About this Item

Text in Russian. [2]. 37.1] pages. Illustrations (most in color). Format is 8 inches by 11.5 inches. The Russian Federal Nuclear Center - VNIIEF is the largest research center in Russia that successfully addresses defense, science and national economy problems. The Institute was founded in 1946; it made a major contribution to production of nuclear and thermonuclear weapons in the USSR. The VNIIEF activity ensured nuclear parity during the "Cold War" years. High scientific potential and the variety of problems solved by RFNC-VNIIEF are in many respects determined by talent and energy of the distinguished scientists who were at the outset of VNIIEF. Schools of thought initiated by them have been developed on an extensive scale. This enables advanced knowledge in various fields of science and technology to be gained and new ideas and high technologies to be developed. Today the primary mission of the Institute is to ensure the reliability and safety of nuclear weapons in Russia. The following prominent scientists worked at VNIIEF: I. V. Kurchatov, Yu. B. Khariton, Ya. B. Zeldovich, A. D. Sakharov, N. N. Bogolyubov, M.A. Lavrentiev, I. Ye. Tamm, G. N. Flerov, Ye. A. Negin, S.G. Kocharyants, A. I. Pavlovskii, Yu. N. Babaev, S.B. Kormer and many others. They created much of what the Russian science is proud of. Today's generation of scientists together with the senior scientists are keeping up these traditions. The Institute has created and developed schools of physics, mathematics, design, experiment, chemistry and technology. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Bookseller Inventory # 75212
