To Selection Methods
The founders of communication theory should also include the outstanding domestic scientist and teacher Dmitry Vasilievich Ageev – doctor of technical sciences, professor, honored worker of science and technology of the RSFSR. The main area of his activity was teaching radio engineering. At the same time, possessing tremendous creative potential and feeling promising trends in the development of radio engineering, he put forward a number of important ideas that were included in the golden fund of the main provisions of communication theory.
It should also be attributed to the merits of D.V. Ageev that he, being a professor at the Gorky Polytechnic Institute, created one of the largest scientific schools in our country, in which a number of very original scientific works were performed. He prepared 55 candidates and 11 doctors of sciences. Many of his students became well-known experts.
In our country, D.V. Ageev enjoyed great authority among scientists and engineers. For his scientific achievements and work on the training of scientific personnel, he was awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labor, a medal "For valiant work", he was awarded the title "Honorary radio operator of the USSR".
Dmitry Vasilievich Ageev was born on February 21, 1911 in St. Petersburg in a working class family. Even in his school years, he became interested in radio and therefore, after graduation, he tried to enter the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute (LETI). The first attempt was unsuccessful, but he made a firm decision to devote himself to radio engineering. To prepare for the institute, Ageev entered State courses, where he studied for a year. In the courses, his successes were so high, especially in mathematics, that he was recommended to enter the Faculty of Mathematics of Leningrad University. But D.V. Ageeva was attracted to radio engineering, and in 1930 he became a student of the radio engineering faculty of the Leningrad Institute of Communication Engineers – LIIS (the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute of Communications (LEIS) named after Professor M. A. Bonch-Bruevich was called so before the Great Patriotic War) .
In 1935, Ageev successfully graduated from the institute and was left in graduate school. In the same year he published two fundamental theoretical works: "About transients in a resonant amplifier" (together with academician Yu. B. Kobzarev) and "Fundamentals of the theory of linear selection".
