The Mathematics Department, a division of the Faculty of Physics, was created at the same time as the Faculty to teach students mathematics. The Department was founded by academician Vladimir Smirnov, an outstanding specialist in the theory of analytic functions. He was the author of the five volumes course in mathematics, the first two being written specially for the students of the faculties of physics, and the other being oriented to professional physicists. It is worth noting that, thanks to his professionalism and exceptional personality, Vladimir Smirnov influenced the progress of mathematics in Leningrad and in the whole USSR.
