After graduating in 1940, Dnipropetrovsk industrial college he became a student of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the Dnipropetrovsk State University in the specialty "Mathematics". The training was carried out through evacuation to the city of Magnitogorsk (1941-1945), where MaiorPylypovych worked as a locksmith, a thread-grinder of the new-store shop of the Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Works, and from 1943 he was the driller of the blast furnace. Returning to his hometown, he continued his studies at universities, in 1950 he received a diploma with honors.

In the same year he entered the post-graduate course at the department of mathematical analysis of the DDU, which he graduated in advance in 1952, defending his Ph.D. thesis "Some questions of the theory of summation of multiple rows".

Immediately after defending a talented scientist was elected the head of the Department of Higher Mathematics of the Dnipropetrovsk Agricultural Institute (now DSAEU). In this position, M. Tiaman has consistently worked for over 60 years. From 1995 to 2000, he was also chairman of the Department of Economic Cybernetics.

Doctor's dissertation "Investigation of properties of functions with given best approximations" was defended in 1973 at the Leningrad State University.

Maor Pilipovich's research has been published in more than 130 papers and three monographs, among which the work "Approximation of the Proof of Periodic Functions" (2009) was awarded the first prize in the competition of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

Also published 4 scientific and methodical guidelines, one of them, "Mathematical notions for engineers", took first place in the Dnipropetrovsk regional competition in 2010 for the best educational and educational literature.

During the years of professor M.Timan's management, 3 doctoral and 18 candidate's theses were defended by postgraduate students, lecturers and faculty members of the department, 16 of them M.Timan was a scientific supervisor.
