Abstract: On July 3, ninety years will have passed after the birthday of Dmitrii Vasil’evich Volkov, an outstanding physicist, Honoured Science Worker, Academician of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, one of the pioneers of the theory of supersymmetry and supergravity, who made the fundamental contribution to elementary particle physics and quantum field theory. In his works, D.V. Volkov laid the foundation of the new approach to the understanding of the spacetime structure and the unification of quantum theory with general relativity. After the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN in 2013, the detection of new particles predicted by supersymmetry became one of the top priorities in the research program of the Large Hadron Collider.
