Shaikhet received the M.Sc. degree in mathematics from Donetsk State University
(Ukraine) in 1971, the Ph.D degree (candidate of science) from Kiev Institute
of Mathematics (Ukraine) in 1981 and the Dr. Phys.-Math. Sc. from Kiev State
University in 1991. During 1992-2015 he was Professor and Head of Mathematical
Department in Donetsk State University of Management. From 2016 until now he is
a Research Professor of School of Electrical Engineering in Tel-Aviv University
and of Department of Mathematics in Ariel University, Israel. His basic
research interests include stability and optimal control of stochastic
time-delay systems. He is the author of 5 monographs: 1. Andreeva E.A., Kolmanovskii V.B., Shaikhet L.E. Control
