Title The 60th birthday of Professor Yu. G. Martynenko
Abstract Yurii Grigorievich Martynenko, who was born on September 19, 1945, has celebrated his sixtieth birthday. He is a member of the editorial board of the journal "Izvestiya RAN. Mekhanika Tverdogo Tela", head of a laboratory at Lomonosov Moscow State University, doctor of physical-mathematical sciences, professor, Honoured Scientist of the Russian Federation, an active member of the International Academy of Sciences of Higher School and of the Academy of Navigation and Motion Control, President of the Scientific-Methodological Council in Theoretical Mechanics of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, and winner of A. A. Andronov's prize of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Martynenko's studies are devoted to mechanics of gyroscopic and navigational systems, dynamics of solid bodies in electromagnetic fields, robotics, and mechatronics. Martynenko heads the leading scientific school "Intellectual robots and mechatronic systems." He developed new methods for solving simultaneous systems of electrodynamic equations and equations of motion of solid bodies, created the theory of motion of solids with electrostatic bearing, and proposed new approaches in the theory of singularly perturbed differential equations. He obtained conditions under which the precession equations of gyroscopic systems can be used correctly and the stability conditions for steady-state rotations of conducting solids in homogeneous and inhomogeneous magnetic fields in the case of large and small depths of the field penetration into the semiconductor. Martynenko found one of the most complete solutions of the problem of the influence of eddy currents on the orientation of a conducting satellite in the magnetic field of the Earth. He developed methods for controlling unstable mechatronic systems with deficiency of controlling actions and boundedness of control resources and constructed a mathematical model of a single-wheel mobile robot with gyroscopic stabilization system. Martynenko developed an artificial tactile mechanoreceptor for the force-moment sensing of robotics and biomechatronic systems.

Martynenko leads teaching work at the chair of Applied Mechanics and Control, Department of Mechanics and Mathematics, Moscow State University, and the chair of Theoretical Mechanics and Mechatronics at Moscow Power Engineering Institute. He is one of the authors of the new educational technology intended to construct mobile robots for participating in the robotics competitions.

There are 18 Candidates and 3 Doctors of sciences among his students.

Martynenko published more than 160 scientific papers.

The editorial board and the editorial staff of the journal "Mekhanika Tverdogo Tela" heartily congratulates Yurii Grigorievich and wishes him strong health and many new creative achievements.
