Professor Alexeev has published over 290 articles in international scientific journals and 22 books. He has received several honors and awards, and is member of six societies.
"...contains a lot of illustrations and calculations supplied with the detailed discussions of the used approximations, their precision, parameters, etc. It is especially important within the first part of the book, where the method is introduced since these items allow for studying of the topic by newcomers." --Zentralblatt MATH
