Russian mathematician who posed the "Suslin Problem" in topology. The Suslin Problem refers to separable, connected linear spaces and setting limits on the properties of such spaces. The problem was shown to be unsolvable within the framework set by the axioms (basic rules) of set theory. This result, in turn, has had interesting implications for both set theory and topology.
