Abstract

Grigori Kuzmin was a very gifted dynamicist and one of the towering figures in the distinguished history of the Tartu Observatory. He obtained a number of important results in relative isolation which were later rediscovered in the West. This work laid the foundation for further advances in the theory of stellar systems in dynamical equilibrium, thereby substantially increasing our understanding of galaxy dynamics.

Keywords: stellar dynamics galaxies: elliptical and lenticular; cD galaxies; kinematics and dynamics galaxies; structure
