Abstract

THE development of the science of mathematics in Russia is comparatively recent, beginning with the establishment of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the eighteenth century, when Bernoulli and Euler, leading mathematicians of the time, were invited to Russia. These men, however, remained foreigners, and did not create what may rightly be termed a Russian school of mathematics. Lobachev-sky was the outstanding Russian mathematician, and he first propounded theories of non-Euclidean geometry, but he did not found a school of mathematics, and his ideas were not taken up by any pupils.
