PRESENTATION: Viacheslav P. Belavkin, professor at Nottingham University,
is one of the pioneers ofQuantum Probablity and Quantum Open Systems,
and one of the leading experts in filtering theory and control in presence
of classical and quantum noises. With V. P. Stratanovich he was awarded
the Lenin Prize in 1996 for the development of new mathematical methods
of stochastic analysis and calculus of complex physical processes both
in classical and quantum open dynamical systems, which lead to the solution
of a series of fundamental problems, in the mathematical foundation of
nonlinear nonequilibrium thermodynamics, information theory and statistics
of classical and quantum processes, classical and quantum signal processing,
and estimation and hypothesis testing.
