Originally, I dealt with the spectral theory of non-selfadojnt operators in Hilbert space. At the beginning of the century, I changed the field of activity and more than 15 years I deal with the Bellman function method.
For the students who are interested in working under my supervision I would like to explain that the Bellman function method is an instrument for obtaining various estimates in analysis and probability. The method appears rather recently and by this reason, such a field is very profitable for young mathematicians. The fact is that the students have a possibility to deal with the unsolved mathematical problems after the first steps in the domain.
