My courses are in General Physics for students of the first two years (usually three Therms) of the Belarus State University of Info and Radioelectronics :
Mechanics and Thermodynamics;Electrodynamics and Optics;
I am a theorist. At present, my main research interests lie in the areas of particle physics, gravitational physics and cosmology. In particular, I am working on the model of low-energy quantum gravity having a big possible impact on cosmology.
Summary of Publications
Since approximately 1994, my interests correspond to the topics:
1. Model of the composite fundamental fermions.
2. Manifestations of the background of super-strong interacting gravitons: a possibility of another interpretation of cosmological redshifts; a possible connection with the supernovae 1a dimming; a deceleration of massive bodies and the Pioneer anomaly; a non-universal character of the Hubble diagram for soft and hard radiations; the correction for no time dilation; galaxy/quasar number counts.
3. Gravity as the screening effect: screening the graviton background, pairing gravitons, the gravitonic pressure force, restrictions on a geometrical language in gravity, the connection between Hubble's and Newton's constants in this non-geometrical approach, asymptotic freedom in low-energy quantum gravity and a non-universal transition to it.
4. Discrete symmetries underlying some continuous ones in gravity and particle physics.
A collection of my publications (total 31 entries, the last one of 23 March 2010) is available via the arXiv author identifier service. A few of my papers may be found on the vixra.org archive.

A Brief Bio
My full name in Russian is Михаил Анисимович Иванов. I was born in the Mogilev region of Belarus on 6 February 1948. From 1961, I live in Minsk. I learned physics at the Belarus State University, and graduated from it in 1972. After it, I was a researcher at the Research Institute for Applied Physics Problems of this university during the next 22 years. From 1994, I work as an educator at the Belarus State University of Info and Radioelectronics. I have received my Ph.D. degree from the Belarus State University in 1982.
