Pioneer linear programming, owner of the Nobel Prize for Economics 1975

His father was a doctor named Vitalij (Vitalij Kontorovich, 1855-1922), and the mother was a dentist named Paulina (Saks) Grigoryevna, 1874-1942).

During the People's War (Civil War, 1917-1921), his family moved to Belarus.

His father died. After that, the mother served as the head of the family.

1926 enrolled at Leningrad State University in mathematics.

1930 Bachelor's Degree and further study

At the age of 22, after graduating, worked as a professor at the University of New Year. Leningrad, along with his work at the Institute of Industrial Construction Engineering, where he oversaw work in plywood production.

1935 received a Ph.D.

1938 married Natalia (Natalia Ilyina), who was a doctor. Later they had three children together.

In 1939, invented a arithmetic technique that today is called linear programming. He came up with this method to find the most effective method of producing plywood.

Write a book Математические методы организации и планирования производства (The Mathematical Method of Production Planning and Organization), which presents the linear programming he invented to solve production problems.

Received the position of a professor at the Military Engineering-Technical University. vitt.vamto.mil.ru) in St.

In 1941, when Leningrad was surrounded by Nazi Germans, Khantorovi worked at the Higher School for Naval Engineers in St. Petersburg. This road is called Road of Life (Road of Life, Дорога жизни).
