This book is, to some extent, a continuation of the collection “Essays on the History of Computer Science in Russia” published in 1998 in Novosibirsk. The scientific schools of A.I. Berg, I.S. Bruk, L.V. Kantorovich, S.A. Lebedev, A.A. Lyapunov, A.A. Markov and other famous scientists took the decisive part in the origin and development of Russian computer science.

The present book is devoted to these people and their followers. The reader will find here numerous biographical essays, reminiscences, archive materials, etc. Most of the papers are published for the first time.

The book is addressed to general reader interested in the history of science and the lives of outstanding people.
