This is the first volume of the series entitled "Physics at the Turn of the Millennium." This book contains three chapters. The first chapter deals with the fundamentals of a new interdisciplinary scientific direction, physics of open systems, whose origin was associated with the work of outstanding... (More)

The book offers a self-contained description of the theory of finite and continuous groups, and their representations, applied to problems from various areas of quantum mechanics, such as the theory of atoms, quantum chemistry, the theory of solids, and relativistic quantum mechanics.

The present book contains one hundred and sixty problems, most of them simple, in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. Some of these problems were used previously by the authors in their courses at the Moscow Institute of Engineering and Physics. However, the majority were drawn up or selected in the course...

The book covers a wide range of topics, starting from the basic notions of particle physics and fields physics and gradually evolving to study macrophysics. Except of traditional issues the author considers subjects such as physical hydrodynamics, plasma physics, and astrophysics.

The proposed Lectures supplement the course by Landau and Lifshitz with some new sections, without which it is impossible to solve the problems in modern theoretical physics.

This book consists of Lectures which the author has been reading in Moscow Institute of Physical Technology since 2003. The... (More)

From Brian Greene, one of the world's leading physicists, comes a grand tour of the universe that makes us look at reality in a completely different way.

Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a... (More)

The book focuses on the main characteristics of coupled electromagnetoelastic waves, surface Rayleigh waves in piezoelectric and magnetoelastic media, Lamb waves and shear waves in piezoelectrics. The authors discuss the criteria of dielectric and piezoelectric breakdown. All topics of the book receive... (More)

Will our Universe expand forever, or there is a Big Crunch coming up? How can the rate of the Universe expansion be measured in a laboratory? How does the boundary of space look?

How can Mach's principle be verified experimentally? How many stars are needed in order for the law of inertia to hold?... (More)

The almanac is helpful for those who study interdisciplinary macroproblems as well as for specialists working within specific trends, and also for those who to a greater or lesser extent are interested in the evolutionary problems of astrophysics, geology, biology, history, anthropology, linguistics;...

A more and more important role is played by new directions in historical research that study long-term dynamic processes and quantitative changes. This kind of history can hardly develop without the application of mathematical methods. The history is studied more and more as a system of various processes,... (More)
