A solution of Golubev"s problem was given on Laurent generalized representation of an arbitrary function analytic in the complement of a simple rectifiable arc. A new approach to separation of singularities of analytic functions (the Poincare–Aronszajn theorem) was found. Conditions were found ensuring the separation of singularities preserving the uniform boundedness (joint work with A. Nersessyan). For some classes of functions analytic in a disc the invariance under division by an inner function is proved. The phenomenon of the twofold decrease of smoothness of an analytic function compared with the smoothness of its modulus on the boundary is studied ; "the smoothness" can be understood in various senses. Integral analogs of the Vitushkin theorem on the uniform rational approximation were obtained; in the mean square case the role of analytic capacity is played by the classical logarithmic capacity. In a series of joint publications with V. G. Maz'ya "the nonlinear potrential theory" was founded and applied to problems of uniqueness and approximation for analytic and harmonic functions. Some problems posed by S. N. Mergelyan were solved on the solutions of the Cauchy problem for the Laplace equation. (Some rather complete results on "the free solvability" of the Cauchy problem for harmonic functions of two varables were obtained in a joint work with J. Bourgain, A. Aleksandrov, M. Giesecke, and Yu. Vymenets). In a joint work with B. Joericke free interpolation by harmonic functions (in the spirit of Carleson–Garnett) was studied when the interpolation data are defined on a subset of the closed domain and on a part of the boudary. In a series of joint works with B. Joericke some "uncertainty principles" were proved for the convolution integral operators. A monograph (by V. Havin and B. Joericke) is devoted to the uncertainty principle in Fourier analysis ("a non zero function and its Fourier image cannot be too small simultaneously"). In a series of joint works with A. Presa, Ye. Malinnikova, and S. Smirnov approximation properties of harmonic vector fields and differential forms were studied; multidimensional analogs of the Runge theorem and Hartogs–Rosental theorem were proved, and it was shown that the analog of Bishop's localization principle is not valid in dimensions higher than two. In a joint work with J. Mashreghi some "multiplier theorems" (in the spirit of Beurling–Malliavin) for "model subspaces" (i.e. inverse shift invariant) of the Hardy space were obtained. An uncertainty principle for M. Riesz potentials on the line was found; its sharpness was proved in a joint work with D. Belyaev.
Graduated from department of mathematics and mechanics of Leningrad State University. Ph.D. thesis was defended in 1958. D.Sci. thesis was defended in 1969. The list of my works contains 100 titles (appr.) including one monograph and three textbooks. Since 1963 I lead a joint seminar of Steklov Institute and St. Petersburg State University on function operator theory (until 1991 we led the seminar with N. K. Nikolskii). 26 Ph.D. theses were written under my supervision; 8 of my former Ph.D. students are now doctors of sciences, and three of them are the Salem Prize winners (the Prize was founded by the Paris Academy).
I lectured and held visiting positions in many universities and mathematical institutes of the former USSR (Moscow, Kharkov, Rostov, Yerevan, Vladivostok, Novosibirsk, Tashkent, Vilnyus), in Cuba (Oriente), and also in many universities abroad (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Chech Republic, Poland, USA, Canada, Spain, Norway, France, Israel). I taught 7 semesters at McGill university (Montreal). I took part in many conferences. In 1993 I got a Ph.D. degree honoris causa at Linkoping University (Sweden) and became the Onsager Professor-2000 at Trondheim University (Norway). In 1996 I gave a Spencer lecture at the Kansas State University. I also got awards of Ministery of Education of Russian Federation and of St. Petersburg State University.
