Scientific biography and main
results:
The Ph.D. thesis of V.V. Uchaikin concerned application of
the perturbation theory to theoretical problems of radiation shielding and
gammadefectoscopy. His main results of that period are the theory of images
blurred by Compton scattering of radiation, the Monte Carlo algorithm of
calculation of influence of local inhomogeneities, generalized perturbation
theory applied to transition effects in cosmic ray physics.
Since 1973 till 1989, V.V. Uchaikin worked in the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia ). His scientific group became known through development of stochastic transport theory for highenergy particles in cosmic rays, introducing the adjoint approach to cascade theory, numerical investigation of the spatial distributions in electromagnetic component of extensive atmospheric showers (EAS), creation of the twocomponent model of stochastic fluctuations in EAS, the transport theory in random media, the variational method of interpolation of solutions of integrodifferential equations and based on it sensitivity analysis. Some of the results are used now in different codes of processing of cosmic ray arrays data (in particular, in the code "CORSIKA"). His second, Sc.D. thesis was titled "Concept of Stochastical Importance and its Applications to Transport Problems" and defended at the meetingpoint of two sciences: Nuclear Physics and Geophysics.
In 1995, V.V.Uchaikin found a new scientific direction in Ulyanovsk State University (Ulyanovsk, Russia): numerical simulation of stochastic fractals, fractal diffusion and diffusion on fractals. He developed conception of mesofractals applied to the largescale structure of the Universe, calculated of penetration of light in such structures, offered a new model of nonDebye relaxation, investigated the new class of statistical distributions called "fractional stable distributions" and a new class of random processes  subordinated Levy motion, created the code for simulations of such distributions and processes, investigated new regimes of anomalous diffusion, stated the difference between fractal diffusion and diffusion on fractals. About 50 articles have been published in these direction including the book "CHANCE AND STABILITY: Stable Distributions and their Applications" (V.V. Uchaikin and V.M. Zolotarev, series Modern Probability and Statistics, VSP, Utrecht, 1999, 570 p.).
