About the authors

Alexander Stepanov (Александр Александрович Степанов) studied mathematics at Moscow State University from 1967 to 1972. He has been programming since 1972: first in the Soviet Union and, after emigrating in 1977, in the United States. He has programmed operating systems, programming tools, compilers, and libraries. His work on foundations of programming has been supported by GE, Polytechnic University, Bell Labs, HP, SGI, Adobe, and, since 2009, A9.com, Amazon's search technology subsidiary. In 1995, he received the Dr. Dobb's Journal Excellence in Programming Award for the design of the C++ Standard Template Library.
