Tomsk State Pedagogical University

Main Research Areas

The university is proud of its research history and its worldwide recognised scholars an scientific schools.

Thus the scientific school “Quantum field theory and gravity” (Professor I.L. Buchbinder, P.M. Lavrov, V.V. Obukhov, S.D. Odintsov, I.L. Shapiro, I.M. Schwartzman, V.Y. Epp and others), according to Russian and international specialists, carries out research on a global level. In November 2011, Professor S.D. Odintsov entered the Forbes ranking of the most famous Russian scientists.

Scientific school in the field of mathematics teaching methods in higher and secondary education (Professor E.G. Gelfman, M.A. Kholodnaya ), joined many researchers, teachers of mathematics of pedagogical universities in Russia as well as creative teachers. Their outcomes are widely used in the education systems in many regions of the country.
