The commemorative coin is dedicated to Oleksii Pohorielov, the famous mathematician, teacher, design engineer, member of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine, honored scientist and engineer of Ukraine, and winner of many state prizes and scientific awards. The scientist’s research helped finish developing the theory of complete irregular convex surfaces and laid the foundation for nonlinear geometric theory of shells that are the most wide-spread elements of modern design. Oleksii Pohorielov is the author of dozens of monographs and textbooks (in particular, the original school textbook on geometry and textbooks on analytical and differential geometry for university students), most of which have been translated into English.
