"Grigorchuk's work not only gave solutions to old standing problems but also discovered new exciting classes of groups. They found applications in the theory of fractals, holomorphic dynamics, spectral theory of groups and graphs, and theory of finite automata. ... The work of Grigorchuk has influenced several generations of researchers in group theory. It would be impossible to imagine the modern group theory without Grigorchuk's work."
