Alexander Fedorovich Chernyavsky (b. 14.09.1938, Ryazan, Russia), a scientist in the field of informatics. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1994; corresponding member since 1986), Doctor of Engineering Sciences (1973), Professor (1978). Honored Worker of Science and Technology of the BSSR (1979).
Scientific research on the development of physical and technical methods and measuring and computing means of automated information processing. He developed methods of parallel-conveyor information processing, the principles of structural construction of measuring transducers and digital devices of modular express data processing, the corresponding microelectronic element base. Developed a theory of positional code conversion into a minimally redundant modular code and computer-algorithmic tools for performing modular operations for multi-machine and multiprocessor modular information processing technology, which allows for fast and high-precision calculations in digital signal processing, digital data; methods, algorithms and software of flexible information technologies intended for use in various systems; method and technique for controlling the parameters of pulsed charged particle accelerator diodes using a laser-plasma cathode.
Author of more than 300 scientific papers, incl. 8 monographs and 77 inventions.
Prize of the Council of Ministers of the USSR in 1984 for the creation and introduction of automated learning systems into the educational process. State Prize of the BSSR in 1986 for the development and introduction into practice of optical-physical studies of statistical methods for the temporary analysis of rapidly varying light radiation. State Prize of the USSR in 1991 for the development and introduction of position-modular-type measurement systems in the national economy.
