1. Born in: Slobozia Mare, Ismail county, Romania, on 20 January 1932
Romanian high school: Cahul, Republic of Moldova, 1949;
MSc: Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Department of Astronomy
Lomonosov University, Moscow, 1954;
PhD: Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Department of Astronomy
Lomonosov University, Moscow, 1957
3. Left Romania in:
After the political events of 1940 and 1944,
I became citizen of the USSR. I left Bassarabia (Republic of Moldova) in 1949 to continue my studies in Moscow.
4. Some personal data:
I married Valentina Matov (who is working since 1958 in the Section of Astrometry of the "Sternberg" Institute, Moscow) in 1958. I have three
sons: Andrei, Alexandru, and Victor, who graduated from the "Lomonosov" University in Moscow (Andrei - the Faculty of Geology; the other two -
the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Department of Mathematics).
5. Relatives still living in Romania?
No. My father, Alexandru Grebenicov (1898-1941), born and dead at Cahul, was an orthodox priest. My mother, Dana Grebenicov (1899-1966), was born
in Dobrodja, near Galati, and dead in Kishinew. She graduated from the Normal School of Galati approximately in 1916-1918, and worked all her
life in Bassarabia. She was a school-mistress for 42 years.
6. The most important works:
I published 22 monographs and more that 200 scientific papers.
My researches cover the domain of the analytic and qualitative problems of celestial mechanics and applied mathematics. More concretely: the generalized problem of two fixed centres, and the asymptotic theory of multi-frequency (resonant) O.D.E., which is a constructive continuation of Bogolyubov - Krylov theory. These equations are the basic equations in many domains, as: celestial mechanics, cosmic geodesy, nuclear physics, gyroscopy, etc.

I was the scientific advisor for more than 40 PhD's. My students are working in many countries (Israel, Moldova, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, USA, etc.
My name was assigned to an asteroid: 4268 Grebenikov.
