Hongkun Zhang miss him October 15, 2015

A thousand times we needed him
A thousand times we cried
If love alone could have saved him
he never would have left us......

Veta, be strong! As we all love you.....

Venera and Boris Khoromskij Senior Scientists, Max-Planc Institute, Leipzig May 2, 2015
Kolya was our dear friend and colleague since many years ago at JINR Institute in Dubna.
He was a great personality, very gentle and intelligent, ready to help and understand.
Kolya was an outstanding mathematician.
It is so unfair that Kolya passed away so early. It was so painful
when everything happened, and it is still hard to believe.
There are no words to express our sadness and sorrow that Kolya is not
with us, that we never hear his gentle voice by telephone.
He will always be in our hearts and memories.

As a "grandstudent" of Dr. Chernov's, he and his work were hugely inspring to me, and I've had many interactions with professors, advisors, and fellow students whose lives he had an amazingly positive impact on. Your life and accomplishments carry on in the hearts and memories of us all.
Hongkun Zhang Miss you at this white Christmas! December 21, 2014

Elena Светлая память September 16, 2014
40 дней уже прошло... И до сих пор не верится Соболезнования Вете, Севе, Мосе, держитесь. Я не знаю, каким он был ученым, я ничего не понимала в его работе. Для меня он брат, старший, надежный, который всегда поможет. Светлая ему память!

40 days have passed ... And I still can not believe. Condolences Veta, Seva, Mose, hold on. I do not know how he was
 a scientist, I do not understand his work. For me he is a brother, a senior, reliable,  always willing to help. Blessed memory!

The disappearance of Nikolai saddens me deeply; we will always remember him as a gentle and kind person and a great mathematician
Melissa Browne Birmingham Alabama August 29, 2014
Dr. Chernov was a huge help and inspiration to me. A wonderful teacher. He helped me get over a lifelong fear of math. I will always remember his kindness and sense of humor.
Bob Dorfman College Park, Maryland August 29, 2014
Kolya was a great mathematician and an inspiring colleague. His death at such a young age is a great tragedy, and he is greatly missed.
Marco Lenci Professor, Universita' di Bologna August 28, 2014
Kolya was an outstanding mathematician and a truly kind human being. He gave so much to the field of hyperbolic dynamics and especially chaotic billiards, where he was one of the highest regarded people on the planet. He especially gave so much to his colleagues, young and less young, in terms of ideas, discussions, mentorship, teaching... He was always generous with his time and with his talents, as I've experienced first-hand many times. Though he was a rather shy person, everyone in the community was aware of his tremendous worth, as a scientist and as a colleague. Personally, the environment that he and a few other leaders created in the field of billiards is one of the reasons why I enjoy being in it. We all liked Kolya, and will miss him very much.
Matthew Nicol Professor, University of Houston August 28, 2014
I was very sorry to learn that Nikolai had passed away. He has been an inspiration to me scientifically  and he was also a very kind person. Please convey my sympathy to his wife and sons. 
Carl Dettmann Professor, University of Bristol, UK August 28, 2014
This is very sad news.  Kolya was and remains a great inspiration to me.  Condolences to his family.
John Samples Student August 26, 2014
Through his teaching, but more importantly through his warmth and compassion, Dr. Chernov touched the lives of many of his students in a way that speaks to an inimitable goodness of character; he will live on in the hearts of his family, friends and pupils, and his noble legacy will be the example he set for us all, as a professor, mathematician, and as a person.  He will always be missed.
Rami AlAhmad Assistant professor/ Jordan August 20, 2014
I am deeply sad to hear that Dr. chernov passed away.  It is a big lose for all of us.
Dr. Chernov was one of the best instructor that I have ever had. He will be always in our minds and  in our hearts.
Peter Balint Budapest University of Technology August 20, 2014

Ever since I know him, Kolya's influence has been essential for me. I learned a lot from him and
he helped me in many different ways. I am deeply shocked by the sad news that he passed away. I
will always remember his attitude towards work and life, and his wise and kind personality
remains with me in the middle of my heart.

Nandor Simanyi We do not forget you, Kolya August 19, 2014
Dear Kolya, Thank you so much for the lot of love, friendship, compassion, help, and wisdom you always gave us! Especially thanks a lot for the mirriad of brilliant mathematical ideas that you were so generous to disperse between us. It is still pretty hard to comprehend that you will not be with us anymore, at least materially. However, your ideas and the memory of your loving heart stay with us forever. Rest in Peace, Dear Friend!
Ali Alsharadqah Professor Chernov's student August 17, 2014

I will truly miss Professor Chernov. He was not only my best teacher and PhD advisor, but also he was one of my best friends. Few months ago we were preparing to our next joint trip. He was planning to visit me and then we will go together to the beach and the mountains in NC. I still remember his smile and I can’t forget him. Kolya, you will be in our hearts forever… 

Ian Melbourne Professor of U. Warwick August 14, 2014

Viviane Baladi Professor at CNRS, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris August 14, 2014

van den Bedem, Henry Chernov's student, Prof at Stanford August 14, 2014
I last interacted with Kolya around the
holiday season last year, and things appeared to be looking up. I was
unaware his cancer had returned, and am sorry to hear he passed away. I
have many, many fond (and funny!) memories of my time as a graduate
student with him. I think it was a learning experience for both of us!
Hui Ma Chernov's student August 14, 2014

Qizhuo Huang Student of Chernov August 14, 2014
This is really hard for me to digest and I don't how I can express my deepest sadness in words at this moment. Needless to say, I just lost such a great mentor who made a tremendous impact on me. No! he is still living -- living in my mind forever.
Renato Feres Professor at Washington University St. Louis August 14, 2014
