Prof. Lagutin Anatory from Altai State University Visited Saitama University
A Russian eminent physicist Prof. Lagutin Anatory, Head of Department of Radio Physics and Theoretical Physics,Altai State University visited Saitama University (SU) from October 16th to 19th, 2017. He is one of chair people of a local organizing committee of the 26th E+CRS/35th RCRC that will be held at Altai State University on July 6th to 10th, 2018. (https://ecrs18.asu.ru/event/1/overview)
Prof. Lagutin’s visit to Japan was realized based on his research partnership with Prof. Akeo Misaki, a professor emeritus of SU.
The purpose of his stay was in order to deepen our inter-university partnership between Altai State University and SU. SU has concluded a bilateral memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Altai State University since December 8th, 2015 and we have student exchange every year.
Prof. Lagutin gave two seminars entitled “Anomalous Diffusion of Cosmin Rays in the Galaxy.” He also participated in Prof. Nagasawa’s class “Comparative Higher Education” to introduce Russian education system and gave academic advices to SU students during his stay at SU. He also gave a seminar at Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, Tokyo University on 20th as a guest of SU. (http://www.icrr.u-tokyo.ac.jp/icrr_seminar/abst2017/20171020_Lagutin.html)
He said that it was difficult to give a seminar when he does not know how much knowledge of his field of expertise a listener has. However, his seminar was always persuasive and powerful, and we were fascinated.
We appreciate Prof. Lagutin for his very energetic work in spite of a short stay. We do hope the 26th E+CRS/35th RCRC will result in a success. .
