Abstract: Oleksandr Sergiyovych Davydov was born on December 26, 1912 in a town of Yevpatoria, in worker’s family. He finished the secondary school in 1930 and moved to Moscow in the spring of 1931, where has started to work as a grinder at the AMO automobile plant.
Thirst for knowledge, which revealed itself in the young man as early as his school days, brought him in 1932 to workers’ courses at the Moscow State University (MSU). In a year, Oleksandr Sergiyovych became a first-year student at the Faculty of Physics of the MSU. Being yet a student, O.S. Davydov showed his unordinary abilities of a physicist-theorist. In the fifth-year of the study, he carried out, under the supervision of Prof. V.S. Fursov, his first scientific work on the statistical theory of light scattering in condensed media and attracted attention of the university lecturers...
Key words: Davydov, physicist-theorist, statistical theory of light scattering.
