nLab Andrey Tikhonov

Андрей Николаевич Тихонов was a Russian mathematician and geophysicist, known for his contributions to topology and functional analysis, but also mathematical physics.

Concepts named after him include Tychonoff space, Tychonoff product, Tychonoff's theorem.

Beware that spelling varies, other common uses are Tihonov and Tikhonov. The original Тихонов, becomes Tihonov in the transliteration used in slavistics or Andrey Nikolayevich Tikhonov in modern English (BGN/PCGN) transliteration. But notice that he himself originally published in German as A.N. Tychonoff (e.g. Tychonoff 30, Tychonoff 35).
