Title: Popov, Berg, Sokolov: A Street with Three Plaques

Abstract

The historic city of Saint Petersburg is full of memorial plaques—ballet dancers, literary giants, composers, war heroes, and even mathematicians. Here, if you go to the metro station Petrogradskaya, cross the bridge over the tiny Karpovka River, and reach ulitsa Professora Popova—Professor Popov Street—then almost surely you are going to one of two destinations. First, perhaps you are going to the Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University, colloquially known as LETI. Second, you may be going for a stroll in the botanical garden of the V. L. Komarov Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
