Brigham Young University's David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies will host a special guest speaker from Ukraine as part of its Global Focus Lecture Series Wednesday, June 1, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Anatoly Nikitin, head of the Department of Applied Research at the Institute of Mathematics, will be discussing the “Orange Revolution” in Ukraine.

As the top researcher in his field, Nikitin explores the theory of relativistic particles, supersymmetry, quantum field theory and group theory.

Nikitin has published many works in the field and has received several awards, including the State Award of the Ukraine in 2002 for his monographs in mathematical physics.

He completed a master’s degree in the science of physics from Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University and a doctorate in mathematics and theoretical physics from the Institute of Mathematics.
