Subject: Obituary: Olga S. Kulagina


30th August 2005, in Moscow, after heavy disease, Prof. Olga Sergeevna
Kulagina died.

She was one of the pioneers of the modern mathematical linguistics and
the theory of machine translation. Her work about the definition of
the main grammatical notions on the base of the mathematical set
theory (1957) was the source of the Soviet mathematical linguistics
(model-theoretical linguistics), and, generally speaking, algebraic
models in linguistics in general. Among her other works several books
about the French-Russian automatic translation systems should be
mentioned. Olga S. Kulagina worked in the Institute of Applied
Mathematics, Russian Academy of Sciences.
