The 90th Birthday Anniversary Academician V.I. Skurikhin (1926–2014)

Vladimir Ilyich Skurikhin was born on April 17, 1926 in Vyatka (Russia). In 1947, with honors He graduated from the Ivanovo Energy Institute, qualifying as an electrical engineer for specialty “electrical equipment of industrial enterprises”.

Scientific and pedagogical activity of V.I. Skurikhina for ten years after graduation The university was held at the same institute, where he went from a laboratory assistant to a senior lecturer.
The most complete talent of V.I. Skurikhin as a scientist and organizer of science revealed in Kiev in Computing Center of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR (since 1962. Institute of Cybernetics) since 1958 at the position of Senior Researcher. From now until the end of his life, all his scientific activities was connected with the Cybernetic Center of the Ukrainian SSR Academy of Sciences (now the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine)
in which he held the posts of academic secretary, head of department, deputy Rector of the Institute of Cybernetics. V.M. Glushkov NAS of Ukraine before education in 1997 International Scientific and Educational Center for Information Technologies and Systems, where he continued Work as department head and deputy director for science.

In 1970 V.I. Skurikhin defended his doctoral thesis, and in 1972 was elected a member correspondent of the Ukrainian SSR. Since 1978, V.I. Skurikhin – member of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR, since 1991 – Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. In 1990 he was elected an academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences.

Skurikhin is a well-known in our country and abroad scientist in various areas of systems engineering and systems theory. The scope of his research interests is great and covers the scope of both theoretical research in the field of the dynamics of production systems, the integration of information technology data processing, management principles in targeted and purposeful systems, and the scope of applied work in the field of creation and implementation of various automated systems in the national economy and defense industry level and destination.

The fundamental results of the scientist include the principle of maximum system effect put forward by him, which should be achieved in complex (integrated) automated control systems.
Skurikhin made a significant contribution to the development of the theory of automatic control: he was inspired by the idea of ​​controlling multiply-connected static and linear dynamic objects according to a model that was included in the contour of the system rather than direct feedback.
