I've searched for the doctoral thesis of Alexandr V Kostochka in internet but couldn't find it. Can somebody help me?

I have searched in his publications list (which contains only one article published before 1980) and the library website of the University of Illinois. I have also asked Kostochka himself and another author who cited him for a copy of Kostochka's thesis. I have got no replies (which is understandable because they are busy). The thesis is in Russian; I would like to get a copy of the thesis in some language.

Kostochka, Alexandr V. "Upper bounds of chromatic functions of graphs" (in Russian). Doct. Thesis. Novosibirsk, 1978.

  • $\begingroup$ Searching at ideals.illinois.edu/search?rpp=10&etal=0&scope=/… did not help either. $\endgroup$ Jun 19 '21 at 8:52
  • $\begingroup$ Not sure if this is helpful but this paper of Kostochka might cover some material of his thesis mathnet.ru/php/… $\endgroup$ Jun 19 '21 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ The names of the paper and of the thesis are very close, and the paper is from 1977 (unfortunately, the paper seems to be only in Russian and without proofs) $\endgroup$ Jun 19 '21 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ @SashaKozachinskiy Thank you for your effort. A paper with very similar name is published in Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Series B in 1977 (link to paper). But, the content looks different to me. $\endgroup$ Jun 20 '21 at 4:38
