# Matematicheskii Sbornik

* Matematicheskii Sbornik* (Russian: Математический сборник, abbreviated

*Mat. Sb.*) is a peer reviewed Russian mathematical journal founded by the Moscow Mathematical Society in 1866.

^{[1]}It is the oldest successful Russian mathematical journal.

^{[2]}The English translation is

*Sbornik: Mathematics*. It is also sometimes cited under the alternative name

*Izdavaemyi Moskovskim Matematicheskim Obshchestvom*or its French translation

*Recueil mathématique de la Société mathématique de Moscou*,

^{[3]}but the name

*Recueil mathématique*is also used for an unrelated journal,

*Mathesis*. Yet another name,

*Sovetskii Matematiceskii Sbornik*, was listed in a statement in the journal in 1931 apologizing for the former editorship of Dmitri Egorov, who had been recently discredited for his religious views; however, this name was never actually used by the journal.

^{[4]}

The first editor of the journal was Nikolai Brashman, who died before its first issue (dedicated to his memory) was published.^{[5]} Its current editor-in-chief is Boris Sergeevich Kashin.^{[6]}

## Selected articles

Notable articles published in *Matematicheskii Sbornik* have included:

- Соболев, С. (1938), Об одной теореме функционального анализа [On a theorem of functional analysis],
*Mat. Sb.*(in Russian),**4**: 471–497. Translated in*Transl. Amer. Math. Soc.*34 (2): 39–68, 1963. This paper by Sergei Sobolev introduced Sobolev spaces and Sobolev inequalities. In 2009, Laurent Saloff-Coste wrote that "there are few articles that have turned out to be as influential and important."^{[7]}

## English translation

From 1967 to 1993 (volumes 1-74) the English version was titled *Mathematics of the USSR. Sbornik* (ISSN 0025-5734).

Since 1993 (volumes 75-) it has been titled *Sbornik. Mathematics* and abbreviated *Sb. Math.* (ISSN 1064-5616).

From 1995 the translation has been published jointly by the London Mathematical Society, Turpion Ltd,^{[8]} and the Russian Academy of Sciences. The volume numbering was also changed and now follows the Russian original journal *Matematicheskii Sbornik*.
