Felix Berezin was once a good Soviet mathematician who within the Nineteen Sixties and 70s used to be the driver in the back of the emergence of the department of arithmetic referred to now as supermathematics. The quintessential over the anticommuting Grassmann variables that he brought within the Sixties laid the root for the trail crucial formula of quantum box concept with fermions, the center of contemporary supersymmetric box theories and superstrings. The Berezin critical is termed for him, as is the heavily similar development of the Berezinian, that may be considered as the superanalog of the determinant. This publication encompasses a masterfully written memoir via Berezin's widow, Elena Karpel, who narrates a impressive account of Berezin's existence and his fight for survival lower than the totalitarian Soviet regime. Supplemented with reminiscences by way of his shut pals and associates, Berezin's accomplishments in arithmetic, his novel rules and leap forward works, are reviewed in articles written by way of Andrei Losev and Robert Minlos.
