Born March 23, 1934 in Leningrad in a family of famous mathematicians Faddeev and VN Faddeeva. He graduated from the Physics Department of Leningrad State University as a "physics" (1956). He worked in the Leningrad branch of the Institute of Mathematics, Jr., senior research fellow, head of the Laboratory of Mathematical Problems of Physics. Since 1976 - Deputy Director of the Institute of Mathematics Steklov behalf of the St. Petersburg Branch. In 1988 - 1992 years - the director-organizer of the International Mathematical Institute named after L. Euler Sciences. In 1993 he became director of the Institute. In 1959 he defended his thesis on "The properties of S-matrix for scattering on the local potential". In 1963 he became a doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, with a thesis on the results of research in the field of quantum scattering theory for three-particle system. Since 1967 - Professor of Leningrad (St. Petersburg) State University. In 1976 he was elected full member (academician) of the USSR.
