Fundamental Laws of Mechanics  was first published in English by Mir in 1980. Currently there is 2002 reprint still in stock from CBS Publishers. The objective of this book is to draw the readers’ attention to the  basic  laws of mechanics, that is, to the laws of motion and to laws of conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum, as well as to show  how  these laws are to be applied in solving various scientific problems. At the same time author has excluded all things of minor...

This book is specifically a “textbook” for learning the physical content of quantum mechanics. There is a pleasing progression from the gross quantum effects (blackbody radiation, photoelectric effect, specific heats) to typical quantum mechanical behavior (spreading of wave packets, barrier penetration, stationary states, spin and angular momentum multiplets) to the more refined quantum phenomenology (fine structure, effect of the nucleus on atomic structure, quantum fluctuations of the...

The main idea The main idea behind this book is to amalgamate the description of the basic concepts of the theory and the practical methods of solving problems in one book. Therefore, each chapter contains first a description of the theory of the subject being considered (illustrated by concrete examples) and then a set of selected problems with solutions. The problems are closely related to the text and often complement it. Hence they should be analYfed together with the text. In author’s...

Higher algebra—the subject of this text—is a far-reaching and natural generalization of the basic school course of elementary algebra. Central to elementary algebra is without doubt the problem of solving equations. The study of equations begins with the very simple case of one equation of the first degree in one unknown. From there on, the development proceeds in two directions: to systems of two and three equations of the first degree in two and, respectively, three unknowns, and to a...

This book contains the conditions of problems, the answers and hints  to them and the solutions of the problems. The conditions of the most difficult problems are marked by stars. We recommend the reader to start with trying to solve without assistance the problem he is interested in. In case this attempt fails he can read the hint or the answer to the problem, which may facilitate the solution, Finally, if this does not help, the solution of the problem given in the book should be studied....

Electricity and Magnetism by A. N. Matveev . This course reflects the present level of advancement in science and takes into account the changes in the general physics curriculum. This course mainly aims at the description of the experimental substantiation of the theory of electromagnetism and the formulation of the theory in the local form, i.e. in the form of relations between physical quantities at the same point in space and time. In most cases, these relations are expressed in the form of...

The present book consists of an introduction and six chapters. The introduction discusses basic notions and definitions of the traditional course of mathematical physics and also mathematical models of some phenomena in physics and engineering. Chapters 1 and 2 are devoted to elliptic partial differential equations. Here much emphasis is placed on the Cauchy- Riemann system of partial differential equations, that is on fundamentals of the theory of analytic functions, which facilitates the...

The subject matter of Physical Bodies has undergone the least change. It is largely the first half of the previous edition of Physics for Everyone. Since the first book of the new edition contains phenomena that do not require a knowledge of the structure of matter, it was natural to call it Physical Bodies. Of course, another possibility was to use, as is usually done, the title Mechanics (i.e. the science of motion). But the theory of heat, which is covered in the second book, Molecules, also...

In three chapters, the authors consider how space and time were perceived from ancient times to the present (as marked by the publication of Einsteinâs theory of relativity) how they are now perceived, and finally how this field of mathematics and physics might develop in the future. Although there are many presentations of our current understanding of this subject on the market, the topics covered in the second chapter of...

This handbook is a continuation of the Handbook of Elementary Mathematics by the same author and includes the material usually studied in a mathematics course in higher educational institutions. The designation of this handbook is twofold. Firstly it is reference work in which the reader can find definitions (what is a vector product) and factual information, such as how to find the surface of a solid of revolution or how to expand the function in a trigonometric series, and so on. Definitions,...

The purpose of this book is to acquaint the reader with the principal phenomena and most important laws of physics. The authors have tried to make the book as compact as possible, including only what is essential and omitting what is of secondary significance. For this reason the discussion nowhere aims at anything approaching completeness.
