This issue of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems is Anatole Katok at UC Berkeley dedicated to Anatole Katok and was conceived on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Anatole Katok was born in Washington, D.C. in 1944. In 1959 he placed second in the Moscow Mathematical Olympiad, and the year after entered Moscow State University, earning his mathematics doctorate in 1968 from Y. Sinai. After working in the department of mathematical methods at the Central Economics and Mathematics Institute for 10 years he emigrated with his family, moving via Vienna, Rome and Paris to the University ofMaryland. The position in the US allowed him to travel, attend and organize conferences, collaborate with other mathematicians and supervise students.
    From this time on, he organized more conferences, special years and other events than anybody else in the dynamics community. During his five years at Maryland Katok was instrumental in the development of their dynamical systems school, and after moving to first Caltech and then Penn State he founded a strong group in dynamical systems at each of these institutions. The schools at Maryland and Penn State have become leading world centers. He has always been active in mentoring younger generations. During his student years he devoted much energy to mathematics olympiads and circles, at Penn State he has been the driving force behind the Mathematics Advanced Study Semesters program for especially strong mathematics undergraduates, and he has supervised more than two dozen doctoral students.
