Toshmuhammad Sarimsoqov (Uzbek Cyrillic: Тошмуҳаммад Алиевич Саримсоқов Tashmukhamed Alievich Sarymsakov; 17 December 1995) was an Uzbek mathematician who served as president of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan SSR from 1947 to 1952.

Early life and education

Born in 1915 in Shahrixon to an Uzbek family, in 1931 he graduated from a Russian secondary school in Kokand; he subsequently enrolled in the Central Asia State University. There, he was one of the first students of Vsevolod Ivanovich Romanovsky. After graduating from the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the university in 1936, he remained at the university, where he attended graduate school. At the same time, he worked as assistant and associate professor. After briefly serving in the Red Army he returned to the university in 1942 to defend his doctoral dissertation. That year he received his Doctor of Sciences degree.[1][2][3][4]

He became a member of the Communist party in 1944 and served as a deputy in the 3rd convocation of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR.[5][6]


In 1943 he became the rector of his university, and held that post until June 1944. When the Academy of Sciences of the Uzbek SSR was founded in 1943, he became its vice president. In 1947 he became its president, and held the post until 1952. He then returned to being the rector of Central Asia State University, where he remained until 1958. From 1959 to 1971 he served as the minister of higher education of the Uzbek SSR before again returning to being the rector of the university, which had been renamed to Tashkent State University in 1960. In 1983 he returned to working at the Academy of Sciences of the Uzbek SSR, and in 1988 he became advisor to the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences of the Uzbek SSR. His main areas of study were probability, statistics, and functional analysis. During his career he authored over 170 academic papers. His work on the theory of inhomogeneous Markov chains is widely cited in modern academic papers. For his work, he was awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labour on 3 April 1990. After Uzbekistan became independent he worked as an advisor to the President of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan. He died in Tashkent on 18 December 1995.[1][7][8][9]
