In the nanotechnoscience, on the one part, similar with the classical natural science are created explanatory schemes of the natural phenomena and formulated predictions of the course of the definite natural events on the basis of the mathematics and experimental data, and, on the other part, as in the engineering sciences are constructed not only the projects of the new experimental situations, but also structural schemes of the new nanosystem unknown in the nature and in the technology. Scanning Tunneling Microscope in the nanoexperiment is not only an arrangement of the scientific investigation, but also in the same time a facility to fabricate the electrically conducting bridges between an electrode and the selected nanotubes and computer modeling and design of the different artifacts.
The operation of nanotheory is realized by the iteration method. At first a special engineering problem is formulated. Then it is represented in the form of the structural scheme of the nanosystem which is transformed into the idea about the natural process reflecting its performance. To calculate and mathematically model this process a functional scheme is constructed. Consequently, the engineering problem is reformulated into a scientific one and then into a mathematical problem solved by the deductive method. This path from the bottom to the top represents the analysis of schemes (the bottom up approach). The way in the opposite direction — the synthesis of schemes (the top down approach) — makes it possible to synthesize the ideal model of a new nanosystem from idealized structural elements according to the appropriate rules of deductive transformation, to calculate basic parameters of the nanosystem and simulate its function.

Prof., Dr. Vitaly G. Gorokhov

Senior Scientist, Institute for Technology Assesment and Systems Analysis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Egenstein-Leopldshafen, Germany, Germany

Born in Moscow, Russia, in 1947. He studied electronic engineering and philosophy (Lomonosov University) in Moscow and received his doctoral degrees in 1975 (“Methodology of Systems Engineering”) and in 1986 (“Methodological Analysis of the Development of the Theoretical Knowledge in the Modern Engineering Sciences”) in the Institute for Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). He founded in 1988 Research Group for Philosophy of Technology in this Institute and is currently a leading scientist there. At the same time he is scientific coordinator of the German-Russian Postgraduate College and the International Academy for Sustainable Development and Technologies at the University of Karlsruhe, from 1.08.2006 also as visiting scientist and from 1.08.2008 senier scientist in the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis of the Research Center of Karlsruhe (from 1.10.2009 Karlsruhe Institute of Technologz = KIT) in Germany. He was also in 1993-2000 managing coordinator of the international project for the environmental monitoring of the ecological dangerous objects and in 2001/2002 visiting professor at the economical faculty of the University of Bremen and in 2004/2005 in University Witten/Heideke. He is also from 2005 professor of the Moscow State Lomonosov University. He was published 250 articles and 12 books in Russian, German and English.
