Congratulations to Pavel Grigorievich Akishin

July 11, 2021 marked the 70th anniversary of the birth of Pavel Grigoryevich Akishin, Deputy Head of the Scientific Department of Computational Physics of the Meshcheryakov Laboratory of Information Technologies (MLIT), Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
Pavel Grigoryevich has been working at MLIT (LCTA) since 1973, after graduating from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University with a degree in mathematics. In 1983, Akishin P. G. successfully defended his candidate's dissertation on the specialty 01.01.07 – computational mathematics, and in 1993 – his doctoral dissertation on the specialty 05.13.16 – application of computer technology, mathematical modeling and mathematical methods for scientific research.
Akishin P. G.'s main research interests are related to the development of numerical methods for solving various linear and nonlinear problems of mathematical physics, as well as performing calculations for the optimization of large electrophysical installations. Pavel Grigoryevich carried out calculations of magnetic systems for the synchrophasotron of the Laboratory of High Energies (LHE), the nuclotron (LHE), the cyclotron U-400M (FLNR). The software developed by P.G. Akishin was applied to optimize the parameters of the ECR ion source (DLNP), the AMPIR spectrometer (JINR), dipole magnets for the ALICE (CERN, Switzerland) and CBM (GSI, Darmstadt, Germany) experiments. At present, P.G. Akishin is involved in modeling magnetic systems for the FAIR (GSI) and NICA (JINR) projects, he is JINR’s responsible leader in joint projects with GSI on computing of magnetic systems for the SIS100, SIS300 accelerators.
P.G. Akishin is a leading specialist in the field of numerical modeling of electromagnetic fields, he is the author and co-author of more than 110 scientific papers. From 1996 to the present, P.G. Akishin is a member of the Dissertation Council on Information Technologies and Computational Physics at MLIT.
In 1990, P.G. Akishin as part of the group of authors was awarded JINR’s Incentive Prize for the cycle of works "Methods of numerical modeling, program complexes and computer calculations of magnetic systems of electrophysical facilities". In 1999, for long-term and conscientious work, P.G. Akishin was awarded the departmental badge of distinction in the work “Veteran of Nuclear Energy and Industry”. In 2006, for services to the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, P.G. Akishin was awarded JINR’s Honorary Diploma, in 2016, he was awarded the title of “Honorary Fellow of JINR”, in 2021, he was awarded JINR’s Certificate of Honor. He enjoys well-deserved authority and respect among his colleagues.
Pavel Grigorievich skillfully reconciles work and family. He is a caring husband, father of three wonderful daughters and a grandfather of five grandchildren.
We congratulate Pavel Grigorievich Akishin on his anniversary and wish him health, happiness, further success in work and a prosperous family life.
