Anatoly Timofeevich Fomenko (Russian: Анато́лий Тимофе́евич Фоме́нко) (born 13 March 1945) is a Russian mathematician, professor of Moscow State University, well-known as a topologist, and a full member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He was born in Donetsk, Ukraine.
Anatoly T. Fomenko is a full member (Academician) of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and the International Higher Education Academy of Sciences, as well as a doctor of physics and mathematics, a professor, and head of the Differential Geometry Department of the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics in Moscow State University. Fomenko is the author of the theory of invariants and topological classification of integrable Hamiltonian dynamic systems. He is the author of 180 scientific publications, 26 monographs and textbooks on mathematics, a specialist in geometry and topology, variational calculus, symplectic topology, Hamiltonian geometry and mechanics, and computer geometry. Fomenko is also the author of a number of books on the development of new empirico-statistical methods and their application to the analysis of historical chronicles as well as the chronology of antiquity and the Middle Ages.
Fomenko is the author of extensive writings in his original fields of mathematics, and is also famous for his original drawings, inspired by topological objects and structures (http://anatoly-fomenko.com).
Fomenko is a supporter of revising chronological history. He has created his own revision called "New Chronology." based on stastical correlations and dating of zodiacs. Fomenko asserts that all of ancient history (including Greece, Rome, and Egypt) is just reflections of events that occured in the middle ages.
