Joseph Bernstein

Joseph Bernstein is an Israeli mathematician, born and educated in Russia (his Russian name iss Иосиф Наумович Бернштейн, transliterated as Josif/Iosif Naumovič Bernštejn); his teacher there was Israel Gel'fand. His numerous works (especically with Alexander Beilinson) brought to proliferation of sheaf-theoretic and algebro-geometric methods in representation theory (D-modules, perverse sheaves, Beilinson-Bernstein localization theory), and are now cornerstones of geometric representation theory. With V. Lunts he introduced the appropriate definition of equivariant derived category (in general not equivalent to the (naive) derived category of equivariant sheaves).
