LAST INTERVIEW: ON THE HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERY OF DIAMONDFIELDS
 
Few months ago, after the publication “The Way to Diamonds” in “Vostochno-Sibirskaya Pravda”, I have got a call from Ol’ga Vital’evna, the widow of the late Corresponding Member M. Odintsov who have discovered the Yakutian diamond fields. She was very grateful for warm recollections of her late husband, and has proposed to meet each other. The interview was very impressive, but I have decided to write about it later, and now I feel sorry, since Ol’ga Vital’evna has recently passed away. I indebted these notes to her, her will.

FOLKS ORNAMENT AND COMPUTERS
 
The idea of computer design and modeling of ornaments belongs to my instructor, Dr. Sc. (Technology), Professor of Saint-Petersburg Technical University Igor Borisovich Chelpanov. It turned out that the world of ornament is vast and diverse, it has its own rules of life and evolution. All the more, it was interesting to automate this primarily manual creative process of designing the tracery and applying it to workpiece, at the same time retaining the creative character of the process itself. And since I live and work in Buryatia, we have started to explore national Mongol-Buryatian ornament.
