Moscow State University of Railway Engineering, until recently named after L.M Kaganovich , or Russian: Московский государственный университет путей сообщения, is the leading and largest higher education institution in the field of railway transport in Moscow, Russia, with more than 17,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. In Soviet times, along with the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, MIIT was known for giving Jewish applicants a fairer chance at admission, while other universities tacitly instituted quotas and impediments for students of Jewish origin. Every year about 25,000 top managers and specialists take professional development courses at MIIT. Wikipedia.

When designing beams and plates laying on a continuous elastic foundation, the simplest foundation model proposed by Winkler is normally used. This hypothesis was frequently criticized with good reason, for it does not consider involvement in the work of those areas of the foundation in the vicinity of the concentrated reaction point. In order to refine Winkler’s hypothesis, numerous authors have proposed other models that enable the drawbacks of Winkler’s model to be smoothed out to different degrees. In recent years, a different approach to solving the same problems is considered when the foundation is regarded as nonlocally elastic. Here, the effect of nonlocality of the foundation on the deformed state and the stability of beams and plates laying on a continuous elastic foundation is analyzed. © 2016, Allerton Press, Inc.

Nutrition is an important indicator of quality of life, an element of national security. The article reviews the formation of the food consumption geography. The differences in food consumption among Russia's regions are shown in the dynamics from 1990 to 2013. They are caused by the influence on food patterns of such factors as natural conditions, level of regional socioeconomic development, local traditions associated with the agricultural profile of an area, living standards, ethnic nutrition traditions, etc. The well-being of regions with higher food consumption levels depends mainly on economic conditions or on favorable natural living conditions. The following trends have been identified: an increase in consumption of vegetables in most regions; a decrease in consumption of dairy products in Russia in general, and especially in regions with traditional dairy farming; and a significant increase in consumption of potatoes and bread in the North Caucasian republics. The paper represents the results of a food pattern cluster analysis of Russia's regions in 1990 and 2013. © 2016 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Source

We introduce the notion of a pseudotoric structure on a symplectic manifold, generalizing the notion of a toric structure. We show that such a pseudotoric structure can exist on toric and nontoric symplectic manifolds. For the toric manifolds, it describes deformations of the standard toric Lagrangian fibrations; for the nontoric ones, it gives Lagrangian fibrations with singularities that are very close to the toric fibrations. We present examples of toric manifolds with different pseudotoric structures and prove that certain nontoric manifolds (smooth complex quadrics) have such structures. In the future, introducing this new structure can be useful for generalizing the geometric quantization and mirror symmetry methods that work well in the toric case to a broader class of Fano varieties. © MAIK/Nauka 2010.

Localized waves near the stress-free surface or the free edge of a solid with a thin nematic coating are investigated. The nematic media is described using an approximate linear low-frequency model. Being a non-traditional material this medium possesses a strong anisotropy of elastic and viscous properties and some additional freedom caused by the long polymer chain and molecules. As shown, the specific wave phenomena, observed earlier in the infinite nematic media, in the case of a coating with finite thickness lead to the appearance of the quasi-resonance zones where the phase speed and the attenuation of waves in heterogeneous composites are strongly perturbed. © 2011 SAGE Publications.

The paper deals with the stability of an infinitely long beam lying on a solid elastic base and subjected to a constant or time-periodically varying longitudinal force. The beam material is characterized by nonlocally viscoelastic properties. Stability is understood as asymptotic stability in the sense of Lyapunov. The influence of the loading parameters and the parameters characterizing the nonlocal viscoelastic properties of the beam material on buckling and stability is analyzed. Stability is analyzed by using the maximum Lyapunov exponent. © 2016, Allerton Press, Inc. Source
