Department of Physics BMSTU
Department of Physics of Bauman Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) has worked since 1832, when Physical Study to demonstrate physical phenomena during lectures for students was created at the Craft Institution of Moscow Training House.
On the first June in 1968 the Craft Institution was reformed into Emperor Moscow Technical Specialized School and the Physical Study got a new official status as Department of General and Applied Physics. Professor A.S.Vladimirskii, who had graduated from Moscow University, headed the Department.
The brightest historical moments of the Department were linked with names of professor V.S.Shchegolyaev (the head of the Department since 1886 till 1912) and academician P.P.Lazarev (the head of the Department since 1912 till 1925).
At different times a number of remarkable scientists have worked at the Department: academician, president of USSR Science Academy S.I.Vavilov, corresponding-members of USSR Science Academy K.A.Krug and A.S.Predvoditelev, professors A.B.Mlodzievskii, A.K.Trapeznikov, A.V.Shpol'skii, N.E.Uspenskii, V.D.Zernov, K.A.Putilov.
At present the staff of the Department of Physics consists of 14 professors, 47 readers, 8 senior teachers and 7 professors, 15 readers, 7 senior teachers occupy private positions.
The main scientific directions of the Department of Physics are
- Electro-hydrodynamics (Prof. I.N.Aliev);
- Theory of strength and destruction for solid bodies (Prof. V.N.Bovenko);
- Process theory of non-linear transference (Prof. A.S.Romanov);
- Optics and spectroscopy (Prof. V.S.Gorelik);
- Applied electrodynamics and radio-physics (Prof. O.S.Litvinov);
- Theory of interference phenomena in electrodynamics and solid state physics (Prof. V.V.Tolmachev);
- Physics of magnetic materials;
- Quantum optics (Prof. S.P.Erkovich).
There is a laboratory for student researching at the Department of Physics.
Since 2001 the Department of Physics trains on the courses of bachelor and master degrees in Engineering Physics.
The history of our institution, the Bauman MHTS (Moscow Higher Technical School), or presently the Bauman MSTU (Moscow State Technical University) dates back to 1830, when Emperor Nicholas I confirmed the "statute of the industrial school" to open in Moscow. Russia's developing industry needed skilled labor in many trades. So, the aim of the new school was to train skillful artisans with a solid theoretical background to improve and spread skills in various trades all over Russia. The training personnel of the school comprised graduates of the Moscow University who specialized in mathematics, mechanics, physics and chemistry. By 1868 the academic standards of the school were so high that it was reorganized into a special institution of higher learning (Imperial Moscow Technical School or IMTS). Its major task now was to train mechanics in construction, engineering and manufacturing. The IMTS was financially supported by the Government and industrialists. Its management was democratic. Its teaching staff boasted of many talented scientists who maintained contacts with the West. All these circumstances helped the School to achieve outstanding successes in manufacturing processes and practices in the chemical, food and textile industries, metal and wood processing, and structural mechanics. During the 1876 Exhibition in Philadelphia the practically-minded Americans highly appreciated and admired the methods used by the School, recognizing them as an original "Russian system" of training engineers. In 1876, Dr. Wrinkle, President of the Boston Institute of Technology, writes to V.K.Dela-Vos, Director of the Imperial Moscow Technical School that Russia is a recognized leader in handling the important problems of engineering education..., and that no other system will hence be used in America.
Thus, the Moscow Higher Technical School joined the ranks of "leading polytechnical schools in Europe".
The late 19th century witnessed quickening progress in electrical engineering, aeromechanics, and the power engineering industry.
In 1918, the MHTS organized several research institutes, including TSAGI (Central Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics Institute), which eventually developed into independent structures, separating from their parent. The quick industrial expansion of the country called for new training facilities on other fields of science and technology. In 1930, the MHTS began to branch out into many new institutions of higher learning: the Moscow Aviation Institute, the Moscow Power Engineering Institute, the Military Chemical Academy, the Textile Institute, and the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute.
The MHTS continued to specialize in training engineers for the machine-building and instrumentation industries.
In 1938, the MHTS opened new departments with a defense profile: armoured vehicles and tanks, artillery, and ammunition. In 1948, a department of rocketry was added.
The following famous scientists and specialists have graduated our school: Academician A.N.Tupolev, S.P.Korolev, and many other aircraft and rocket designers and developers; Academician N.A.Dollezhal, chief designer of atomic piles; Academician A.I.Tselikov, chief designer of metallurgical engineering; Academician S.A.Lebedev, chief designer of computers.
Our School is distinguished for high-level scientific and engineering training of students, extensive relations with industries, good traditions, and high professional and moral requirements which both the professors and students feel obliged to meet and maintain.
In 1989, the MHTS was conferred a new name: the Bauman Moscow State Technical University (Bauman MSTU).

Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory- 2015
Monday 29June – Thursday 2July 2015
There is to be a conference on Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory in the Bauman Moscow State Technical University between Monday 29th June to Thursday 2th July 2015,devoted to the 50th Anniversary of the Scientific and Educational Division «Fundamental Sciences» of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
The objectives of this conference are the same as those pursued in the Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory (PIRT) conferences which have been held in Imperial College, London, every two years since 1988. These objectives are the physical, geometrical, and mathematical interpretations of the formal structure of Relativity Theory, and to examine the questions concerning the various interpretations of the accepted mathematical expression of the Relativity Principle.
The Conference Program of the Moscow PIRT-2015 will include papers dealing with the following major themes:-
Cosmology, Gravitation and Space-Time Structure.
Time, Reference Frames and the Fundamentals of Relativity.
Experimental Aspects of Relativity.
Formal Structures and Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory.
Nature and Models of the Physical Vacuum.
Information Theoretical Aspects of Space-Time Structure.
The Poincare-Lorentz and the Einstein-Minkowski expositions of the Relativity Principle.
Analogues of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
Historical and Philosophical Aspects of Relativity.
This is not an exhaustive list, and colleagues wishing to submit papers dealing with different subjects should send an outline of their proposed presentation to the organizers of the Moscow conference.
