October 16, 2009
A workshop was held to honor Professor Faydor Litvin’s contributions in the fields of mechanism and gear mechanics. Professor Litvin has been one the most recognized researchers and educators in this field and has developed new techniques for the study of gear geometry. He has published several highly cited books and research papers that document his pioneering work. He has also received many awards in recognition of his contributions. Many experts from federal laboratories and industry as well as Professor Litvin’s former students attended the 2009 UIC Workshop on Gear Mechanics held at the University of Illinois at Chicago on October 16, 2009 to express their appreciation and acknowledge his significant contributions. The participants came from different countries including Italy, Japan, Spain, Taiwan, and U.S. Several awards from UIC, University of Bologna (Italy), and NASA Glenn Research Center were presented to Professor Litvin at the workshop.
