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....

This compact volume equips the reader with all the facts and principles essential to a fundamental understanding of the theory of probability. It is an introduction, no more: throughout the book the authors discuss the theory of probability for situations having only a finite number of possibilities, and the mathematics employed is held to the elementary level. But within its purposeiy restricted range it is extremely thorough, well organized, and absolutely authoritative. It is the only...

Khinchin was a teacher-genius before his time and a mathematician of outstanding calibre. The main contents of this book are four articles written by A. Ya. Khinchin for Russian mathematics teachers. 101 pages are devoted to four articles written between 1938 and 1949 by Khinchin (who died in 1959), the remainder of the book to biographical notes and an appendix on mathematics teaching in the Soviet school. One of the best sections is the one on the concept of limit. The author traces the...

This book has a very simple structure. It begins with a brief section called “Preliminaries” presenting the modicum of back­ ground information needed to solve the 89 problems stated in the next section, called “Sample Problems.” These problems are, for the most part, equipped with hints or answers or both. But thenub of thebook is the section called “Detailed Solutions,” where you will find all 89 sample problems worked out in full detail. In our opinion, just studying these...

The present monograph is devoted to the principal problems of quantum mechanics and is based on the conception first stated in my course on ‘Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics’. The scope and purpose of the above course did not allow some principal questions to be brought out as fully as they deserved, and besides, some important points were only very recently developed to a sufficient extent. This refers especially to the analysis of the action of the measuring instrument, whose dual role...

THIS  book is a translation of the second Polish edition, published in 1960, in which various improvements were made. The problems set at the contests require only a knowledge of school mathematics (i.e. elementary algebra, geometry and trigonometry) but are on the whole more difficult than the usual school exercises. Their degree of difficulty, however, is not uniform, for it is considered desirable that not only the most gifted pupils but also those of average ability should —with a...

THE PRESENT book is based on the practical work with equations of mathematical physics done in the Physics Faculty and the external section of Moscow State University. The problems set forth were used in the course "Equations of Mathematical Physics" by A. N. Tikhonov and A. A. Samarskii, and in "A Collection of Problems on Mathematical Physics" by B. M. Budak.  However, in compiling the present work the range of problems examined has been considerably enlarged and the...

The book is a translation of two papers written by the Russian mathematician, A. I. Khinchin, for the expository journal Uspekhi . These papers present the mathematical foundations of information theory. While completely rigorous, the flavour of the engineering applications which led to the theory runs throughout and very much helps the intuition. Khinchin has here reformulated basic concepts and presents for the first time rigorous proofs of certain fundamental theorems in the subject. The...

From the wide variety of material collected by various authors under the name of mathematical games and pastimes, there can be extracted several groups of “classical pastimes”, which drew the attention of mathe­ maticians for a long time; (1) Pastimes, connected with the search for original solutions of problems, which permit a practically un­ limited number of solutions (see e. g. “Magic squares” — ch. 16, “The problem of the chess knight” — ch. 19, etc.). Here, the interest...

In the area of quantum statistics, I show that a rigorous and systematic mathematical basis of the computational formulas of statistical physics does not require a special unwieldy analytical apparatus (the method of Darwin-Fowler), but may be obtained from an elementary application of the well-developed limit theorems of the theory of probability. Apart from its purely scientific value, which is evident and requires no comment, the possibility of such an appli­ cation is particularly...

This little book is devoted to three theorems in arithmetic, which, in spite of their apparent simplicity, have been the objects of the efforts of many important mathematical scholars. The proofs which are presented here make use of completely elementary means, (although they are not very simple). The book can be understood by beginning college students, and is intended for wide circles of lovers of mathematics.

The present book considers as its main task to make the reader familiar with the mathematical treatment of statistical mechanics on the basis of modem concepts of the theory of probability and a maximum utilization of its analytic apparatus. The book is written, above all, for the mathematician, and its purpose is to introduce him to the problems of statistical mechanics in an atmosphere of logical precision, outside of which he cannot assimilate and work, and which, unfortunately, is lacking...

This booklet presents examples of faulty geometric proofs, some of which illustrate mistakes in reasoning that a student might make, while others are classic sophisms,  Chapters 1 and 3 present these faulty proofs, and then Chapters 2 and 4 give comprehensive analyses of the mistakes. A background of high school geometry is presupposed, with trigonometry needed for some details.
