Yuri Semenovich Kharin (b. 17.09.1949, v. Zyryanskoe, Tomsk region, Russia), a scientist in the field of applied mathematics and computer science. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2004), Doctor of Physico-Mathematical Sciences (1986), Professor (1988). Honored Scientist of the Republic of Belarus (2010). Excellence in Education of the Republic of Belarus (1999). Academician of the International Academy of Higher Education (2001), Honored Worker of BSU (2013). Member of the American Mathematical Society, Computer Society, International Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Bernoulli Society.
Scientific research on the development of mathematical models, methods, algorithms and software for sustainable (robust) statistical recognition and analysis of stochastic data when creating computer systems for processing and protecting information. Developed a theory of robust statistical pattern recognition and data analysis, on the basis of which new minimally stable (to the distortion of a hypothetical model) pattern recognition, identification and prediction algorithms were built, guaranteeing the least risk evasion on given distortions implemented in software systems and allowing to solve the most important applied problems the introduction of information technology in industry, medicine and economics. He developed methods and algorithms for recognition and statistical analysis of discrete time series used in the creation and evaluation of the reliability of information protection systems. He made a great contribution to the formation and development in the Republic of Belarus of the current direction of information technology - cryptology - the science of mathematical and computer methods of information protection.
Author of more than 600 scientific papers, incl. 8 monographs, 26 textbooks and manuals.
Prize of the Council of Ministers of the USSR (1984). Prize named after A.N. Sevchenko (1997). State Prize of the Republic of Belarus in the field of science and technology (2002).
