Google celebrated ground-breaking Russian mathematician Olga Ladyzhenskaya On Thursday who recognized for her significant work on partial differential equations and fluid dynamics as well as the finite difference method for the Navier–Stokes equations.
She was born Olga Aleksandrovna Ladyzhenskaya on 7 March 1922 in Kologriv, a small town in the west of Russia, known as a Russian mathematician. She is everywhere despite her death but with her work on 19th-century “Navier-Stokes equations” that is still helping meteorologists understand the path of storm clouds, in the midst of many other uses.
Ladyzhenskaya earned incredible fame for her work on partial differential equations, fluid dynamics, and earned the Lomonosov Gold Medal in 2002. However, her math teacher father emphasized her to grow interest in the academic subject but unfortunately, he was killed after detained in 1939.
Regrettably, she passes away on 12 January 2004 at the age of 81, in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Ladyzhenskaya had been written more than two hundred scientific projects, among which are six monographs.
The Soviet Union singled out and killed hundreds of thousands people in Russia in the late 1930s, as well as those who recognized as rivals of Joseph Stalin, were the main target in a time of feverish political paranoia.
After completing her secondary school, Ladyzhenskaya couldn’t step in Leningrad State University because of her father’s death sentence. She finally went to Moscow State University after she had been teaching at a high school for several years.
She completed her graduation from Moscow State in 1947 and moved to attend Leningrad State as a graduate student if an obituary to be believed published by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Finally, Ladyzhenskaya discovered a platform where she secured a doctoral study paying her complete attention to partial differential equations, reported by the society. She then signed up Moscow State University for her Doctor of Science thesis in 1953, making growth her work on partial differential equations.
