Victor Iosifovich Belinicher was my PhD and Diploma thesis advisor.
He tragically died in an airplane disaster on October 4, 2001 at the
age of 55.

Here I have a collection of some of the
Victor's works, the works published in his honor, as well as
obituaries describing his contribution to physics, his life as a
teacher, a colleague, and a friend.
