Education and Scientific Work

Asker Ali Abiyev was born on June 28th, 1934 in Baku, Azerbaijan. He studied in faculty of Physics-Mathematics in Azerbaijan State University from 1954 until 1957, and in faculty of Physics in Lomonosov Moscow State University from 1957 until 1961. Then, he worked in the Institute of Physics of University Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences in years 1961-1963. He continued his education as a post-graduate in Kurchatov Institute of Atomic Energy from 1963 through 1966, and returned to the Institute of Physics of University Azerbaijan National Academy in 1966.

Since 1969, he worked as a Junior Researcher, then Senior Researcher at Radiation Problems Sector of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences, then, starting 1976 until 1993 as the head of the Laboratory of “Radiation Physics of Semiconductors”.

In 1993, he went to Ankara, Turkey to work as a professor at Yavuz Sultan Private Science Lyceum until 2000, and from 2000 until 2007 worked as a professor in the Department of Mathematics at Gaziantep University in Gaziantep, Turkey.

In 1970 and 1988, Abiyev defended dissertations in the field of “Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics” and got his Candidate of Physical-Mathematical Sciences and Doctor of Physical-Mathematical Sciences titles respectively, and later in 1990, Professor title of Physical-Mathematical Sciences.

His main scientific achievements in physics are: research of creation and annealing kinetics of radiation defects in semiconductors in impulse electron accelerator, in a specifically made device, for the first time ever; idefication of new technical application fields of the aforementioned semiconductors.

Discovery of Magic Squares and Cubes

In 1996, Abiyev discovered an algorithm for writing Magic Squares and Cubes. This algorithm allows the creation of Magic Squares and Cubes of any order from any numbers or symbols. It can open great new perspectives on optimization problems, cryptology, genetic engineering and information technology. Using this algorithm, the pattern of the order of elemenets in the periodic table was discovered. In this table, the atomic number of the last element was discovered as well.

Other Activities

Currently, he has had over 115 scientific papers, 5 copyright certificates and patents, and is the author of the book “The Natural Code of Numbered Magic Squares” (Ankara, 1996).

Since 2009, he has been the principal of the “Electron Accelerator” Scientific-Experimental Department of the Institute of Radiation Problems of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences.

He has participated as a speaker in various international symposiums and conferences in Baku (Azerbaijan), Ankara, Antalya, Gaziantep, Sakarya, Van (Turkey), Barcelona (Spain), Wiesbaden (Germany), Kazan (Russia), Ballarat (Australia), Prague (Czech Republic), Porto (Portugal), Kiev (Ukraine) and other locations.
