The book is intended for college undergraduates majoring in Physics. It contains about 2000 problem covering the major areas of Physical science: mechanics, thermodynamics, molecular physics, electrodynamics, oscillations and waves, optics, atomic and nuclear physics. Each section is preceded by a short summary of appropriate formulas whose total number exceeds 300. The answers to all of the problems are given at the end of volume. Most difficult problems are provided with explanations....

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...

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...

When solving a problem, first of all establish the physical laws which it is based on. Then use the formulas expressing these laws to solve the problem in symbols, and finally substitute the numerical data in one system of units. This collection of problems is based on the International System of Units preferred today in all the fields of' science, engineering and economy. Other units can be converted to 51 units with the aid of the relevant tables given in this book. Each section is preceded...

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...

Volume 1 of this course of theoretical physics deals with the fundamental laws of physics. The text lucidly presents for students and workers in theoretical physics the fundamental principles underlying the findings of experimental physics. It gives a unified presentation of classical mechanics, electrodynamics, and quantum mechanics and provides an excellent foundation for the study of more advanced topics in atomic, molecular, and solid-state physics. Fundamental laws can be read by students...

This textbook on mathematical analysis is based on many years’ experience of lecturing at a higher technical college. Its aim is to train the students in active approach to mathematical exercises, as is done at a seminar. Much attention is given to problems improving the theoretical background. Therefore standard computational exercises are supplemented by examples and problems explaining the  theory, promoting its deeper understanding and stimulating precise  mathematical thinking. Some...

The book is devoted to one of the most interesting branches of number theory, the solution of equations in integers. The solution in integers of algebraic equations in more than one unknown with integral coefficients is a most difficult problem in the theory of numbers. The theoretical importance of equations with integral coefficients is quite great as they are closely connected with many problems of number theory. Moreover, these equations are sometimes encountered in physics and so they are...

In this booklet the author did not pursue the aim of presenting the basic properties of inequalities and made an attempt only to familiarize students of senior classes with some particularly remarkable inequalities playing an important role in various sections of higher mathematics and with their use for finding the greatest and the least values of quantities and for calculating some limits. The book contains 63 problems, 35 of which are provided with detailed solutions, composing thus its main...

The booklet deals with a fundamental method of analytical geometry and its ability to describe geometrical figures through equations. This method permits geometrical study and solution of geometrical problems by algebraic means, thus making a visual representation of complex spatial configurations superfluous. Considerable attention has been devoted to the question of representing geometrical figures through equations, which is often difficult for those who being to study the method of...

The book acquaints the reader with complex numbers and functions of a complex argument (including Zhukovskyâs function as applied to the construction of a wing section). The material is presented in a geometric form. Complex numbers are considered as directed line segments and functions as mappings. To prepare the reader to such an understanding of complex numbers, we begin with a geometric interpretation of real numbers and operations on them. The book is based on a lecture delivered by the...

As the name suggests the book is about integral equations and methods of solving them under different conditions. The book has three chapters. Chapter 1 covers  Volterra Integral Equations  in details. Chapter 2 covers  Fredholm integral equations . Finally in Chapter 3, Approximate Methods for solving integral equations are discussed. There are plenty of solved examples in the text to illustrate the methods, along with problems to solve. This will be a useful resource book for those...

Mir Publishers have prepared an English translation of the latest, 21st Russian edition of the textbook, which has been divided into two volumes to facilitate work with the book. Many generations of students used N. Glinka’s General Chemistry in studying the subject; secondary school graduates used it in preparing...

This book originated from our experience in teaching electrodynamics as part of a series of lectures in theoretical physics. The lectures were read at the Leningrad State University for all students of the physics faculty, both future theoreticians and experimenters. The subject matter follows from what the students learned about electricity and magnetism in the general physics course, On the other hand, an electrodynamics course must serve as the basis for many special disciplines, such as...

The pupils often fail to understand why truths should be proved that seem quite evident without proof, the proofs often appearing to be excessively complicated and cumbersome. It sometimes happens, too, that a seemingly clear and convincing proof turns out, upon closer scrutiny, to be incorrect. This booklet was written with the aim of helping pupils clear up the following points: 1. What is proof? 2. What purpose does a proof serve? 3. What form should a proof take? 4. What may be accepted...

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....

The problems of this collection are divided in three paragraphs. The first paragraph contains introductory excercizes on the reduction of partial differential equations to canonical form.

In this second book the main role is played by measure theory and the Lebesgue integral. These con- cepts, in particular the concept of measure, are discussed with a sufficient degree of generality; however, for greater clarity we start with the concept of a Lebesgue measure for plane sets.

Sometimes they discuss this and similar questions at mathematics clubs at schools.
