Sazhenkov, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, A. Papin, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences). The work of the laboratory is carried out within the framework of the implementation of the state task at the expense of subsidies, the amount of funding in 2020-2023 will amount to more than 60 million rubles. The aim of the project is, among other things, to organize a multifaceted process of training and retraining of highly qualified specialists in the field of mathematics and mechanics; creation of an innovative system of science, technology and professional education of a modern level in the field of both fundamental and applied research aimed at solving the most important problems of the region.
