Margulis DOI: 10.1134/S0032946011040077 The International Dobrushin Prize for 2011 was awarded to Grigorii Aleksandrovich Margulis. Margulis is aﬃliated with the Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems, Moscow, and Yale University, New Haven, USA. The prize was presented on July 25, 2011, at the Interna- tional Mathematical Conference in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Grigorii Margulis’ Lecture Roland L’vovich Dobrushin was my boss for more than twenty years. When I came to IPPI, I was interested in pure mathematics only. Dobrushin pushed me, softly but persistently, in the direction of applications. Somehow I resisted this pressure but nevertheless made some contributions to coding theory and to what is now called theoretical computer science. One of these contributions was explicit constructions of expander graphs, graphs with large girths, and low density codes. Another contribution is about probabilistic connectivity of highly connected graphs.
