Breviario hispanoamericano de letras- the first in Russia Anthology of Latin American literature by RUDN professor Olga Chesnokova and Pedro Leonardo Talavera-Ibarra has been published in RUDN publishing house.
Latin American literature is a unique phenomenon in world literature combining European, Indian and African features. The anthology contains original samples of verbal art of ancient civilizations of Latin America, texts of eminent representatives of Latin American literature of late XIX - early XXI century reflecting different literary trends. The chosen texts are aimed at motivating students to independent work with the original texts.
Professor Olga Chesnokova — Doctor in Philological sciences, professor of the department of foreign languages of the Philological faculty, expert in variations of the Spanish language, theory and practice of intercultural communication, Latin American Toponomy and semiotics of literary texts.
Pedro Leonardo Talavera-Ibarra – RUDN graduate, Doctor in comparative literary studies in Texas University, USA, professor of the department of foreign languages Of Southern University, Missouri, USA, expert in comparative poetics, Spanish and Latin American civilization and distant teaching of Spanish and literature.
A RUDN chemist has obtained a new compound — a dumbbell-shaped phosphate-bridged molybdenum cluster. The cluster accelerates the reaction of the formation of sulfides from oxides and can be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing.
Mathematicians from RUDN University have studied the properties of compositional operators in spaces with mixed Lebesgue norms. It will help describe the diffusion of liquids in materials with cracks and in porous materials. Such spaces are also useful for obtaining estimates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation.
A biophysicist from RUDN University and his colleagues modelled the molecular dynamics of growth of microtubules, the most important elements of cell activity. The researchers have built a model for the interaction of microtubule subunits, which takes into account their internal and external connections. The results will help form a more complete model of the dynamic instability of microtubules. It will allow choosing chemical agents for the treatment of certain diseases, including neoplasms and neurodegenerative pathologies.
