Kort biografi
Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya was born to a family of minor Russian nobility. Her father taught mathematics and shared his passion for the subject with Olga, who showed early talent for it. He was arrested by the NKVD in 1937 during Stalin's Great Terror and sentenced to death. Olga's two older sisters were expelled from high school, but she was allowed to finish and attend Leningrad Teachers' Training College. From 1941 to 1943, she taught mathematics at the secondary school level. She was then allowed to study mathematics at Moscow State University, from which she graduated in 1947 with highest honors. That same year, she married Andrei Alexevich Kiselev, also a mathematician, and continued her studies at Leningrad State University. She completed her Ph.D. thesis in 1949 and was finally awarded her degree in 1953, after Stalin's death. In 1954, she was named a professor at Leningrad State University; in 1961 she became director of the Laboratory of Mathematical Physics at the renowned Steklov Institute, where her mathematical work brought her wide recognition, both in the USSR and abroad. Professor Ladyzhenskaya wrote more than 250 scholarly papers and was awarded the Lomonosov Gold Medal in 2002. She was made a full member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1990.
