Peter M. Akhmet'ev was preparing his Ph.D. in 1989 under Prof. M. M. Postnikov in the Moscow Steklov Mathematical Institute. His thesis was dedicated to geometrical problems in Algebraic L-theory, concerning splitting obstructions. After he start to work in Differential and Geometric Topology and Mathematical Physics. His main results are following.
1) Application of Stable Homotopy in Geometric Topology. For example, Hopf invariant one problem: an arbitrary map $S^n\to S^n$, $n\ne 2$ can be approximated by an embedding in $R^{2n}$ if $n\ne 1,3$, or $7$.
2) A number of results concerning applications of Immersion Theory in Pseudo-isotopy Theory [1].
3) New geometrical proofs of classical results in Stable Homotopy groups of Spheres (join with P. J. Eccles and A. Szucs) [2], [3].
4) A number of results in Mathematical Physics, concerning 3D analytical models of Electromagnetic Field and application of Link Theory in Magnetic Hydrodynamic.
