Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986), a prominent Russian mathematician and economist, authored several chapters and compiled this guide for students of the math and physics faculties at Leningrad State University. Remarkably, he was only twenty-one years old in 1933. Having entered the university at the age of 14, he swiftly ascended the academic ranks, becoming a professor at twenty and achieving full professorship at Leningrad State University by the age of twenty-two.
