PhD Students 
Of course, as a teacher I've achieved some results. You can find their coordinates (email, homepage) here.=> 


Seminar 
I invite you to visit my research seminar, Asymptotic Methods of Statistics, which I supervise together with Professor R. E. Maiboroda. Sessions take place each Tuesday at 14:15 at the faculty campus.=> 



Dear friends,
I am Alexander Kukush, Professor of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University, Ukraine.
I propose you the cooperation in three directions.
1. I am an expert in Mathematical Statistics, in particular in fationable
theory of errorsinvariables models. There are a lot of unsolved problems there!
I invite you to visit my research seminar Asymptotic Methods of Statistics, which I supervise together with Professor R. E. Maiboroda. Sessions take place each Tuesday at 14:15 at the faculty campus.
2. I am a member of jury of the Open Matematical Olympiad for Kyiv students, which is held on March – April at the campus. Original problems for students of 1^{st} – 4^{th} grades are wanted. Please deliver problems with solutions to me to the Department of Mathematical Analysis. During the Olympiad, the problems where the author name is indicated are given to participants, and after the Olympiad that problems, again with indication of the author name, are published in the journal “In the World of Mathematics”.
3. I compose chess problems, the two of which were published in the German chess journal “feenschach”. In the journal “In the World of Mathematics”, I organized a column “Mathematics on Chessboard” where essays are published about the relation between Mathematics and chess, both practical chess and chess composition. Original papers are wanted on that topic, ans we will publish it very quickly! Please send the file – preferably tex.file but doc.file is admissible as well – to me or the secretary of the journal Dr. O. Vasylyk
( vasylyk@univ.kiev.ua ).
I played twice in the International Open chess tournaments in Belgium, where I my performace was 2219 and 2080. I invite everybody to play blitz in my office at the room N4 of the campus. Students who will show deep understanding of chess, will gain my personal sympathy. 
Dear readers,
We present to you a popularscience journal In the World of Mathematics. It is meant primarily for schoolchildren, students and teachers of mathematics, and amateur mathematicians. As the journal includes a section called “Mathematics on the Chessboard,” it will also be of interest to enthusiasts of chess and checkers. Contributors to the section include foreign and local grandmasters and masters. Since its start in 1995, the journal has published a lot of materials on chess composition, e.g. on studies by Reti and a number of more recent endgame studies, on retroanalytical problems pertaining to classical as well as modernistic genres, such as “touchandmove” problems (invented by V. Liskovets), AP (a posteriori), or PRA (partial retroanalysis). Due to appear in the journal’s 1st issue for 2005 is an article on paradoxes in retroanalysis, written by chess composition master A. Frolkin. Many of the forthcoming materials deal with practical chess, analyzing interesting endings, highlighting champions’ and grandmasters’ games, etc.
The Editorial Board of the journal invites chess enthusiasts to cooperate; especially welcome are articles revealing interpenetrations between mathematics and chess. Please send your contributions to:
In the World of Mathematics,
Department of Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics,
National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv,
60, Volodymyrska Str.,
01033, Kyiv, Ukraine
or email them to Editorial Board member Prof. A. Kukush:

The journal is a quarterly. One can enter a subscription to it at any local Ukrposhta department. The journal’s subscription index is 74581. Subscription is available at a rate of 8 hryvnyas per quarter.
