Vitt, Aleksandr Adol’fovich


Born 1902; died 1937. Soviet physicist. One of the founders of a school of specialists in the area of the theory of nonlinear oscillation.

Vitt graduated from Moscow State University in 1924 and became a professor there. Together with A. A. Andronov, he developed a rigorous mathematical theory of autooscillation and laid the basis for a statistical theory of autooscillatory systems with distributed parameters. Vitt wrote (with S. E. Khaikin and Andronov) the classic monograph Theory of Oscillations (1937).
