    My previous and current research is here; my publications are here; my short CV is here.


    TEACHING EXPERIENCE

    During several years (1985-1991) I have given lectures and seminars on the advanced course of quantum physics for the 4th year students of the Physics Department of Moscow State University, who choose to specialize in theoretical nuclear and particle physics. The topics included are the foundation of the theory of angular momentum in quantum physics, the spin density matrix, decay of oriented systems, and the quark theory of hadrons.
