Московский государственный университет им. М.В.Ломоносова
This Summer Student Program in JINR was a whole little life in touch with real vivid science itself among inspiring responsive people. It is the best way to be drawn into relevant researches not only during this program -- the obtained skills and experience would be definitely useful in future! I would like express special thanks to my supervisor who helped me to uncover vast and unusual world of theoretical physics for myself.
