Ostrogradsky, Mikhailo Vasyl’ovich
(1801--1862)

Ostogradsky , a Ukrainian
Mathematician, was the first mathematician to publish a proof for the divergence theorem.
Having been denied his degree at Kharkiv University by the Russian
imperial authorities, Ostrogradsky left Ukraine for Paris in 1822. There he met Laplace, Legendre, Fourier,
Poisson, and Cauchy. While working on
the theory of heat in the mid-1820s, he formulated the divergence theorem as a
tool for turning volume integrals into surface integrals. Ostrogradsky’s objective was to provide a combined theory
of hydrodynamics, elasticity, heat and electricity and as a result he made
major developments in a wide range of areas. He set the stage for Chebyshev and
his school to flourish and achieve international stature. http://www.imath.kiev.ua/~skolyada/Ostrogradski.html

**Stephen P. Timoshenko**
( 1878 – 1972)

**Our distinguished
member:** **Stephen P. Timoshenko**** was born in Ukraine,
graduated from the St. Petersburg Institute of Civil Engineering (1901) before
returning to Kyiv as a Professor at the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (1907-1920).
He was a co-founder of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences. In 1922
he immigrated to the US and worked at the Westinghouse Research
Laboratory. In 1927 he joined the faculty of the University of
Michigan College of Engineering where he taught until 1936. In 1936,
Timoshenko moved to Stanford University where he stayed until his retirement in
1960. Timoshenko made numerous theoretical and experimental contributions
to applied mechanics and revolutionized the teaching of mechanics. His
twelve pioneering textbooks, translated into as many as 35 languages, remain
definitive sources on Elasticity, Mechanics of Materials, Vibrations,
Structural Theory, Stability and Plates and Shells. Biography: http://www.nap.edu/books/0309032873/html/323.html

Dr. Swiatoslaw
Trofimenko (1931-2007) The late vice-president and learned secretary of the
Shevchenko Scientific Society in America

As reported in the April
28 issue of the Chemical and Engineering News (C&EN), a journal of the ACS,
the symposium, sponsored by the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry, was titled
"Scorpionate Ligands - Thirty Five Years Later," and was organized to
honor Dr. Trofimenko, the creator of the scorpionate ligand system, a diverse
class of some 200 compounds that form complexes with all metal ions.
Significantly, scorpionate ligands made the cover of this latest issue of
C&EN.

Ligands in this case are
large organic molecules containing boron and nitrogen atoms that bind to metal
ions. The ligands that Dr. Trofimenko created and developed bear the proper
chemical name polypyrazolylborates, but the manner in which they combine with
metal ions reminded him of the grabbing-and-stinging action of a scorpion,
hence he coined for them the term "scorpionates." This metaphoric
nomenclature has been accepted by chemists worldwide.

Dr. Trofimenko the
late vice-president and learned
secretary of the Shevchenko Scientific Society in America, a vice-president of
the Lypynsky Institute of East-European Research and a member of the Ukrainian
Academy of Arts and Sciences in the U.S. (UVAN). He is also a member of the
ACS, in which he held a number of national and regional offices.
