well-known both in Russia and abroad, among them professors and associate professors who annually publish in the popular press their scientific works, monographs, textbooks and teacher supplies.

## Department of Theory and Methods of Teaching Mathematics

The Department of Theory and Methods of Teaching Mathematics is headed by PhD (Doctor of Pedagogical Sciences), Professor Valery Aleksandrovich Gusev, author of a number of new textbooks in mathematics. At the department doctors and candidates of science work as well as authors of school and university textbooks on methods of teaching mathematics.

## Department of Number Theory

The department of Number Theory is headed by PhD (Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences), Professor Vladimir Grigoryevich Chirsky. Teachers of the Department regularly participate in national and international conferences in number theory.
