Talk about teaching. On November 20, 1981, V.A.Rokhlin gave a talk Teaching mathematics to nonmathematicians to the Leningrad Mathematical Society. The lecture was tape recorded. Here are Russian transcript of its fragments, its English translation and the same texts in the format of pdffiles: Russian and English.
Pictures. Here are a few pictures of him.
The second picture is of 1966, the third
one is of about the same time.
I was fortunate to be a student of Vladimir Abramovich Rokhlin.
I encountered him in 1966. Then I was a freshman student at the Mathematics and Mechanics faculty of Leningrad State University. In the fall of 1966, Rokhlin gave a lecture course in Topology for sophomores. Together with my five friends  freshmen, I attended his lectures and passed the exam then, a year ahead of time. I was truly fascinated by him, and eager to learn from him.
Two years later I chose the department (kafedra) of High Geometry for specialization and asked Vladimir Abramovich to be my advisor. He was my advisor also later, in the graduate school. After graduation I worked in the same department of High Geometry, and Vladimir Abramovich remained my advisor, although informally. I am very indebted to him. To me, he was really the Teacher.
