Problems of friction theoretical analysis and its practical applications are considered. It is mentioned that lack of theoretical basics has nor damped the progress of tribology in its practical aspects. The engineering tribology has achieved remarkable results in saving energy, materials, and labor equal to some percent of the GNP in developed countries. “Green” tribology is developing rapidly affecting ecology, bioengineering, and medicine. Conclusions are made that tribology has done great in joining the mechanics, surface physics, and chemistry. Analytical tools and computational resources have grown dramatically, so even the general theory of friction is not completed, its progress is making us optimists. The global information exchange and cooperation is increasing rapidly with world congresses getting together thousands of experts and plenty of journals and books in the field.
