This paper includes an interview with Yakovlevich Kogan, a professor at the Computer Science Dept. of the University of California, Los Angeles. Prof. Kogan has had a fascinating career in the most formative years of the control field. His pioneering work on simulating complex systems, including the development of the Soviet Union's first analog computers and hybrid computers, was critical to the control work being done then. This paper includes Prof. Kogan's views on the first Soviet analog computer, his life and work in the Soviet Union, his contemporaries, his emigration to the US, and his current undertakings.
