The paper wears a survey complexion. The authors first give the main achievements of M. A. Lavrent’ev in the theory and methods of conformal mappings, and next, present the influence of his ideas upon the development of the theory of conformal mappings in the research centres of the Ukraine. The authors also present the basic achievements of the Ukrainian scientists in practically important applications of the method of conformal mappings. They stress here that many of these achievements were directly inspired by M. A. Lavrent’ev’s results and ideas.
