Another student of Moscow State University, under the influence of A. A. Lyapunov he became interested in programming. After university, and. P.
In 1957. he was appointed head of department of automation of programming in the newly formed Computing Center of USSR Academy of Sciences. In connection with the formation of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences at the request of the Director of Institute of Mathematics of the USSR Academy of Sciences Academician C. L. Sobolev, he assumes the duty of the organizer and de facto head of programming of the institution, and then passes the Computer Center of SB RAS.
Fundamental Research A. P. Ershov in program schemes and the theory of compilation had a marked influence on his numerous disciples and followers. Book A. P. Ershov, programming program for an electronic computer BESM "was one of the world's first monographs on the automation of programming.
For significant contribution to the theory of mixed computation A. P. Ershov was given an award named after academician AN Krylov.
