International recognition of the algorithmic measurement theory
It is well known, that there are two main sources of development of those or others mathematical theories, practice needs and internal needs of mathematics. As to the "algorithmic measurement theory" the need for its development arose in the engineering practice, in the area of analog-to-digital conversion as the new field of the measurement technology.
Therefore this theory on the pioneering stage of its development called the interest first of all for the specialists developed the theory of technical measurements. The following events promoted to development and international recognition of the "algorithmic measurement theory" can be noticed first of all:
- For the first time the concept of the "algorithmic measurement theory" was introduced into being by Stakhov in 1973 in the lecture "Algorithmic measurement theory" delivered by him at the All-Union Conference on Information and Measurement Systems (Ukraine, the city of Ivano-Frankovsk).
- For the first time the wide international discussion of the "algorithmic measurement theory" was made in 1976 in Austria, at first in February 23, 1976 on the meeting of the Mathematical Institutions of two Graz Universities where Prof. Stakhov delivered the lecture "Algorithmic theory of measurement and foundations of computer arithmetic" and then (in March 3, 1976) in Vienna where Prof. Stakhov delivered the same lecture of the joint meeting of the Austrian Cybernetics and Computer societies. And we will tell about this relevant event on the next pages of our Museum.
- In 1977 the Publisher "Soviet Radio" (Moscow) published Stakhov's book "Introduction into the Algorithmic Measurement Theory" and in 1979 the Publisher "Znanie" (Moscow) published Stakhov's brochure "Algorithmic Measurement Theory". Just this book and this brochure obtained a wide notoriety in the Soviet and World science proclaimed about birth of the "algorithmic measurement theory", the new trend in the theoretical metrology.
- In 1979 in Moscow the 7-th Congress IMEKO under the flag "Measurements on the service of technological progress" was held. On the Congress plenary meeting the leading world scientists in this area Prof. Hoffman (Germany) and Prof. Tarbeev (USSR) delivered the large survey lecture "Theoretical and physics-metrological problems of further development of the measurement technology in Industry and Science". In the section "Problems of the general measurement theory" the concept of the "algorithmic measurement theory" as the present trend in the theoretical metrology for the first time was used widely.
- In 1986 Prof. Stakhov delivered the lecture "Algorithmic Measurement Theory" at the plenary meeting of the International Workshop "Intelligent Measurements".
- In 1989 the International Journal "Computers and Mathematics with Applications" published Stakhov's article "The Golden Section in the Measurement Theory".
- In 1990 the Publisher "Energoatomizdat" (Moscow) published the book of the known Russian scientist Prof. Arutunov "Theory and Application of the Algorithmic Measurements".
The book is written largely under influence of Stakhov's book "Introduction into Algorithmic Measurement Theory". Stakhov's contribution to development of the general measurement theory was emphasized and a number of new concepts such, for example, as "Stakhov's algorithm" was introduced.
- In 1994 the International Journal "Control systems and machines" (Ukraine) published Stakhov's article "Algorithmic measurement theory: a new approach to the theory of positional number systems and computer arithmetic". To stress a significance of this publication the Journal Edition put the title "Algorithmic Measurement Theory" on the forward cover of the Journal as one of essentials of the important issues alongside with such topics as "Informatization of Ukraine " and "New methods in computer science".
Thus, without any doubts the concept of the "algorithmic measurement theory", introduced by Prof. Stakhov in 1973, has come widely in the modern scientific literature, and the "algorithmic measurement theory" is the widely recognized original scientific direction of modern information science.
And though at first the majority of mathematicians (including the Fibonacci-mathematicians) did not react on the "algorithmic theory of measurement", which is the wide generalization of the Fibonacci "weighing problem" and touches to mathematics foundations. But one mathematician who can understand and access properly the new measurement theory still was found in that period. The famous Austrian mathematician Alexander Aigner, the Director of the 1st Mathematical Institute of the Graz University gave the brilliant review on the algorithmic measurement theory in 1976. And this review played the main role in development of Stakhov's direction and its international recognition. And we will tell about this review at the next page of our Museum. Follow us!
