Abstract: May 3, 2016 marks the 100-th anniversary of the birth of Kirill Borisovich Tolpygo, a prominent theoretical physicist, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, who is recognized for his fundamental contributions to solid state physics and biophysics: theory of interatomic interactions and crystal lattice dynamics; band theory of semiconductors and dielectrics; theory of excitonic and impurity states in crystals; crystal optics; theory of kinetic phenomena in solids; theory of defects and defect formation; theory of molecular mechanisms of mutations; and theory of chemical energy conversion into mechanical energy at the muscle contraction and other conformation changes of biopolymers. K.B. Tolpygo was an eminent scientist, teacher, and science promoter recognized for mentoring and advising several generations of physicists and founding new schools of theoretical physics and biophysics in Ukraine...

Key words: K.B. Tolpygo, scientist, biophysics.
