Founders of the Progress in Physics

Progress in Physics promotes individual academic freedom for research, according to the respective articles stated by the Declaration of Academic Freedom. Therefore the articles published in Progress in Physics may not necessarily represent the views of the Editorial Board or its individual members. All submissions will be read by one of the Editors, then forwarded to invited experts, whose professional field is close to the submission. Decision about the submission will be produced by the Editors, according to the recommendations obtained from the side of the reviewers.

Dmitri Rabounski (b. 1965 in Moscow, Russia) was educated at the Moscow High School of Physics. Commencing in 1983, he was trained by Prof. Kyril Stanyukovich (1916-1989), a prominent scientist in gaseous dynamics and General Relativity. He was also trained with Dr. Abraham Zelmanov (1913-1987), the famous cosmologist and researcher in General Relativity. During the 1980's, he was also trained by Dr. Vitaly Bronshten (1918-2004), the well-known expert in the physics of destruction of bodies in atmosphere. Dmitri Rabounski has published about 30 scientific papers and 6 books on General Relativity, gravitation, physics of meteoroids, and astrophysics. In 2005, he started a new American journal on physics, Progress in Physics, where he is the Editor-in-Chief, and is currently continuing his scientific studies as an independent researcher. He also is the maintainer of The Abraham Zelmanov Journal, the international journal of the exclusive publications on General Relativity and cosmology.

Florentin Smarandache (b. 1954 in Bălceşti, Romania) was educated in the Department of Mathematics of the University of Craiova, Romania, where he received a MSc in both mathematics and computer sciences. He earned a PhD in number theory from Moldova State University at Kishinev. Prof. Smarandache is the founder of a class of "paradoxist geometries", where one or more axioms can be denied in two different ways or can be true and false at the same time (Smarandache geometries). In collaboration with Dr. Jean Dezert, a French engineer, he constructed a new theory of plausible and paradoxical reasoning (DSmT) in information fusion. He is also the inventor of a new class of logic (neutrosophic logic) upon which he built a new philosophy, neutrosophy, which extends the current dialectics by the inclusion of neutralities. He is the author of many books and more than one hundred fifty scientific articles on mathematics, physics, robotics, engineering, philosophy. After 1990, Prof. Smarandache continued his studies at various universities in the USA. In 1997, he joined the Department of Mathematics and Sciences of the University of New Mexico, where he is Full Professor. In 2005, Florentin Smarandache became a co-founder and Associate Editor of Progress in Physics. In recent years, he is working on fundamental problems in mathematical physics and their applications.

Larissa Borissova (b. 1944 in Moscow, Russia) was educated at the Faculty of Astronomy, the Department of Physics of the Moscow State University. Commencing in 1964, she was trained by Dr. Abraham Zelmanov (1913-1987), a famous cosmologist and researcher in General Relativity. She was also trained, commencing in 1968, by Prof. Kyril Stanyukovich (1916-1989), a prominent scientist in gaseous dynamics and General Relativity. In 1975, Larissa Borissova received the "candidate of science" degree (the Soviet PhD), for her research results on gravitational waves. She has published about 30 scientific papers and 6 books on General Relativity and gravitation. In 2005, Larissa Borissova became a co-founder and Associate Editor of Progress in Physics, and is currently continuing her scientific studies as an independent researcher. She is also a co-founder of The Abraham Zelmanov Journal.
