Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky (1792-1856), a Russian mathematician, is known as the creator of non-Euclidean geometry. From 1827 to 1846 he used to be the Chancellor of the Kazan University. Lobachevsky's discovery of 1826 (published in 1829-1830), ignored by his contemporaries, was a breakthrough in the understanding of the nature of space, which for more than 2000 years had been based on Euclid's assumptions, and had a tremendous impact on the development of mathematical thinking. Lobachevsky wrote works on algebra, mathematical analysis, the probability theory, mechanics, physics and astronomy.
