Nikolai Krylov graduated from the St. Petersburg Mining Institute in 1902, and later served as a professor at the Institute in 1912-1917 years. In 1917 he moved to the Crimea, where until 1922 served as a professor of the Crimean University; since 1917 as a professor of the University of Kiev. In 1922-1945 he headed the Department of Mathematical Physics of the Academy of Sciences.

Academician Krylov published over 180 books and articles on mathematical physics and mathematics ..

Major works are interpolation, approximate integration of differential equations of mathematical physics, nonlinear mechanics. A number of new methods for solving problems of mathematical physics, applies both to prove the existence of solutions, as well as for their actual construction. Since 1932, NM Krylov, together with Academician Nikolai Nikolaevich Bogolyubov most of the time his scientific work devoted problems of the theory of nonlinear oscillatory processes, where Krylov was able to lay the foundations of nonlinear mechanics. He was awarded the Order of Lenin, two other orders and medals.

For fruitful scientific activity Nicholas Krylovuv 1929 was awarded the title of Honored Worker of Science of the USSR. He was elected a corresponding member of Koimbraskogo Universita (1924, Portugal), a member of the American Mathematical Society (1924), the French Physical Society (1924), the Italian Mathematical Association (1924), the French Mathematical Society (1924), the Mathematical Society in Palermo (1924).
