He has created the industry's first Doctors' and Ph.D's Thesis committee in "Biomechanics" and was Deputy Chairman of the Board of doctoral theses. He has made hundreds of presentations and publications at International Congresses in the USA, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Japan, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine and Yugoslavia.Dr. Farber has been working in the overlapping of many branches of knowledge, implementing a broad vision of a system. He is the author of fundamental works in bioengineering and biotechnology, mathematical modeling, prosthetics, orthotics, biomechanics, bionics, movement control, kinesiology, electro-stimulation, scoliosis, myoelectric control, ergonomics, rocket-space industry, technologies for post-stroke and post-heart attack treatments, artificial intelligence in expert systems, cancer and atherosclerosis diagnostics, pharmacological biotechnology and nanotechnology, and many more.His research and inventions are based on a strong scientific-mathematical foundation. For instance, he created a set of advanced mathematical models: a mathematical model of anthropomorphic robots for optimization for patients with artificial limbs, based on a system of Lagrangian differential equations; mathematical models of human gait, based on Kelvin-Voigt rheological elements and systems of differential equations; mathematical models for the analysis and synthesis of spatial mechanisms; discrete mathematics models for synthesis elements of anthropomorphic systems; mathematical model for Pacinian vibro-receptors; blood cell morphometric method lymphocyte regression model for cancer diagnostics; combinatorial mathematical model for optimization self-organization and adaptation of molecular robots, etc.Based on this strong, diverse foundation, TRIZ (the theory of inventive problem solving), the laws of system evolution, system vision, and an international patent law education, he is credited with more than 1,000 inventions, scientific articles and books in the aforementioned areas. His four books titled "Theoretical Aspects of Motion Control and Electro-stimulation" became bestsellers for professionals in this domain. He has participated in designing a unique software: Expert Systems for Biomechanical Measurement and Prosthetics and Orthotics Prescription, based on Artificial Intelligence; Interactive Anthropomorphic Models with Kelvin-Voigtviscoelastic elements; and Problem Formulator and Directed Evolution for inventive problem-solving for medical technologies. His pioneer magnetorheological fluid appliances are implemented in a new generation of computer control prosthetics and muscle training machine based on myoelectric control. His inventions attained 6 gold and 1 silver awards during the World Exhibition of Inventions in Brussels and have been produced in the space-rocket industry to date. The inventions have helped hundreds of thousands of patients in rehabilitation and improved their lifestyle. Some of his inventions have been used not only on Earth for patient rehabilitation after strokes, but also in space for spacemen in spaceships as well as for the orbital space station.He has been developing self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical systems in many areas of his research starting from 1971 in Semiconductors, dynamic layered system in 1973, dynamic multiaxial vehicles in 1974. He created the first in the world group of self-adjusted dynamical mechanisms for Bioengineering in 1979; self adjusted dynamical rheological elements based on magnetic liquid for prosthetics and for training devices in 1983. Starting from 1984, he published development forecasts for Prosthetics and Orthotics based on The Laws of System Evolution, which was used for creating a line of pioneer prosthetics and orthotics design. Being the Director of Science at the Central Research Institute of Prosthetics, after discussing a long term program with Genrich Altshuller, he made the next logical step when he applied this approach of self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical system for development different aspects in the medical field, since 1989.He and his associates started research in self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical drugs in 1995. As a result, a new large group was discovered- quasi-living, self-adjusted, self-organizing dynamic medicinal and diagnostic medicines, which represents a revolutionary jump from medicines' static to dynamic drugs with variable structure and synergy. These drugs system have the ability to adjust to the body of each individual, to adapt to its system of receptors. Accordingly, the effectiveness of such drugs is increasing, and the action spectrum extends substantially. The implementation of this approach shows great results. For instance: a dynamic antiviral veterinary drug is produced and shows wide action spectrum and efficacy; hemostatic "Gemma" successfully applied in practice battlefield and saved lives of hundreds of people; and the newly developed quasi-living dry implant can radically change the catheterization practice in surgery. His group continues to research dynamic anti-cancer drug, synergistic quasi-living antibiotics, antiatherosclerotic drugs, antihypertensive drugs, medicines for Alzheimer's disease treatment, for multiple sclerosis and diabetes, pain killer medications, cosmetology, cancer and atherosclerosis diagnostics.In addition to scientific and medical discoveries, Dr. Farber devoted himself to creating a new approach in education based on a strong scientific-mathematical foundation: a unique proprietary Patenting Teaching Object Oriented Method, based on patterns and images; a unified physics education system and decision algorithms for solving logic problems. Students, who took his classes and digested these methods, improved their analytical-thinking skills. He has trained 37 PhDs and Dr. Sci in Biomedical Sciences and thousands of students worldwide in math and science. Many of his former students work for his companies as well as all over the world as scientists, heads of labs, heads of departments, have their own companies and work in the industry using advanced methods and algorithm of thinking.The year 2016 is very special, as it marks the 40th anniversary of Dr. Farber and his colleagues' creation of a unique method of teaching.

Using the image charge theory and finite element methods, we present the first comprehensive study on the optical properties of substrate-supported, three-layer, metal/dielectric/metal nanospheres. By adopting dipolar and quadrupolar approximations of the quasistatic image charge theory, we derive analytical expressions for the polarization-dependent polarizabilities of a three-layer nanosphere near a substrate and use them to find the nanosphere's plasmon resonance wavelengths as functions of the geometric and material parameters of the nanosphere-substrate system. By calculating the resonance wavelength of substrate-supported gold/silica/gold nanosphere over a sufficiently large domain of the nanosphere's dimensions, we show that this wavelength can be tuned from visible to infrared regions by altering only the size of the nanosphere's core. We also show that the resonance position as well as the enhancement and confinement of the near-field can be dynamically tuned over broad ranges by changing the polarization of the excitation light. Of significance for the applicability of our results in practice is that we employ size-dependent permittivity of gold, which allows experimentalists to readily produce these substrate-supported nanospheres with desired optical responses. Upon comparing our analytical results with the results of numerical simulations, we reveal the range of the nanospheres' outer radii within which the dipolar and quadrupolar approximations adequately describe the nanosphere-substrate interaction. Since majority of the optical functions are realized with light polarized parallel to the substrate, our results allow one to readily engineer the broadband optical responses of substrate-supported metal/dielectric/metal nanospheres for applications in resonance-enhanced sensing, in light harvesting, and in biomedicine. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Spaser is a nanoscale source of surface plasmons comprising a plasmonic resonator and gain medium to replenish energy losses. Here we propose a carbon-based spaser design in which a graphene nanoflake (GNF) resonator is coupled to a carbon nanotube (CNT) gain element. We theoretically demonstrate that the optically excited CNT can nonradiatively transfer its energy to the localized plasmon modes of the GNF because of the near-field interaction between the modes and the CNT excitons. By calculating the localized fields of the plasmon modes and the matrix elements of the plasmon-exciton interaction, we find the optimal geometric and material parameters of the spaser that yield the highest plasmon generation rate. The results obtained may prove useful in designing robust and ultracompact coherent sources of surface plasmons for plasmonic nanocircuits. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

We present a scheme for high-precision three-dimensional (3D) localization by the measurement of the atomic-level population. The scheme is applied to a four-level tripod-type atom coupled by three strong standing waves and a probe running wave. As a result, the atom can be localized in volumes that are substantially smaller than a cubic optical wavelength, which is achieved by the increase of standing-wave intensities. The upper-level distribution depends crucially on the atom-field coupling and it forms 3D periodic structures composed of spheres, hourglasses, bowls, donuts, or deformed barrels. © 2014 American Physical Society.

Energetic sensitivity of a system with optical equisignal zone is considered in the paper. Energetic sensitivity is a criterion for choosing components of such a system and determines its potential accuracy. In calculation of this term only monochromatic radiation of sources in previous studies. As we are going to use dispersion method for air refraction influence attenuation, light sources of different wavelengths must be used. Because of dispersion in lenses of the objective the distribution of energetic sensitivity along the distance is different for wavelengths used, and the response of the receiver depends on the wavelength, too. Thus the term of energetic sensitivity is revised for a spectrum and spectral response of the sensor is taken into account. The suggestion of using of effective energetic sensitivity in preliminary assessment of system sensitivity is confirmed by experimental results. © 2013 SPIE.

A new technique for determining the director pretilt angle in cells with hybrid or homeotropic alignment of a nematic liquid crystal has been developed. To use this technique, it is necessary to experimentally determine the transmission of an optical system in parallel polarizers and maximum transmission of a cell in crossed polarizers. The technique makes it possible to locally control the liquid crystal director alignment on an aligning surface. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

In this paper we present MuACOsm - a new method of learning Finite-State Machines (FSM) based on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and a graph representation of the search space. The input data is a set of events, a set of actions and the number of states in the target FSM. The goal is to maximize the given fitness function, which is defined on the set of all FSMs with given parameters. The new algorithm is compared with evolutionary algorithms and a genetic programming related approach on the well-known Artificial Ant problem. Copyright © 2013 ACM.

This paper presents the results of a study of the structural, optical, and photoluminescence properties of a thin layer of oxidized nanoporous silicon doped with erbium ions. Structural studies have shown that silicon nanoclusters of spherical shape with dimensions from 5 to 35 nm are present in the layer. The transmittance of a layer of oxidized nanoporous silicon doped with erbium ions in the wavelength region from 1.2 to 2.0 μm was at least 54%, and this makes it possible to use it to create active planar waveguides that can be used in integrated optical structures of silicon photonics. Investigation of the photoluminescence spectra at temperatures of 100 and 300 K showed the presence of peaks that characterize the luminescence of erbium ions. © 2015 Optical Society of America.
