Various classes of functions with zero integrals over all balls of a fixed radius are studied. For functions in such classes a description in the form of a series in special functions is obtained and a uniqueness theorem is proved. There results make it possible to solve completely the problem of existence of a non-trivial function with zero integrals over balls of radius assuming either of two given values. Also there results make it possible to solve completely the support problem for several classes of functions with zero ball averages. As consequence, a far-reaching generalization of the well-known Zalcman's two-radii theorem is obtained. A solution of the local Pompeiu problem is obtained for functions with vanishing integrals over parallelepipeds lying in a fixed ball. A solution of the problem of describing the kernel of the Radon transform over a sphere with respect to sets with spherical symmetry is obtained. The solution enabled us, in particular, to characterize all injectivity sets of this type. The technique used in the proofs enabled us to obtain other exact results concerning spherical means, namely, new two-radii theorems and a uniqueness theorem.
Graduated from Mathematical Faculty of Donetsk State University in 1965 (department of mathematical analysis and theory of functions). Ph. D. thesis was defended in 1991. D. Sci. thesis was defended in 1997. A list of my works contains more than 60 titles.
In 1975 I was awarded the prize of the European Academy.
