Boris Feigin is a Russian mathematician and mathematical physicist, former student of D. B. Fuks (Fuchs). His works include fundamental contributions to algebraic K-theory, cyclic homology, Lie theory, especially the cohomology of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, characteristic classes of foliations, representation theory of Virasoro and Kac-Moody Lie algebras and loop groups, semiinfinite cohomology, vertex operator algebras and CFT, geometric Langlands program, quantum groups, deformation theory, integrable systems and algebraic geometry
