These are the people from whom I (hopefully) have inherited
in science after my Master's level.
(I am also indebted to
Igor Kozhukhov and Sergey Bezriadin for their excellent teaching
at the Physics and
Mathematics High School No. 1030 in Zelenograd
where I got most of my basic training, and to Yuri Bogdanov
who inspired my interest in applied statistics.)
