Igor Zelenko, Russian mathematician.


  • Zelenko, Igor was born on July 13, 1972 in Edincy, Republic of Moldavia, Russia. Arrived in Israel, 1990. Son of Leonid and Brana Zelenko.

  • Education

    • Doctor of Philosophy, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, 2002.


    • Research associate SISSA/ISAS, Trieste, Italy, 2002—2005, visiting associate professor, since 2005.

    Major achievements

    • Achievements include development of general procedure for construction of differential geometry for a wide class of geometric structures on manifolds. The solution of equivalence problem for nonholonomic vector distribution of rank 2 and 3 on manifolds of any dimension, extending classical work of Elie Cartan on 5-dimensional manifolds. The geometric structures under consideration appear naturally in geometrical study of systems of partial differential equations, control theory, robotics, models of visual perception and others.
