INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
GEOMETRIC TOPOLOGY, DISCRETE GEOMETRY AND SET THEORY(Moscow, August 24  28, 2004)
of Ljudmila Vsevolodovna Keldysh (March 12, 1904  February 16, 1976) Scopes and Themes

Ljudmila Vsevolodovna Keldysh was an eminent mathematician. She first worked in Descriptive Set Theory (being a member of the celebrated Lusitania  a mathematiciancommunity grouped around N.N. Lusin), and then, from the 50's, in the domain of Geometric Topology. Her main result in Descriptive Theory consists in the full analysis of the Borel sets, including the construction of arithmetic examples for all effectively given transfinites. In Topology, she is the author of the well known examples of open nulldimensional mapping of the Menger curve onto cubes and open monotone mappings of cubes onto cubes of higher dimension. This work stimulated many further studies. In the last period of her life L.V. Keldysh conducted a seminar inGeometric Topology, which has markedly influenced modern state of the field.
