1. Prokhorov was Benderskii's supervisor of diploma (undergraduate) work at Moscow State University (1959). (Email communication, April 2004)

2. Blumenfeld (1921-2002) started out in physical chemistry but turned to physical biochemistry later on. See Hargittai, I. Buried Glory: Portraits of Soviet Scientists. (Oxford Univ. Press, 2013) p.239ff; and Kukushkin, A.K., Biophysics 58(1) 2013, 133-6. Neither source names Blumenfeld's adviser.

3. Gulyaev, Y.V. et al. Physics-Uspekhi 52(5), 2009, 499-502.

4. Rytov, S.M. Soviet Physics Uspekhi 22(10), 1979, 826-32. Mandel'shtam studied electromagnetic oscillations and was influenced by Lord Rayleigh, C.F. Braun, and N.D. Papaleksi at Strasbourg, but an actual adviser and date of degree are not clear.
