Dmitriy Dmitrievich IVANENKO

Dmitriy IVANENKO, USSR Physicist. Professor, Moscow University, since 1943; associate, Institute of the History of Natural Science and Engineering, USSR Academy of Science, since 1949.

Background

  • IVANENKO, Dmitriy was born in 1904.

  • Education

    • 1927 graduated Leningrad University.

    Career

    • Specialist in nuclear physics. 1932 hypothesized the structure of the atomic nucleus as being of protons and neutrons. 1934-1936 with I. Ye.

      Tamm developed the principles of the theory of specific nuclear energies. 1944-1948 with I. Ya. Pomeranchuk and A. A. Sokolov developed the theory of electromagnetic radiation emitted by “luminescent” electrons accelerated to high energies in betatron and synchrotron accelerators.

      Suggested new linear matrix geometry and proposed theory of parallel transfer of electron spinner wave functions, which permitted generalization of the Dirac quantum equation in the presence of gravity. 1927-1943 at science and education establishements in Leningrad, Kharkov, Tomsk, Sverdlovsk and Kiev.

    Religion

    Religion stops people thinking in a logical and reasonable way.

    Views

    Marxism–Leninism as the only truth could not, by its very nature, become outdated.
