I.V.Sergienko graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv in 1959 and since then has been constantly working at V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. In 1964 he defended his candidate’s dissertation, and in 1972 – his doctoral dissertation. Since the same year he has been Professor of the Department of Computational Mathematics of Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, and later – Head of its branch at V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine. From 1995 to 2008 he headed Department of theoretical cybernetics and methods of optimal management of the MPTI, and since 2008 he has been heading this department as a member of the Physics and Technical Training Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine; moreover, since 2002 he is Head of the Department of the Automated Information Processing and Management Systems of the National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”. These departments of the above-mentioned higher educational institutions function as basic directly at V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine.
He is specialist in computer science, computational mathematics, theory of optimization, system analysis and mathematical modelling as well as computer software. He is author of more than 700 scientific papers 40 of which are monographs; in addition, he trained 22 Doctors and 60 Candidates of Sciences.
I.V.Sergienko as a scientist was forming under the influence of well-known Academicians V.M.Glushkov, A.O.Dorodnitsin and V.S.Mikhalevich as well as K.L.Yushchenko, Corresponding Member of the NASU.
In 1978 he was elected a Corresponding Member of the NAS of Ukraine, and in 1988 he became an Academician of the NAS of Ukraine. In 1982 to 1994 he was Deputy Director, but since 1995 he has been Director of V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine, Director General of the Cybernetic Centre of the NAS of Ukraine. In 1995 to 2009 he was Academician Secretary of the Informatics Department of the NAS of Ukraine and member of the Presidium of the NAS of Ukraine. Since 2009 he has been Advisor to the Presidium of the NAS of Ukraine.
I.V.Sergienko created a scientific school on computer mathematics and intelligent information technologies. His scientific work is related principally to the creation and studying of models and methods of mathematical optimization, in particular, discrete one, solution of a number of today’s problems of computational and applied mathematics with the development of the theory of programming and the creation of related computer intelligent technologies that are the bases for solving real problems using computers, including problems of trans-computer complexity.
In the early 60-ies I.V.Sergienko proposed a new approach to constructing algorithms for the approximate solution of discrete optimization problems. He created a new algorithmic scheme, the so-called scheme of the method of the recession vector which made it possible to construct a family of new algorithms for solving multi-extremal problems. Subsequently it found significant development in the work of many specialists from different countries, including disciples of I.V.Sergienko. Methods constructed on the basis of this algorithmic scheme have been repeatedly used in the development of a variety of computer technologies designed to solve many types of problems of discrete programming. In particular, they managed to obtain new interference resistant codes of maximum volume on the basis of newly developed algorithms for solving the problems of searching for the maximum independent set. The problems of convergence of computational processes carried out in accordance with the proposed algorithms were studied; moreover, studies of the stability problem of multi-criteria problems of discrete optimization were conducted. Results of this cycle of works were reflected in many publications and in particular in the following monographs: “Mathematical Models and Methods for Solving Discrete Optimization Problems” (Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 1985. – 382 p.; 2nd ed., supplemented and revised, 1988. – 472 p.), “Tasks of Discrete Optimization: Problems, Methods of Solution and Research” (co-author is V.P.Shilo, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2003. – 262 p.), “Computer Science in Ukraine: Formation, Development and Problems” (Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 1999. – 354 p.), “Formation and Development of the Researches in the Computer Science” (Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 1998. – 206 p.)
The main results obtained by I.V.Sergienko, Academician of NASU, and his disciples in the field of computational mathematics and information technologies for modelling and researching processes of various nature lie, in particular, in the creation of new mathematical models of stationary and dynamic processes that function in heterogeneous environments with the inclusions of interacting processes. Wide classes of mathematical models and numerical methods for studying wave processes in non-uniform unbounded domains were investigated. Based on the constructed new classical generalized problems defined on the classes of discontinuous functions the theory of optimal control of multicomponent distributed systems was developed and their optimal controllability was studied.
Theoretical results obtained are the basis of information technologies for analysis, control, forecasting and control of fields of different physical nature and processes in complex engineering objects and environments. New information technologies for the study of today’s problems of ecology, economics, management, energy, environmental protection, land reclamation and water management, other subject areas on supercomputers, computing networks and complexes were developed.
Some part of the results of this direction was reflected in the following monographs: “Computer Science and Computer Technologies” Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2004. – 432 p.), “Modelling of Transition Economics: Models, Methods and Information Technologies” (co-author is M.V.Mykhalevych, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2005. – 671 p.), “Models and Methods for Solving Problems in Non-homogeneous Environments” (co-author is V.S.Deineka, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2001. – 606 p.), “Optimal Control of Distributed Systems with Conjugation Conditions” (co-author is V.S.Deineka, New York: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2005. — 400 p.), “Numerical and Analytical Methods for Studying Wave Processes” (co-authors are A.V.Hladkyi and V.V.Skopetskyi, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2001. – 452 p.)
In the late 60-ies I.V.Sergienko got interested in the problem of automating the processing and analysis of the data by mathematical methods, in particular methods of probability theory and mathematical statistics. According to his vision, computerization of these complex high-tech processes should be based on the accumulation of diverse knowledge of the specialists, both theoretical and practical, and is also shall provide integrated data processing with the most effective methods in the specific subject areas. Developed design solutions for computing knowledge based on the architecture of systems with a spiral life cycle model and the use of “accumulated experience” of exploiting experimental instances of software systems, etc. were original and promising. Further development of these ideas was gained in the process of implementing automated systems for data processing on computers of new generations with more powerful technical tools, new operating environments and programming systems. As a result, information technology was developed to automate construction of such systems, including processes for refinement and modernization (CASE APS tool systems, Sigma Stat, and MacroProg).
Recently, such an approach has been extended to computerization of problems in non-formalized subject areas of knowledge, development of so-called fuzzy information and diagnostic technologies. Their main components were intellectual systems that used logical derivation of conclusions (as a way of solving problems), in particular, logic and probabilistic methods of output in the fuzzy informational space. A new approach based on model-oriented architectures to creating fuzzy software systems has also been launched.
This area of research is widely covered in numerous publications, in particular, in the monograph of “Data analysis software packages: development technology” (co-author is I.M.Parasiuk, Moscow: Finances and Statistics, 1988. – 159 p.)
Creation of the Cybernetic Centre of the NAS of Ukraine was completed under the guidance of I.V.Sergienko on the basis of V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine which is leading scientific centre on informatics in the world and which is defined as the main state organization on informatization problems in our country and functions as interagency coordination. The idea of creating such a centre was put forward some time by V.M.Glushkov and began to be implemented in 1993 under the guidance of V.S.Mykhalevich (two institutes were created). At present Cybernetic Centre of the NAS of Ukraine includes six institutes: V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine (basic organization of the centre), Institute of Mathematical Machines and Systems of the NAS of Ukraine, Institute of Software Systems of the NAS of Ukraine, Institute of Space Research of the NAS of Ukraine and NSA of Ukraine, Educational and Scientific Complex of “Institute for Applied System Analysis” of NTUU “KPI” of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sports of Ukraine and the NAS of Ukraine, International Scientific and Training Centre of Information Technologies and Systems of the NAS of Ukraine and the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sports of Ukraine.
I.V.Sergienko is the President of the Ukrainian Federation of Informatics (UFI), which is accepted into the International Organization of SERIS (operates under the European Union). This gives UFI the right to arrange computer literacy training courses for specialists of different profiles with the possibility to issue, if necessary computer literacy certificates for specialists of different profiles while employing them both in Ukraine and abroad. In the absence of such a certificate our doctors, engineers, and other specialists are often obliged to perform unskilled labour.
I.V.Sergienko is the Chairman of the National Committee of Ukraine on Informatics. He is Chairman of the Scientific Councils of the NAS of Ukraine of “Intellectual Information Technologies” and on the issue of “Cybernetics”, editor-in-chief of the International scientific journal “Cybernetics and System Analysis” as well as “Computer Mathematics” magazine, and he is member of the editorial boards of a number of journals.
He is the author of many patents in the sphere of computer science and applications of cybernetic techniques for the processing and protection of information. He is Head and executor of a number of international projects in the field of informatics.
A family of SCIT supercomputers and more than 20 computer information technologies for them were developed under the scientific guidance of I.V.Sergienko in 2004 to 2005 at the V.M.Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine; due to this the Institute became one of the leading companies in the world which are capable of solving the most complex problems of national importance independently. This also applies to the tasks of the market economy, various problems of management and development of the science itself (computer science, biology, medicine, energy, space exploration etc.), and the tasks of the defence complex, protection of information in computer networks and other industries. Part of the results of this area is reflected, in particular, in the monographs: “Time Challenges in the Cybernetic Space” (Kyiv: Academperiodica, 2007. – 274 p.), “Optimum Procedures of Recognition” (co-author is A.M.Hupal, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2008. – 232 p.), “Problems of Optimum Designing of Reliable Networks” (co-authors are N.Z.Shor et alias, Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 2005. – 230 p.), “Lessons by Academician Glushkov” (Kyiv: Academperiodica, 2008. – 127 p.), “Methods of Optimization and System Analysis for Problems of Trans-Computer Complexity” (Kyiv: Academperiodica, 2010. – 296 p.)
