A book detailing theory and design of various types of antennas. The book is composed of three parts. The first part deals with general theory of radio wave propagation, radiation and reception. Using classical electrodynamics different antenna types are described with their parameters. Second part describes theory of transmission lines of radio waves. Different configurations of transmission lines and their effects are derived. The third part of the book describes different types of antenna...

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 handbook is a continuation of the Handbook of Elementary Mathematics by the same author and includes material usually studied in mathematics courses of higher educational institutions. The designation of this handbook is two fold. Firstly, it is a 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 6r how to expand a function in a trigonometrie series, and so on.

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...

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...

The present book is the first volume of a three volume general course in physics. From the Preface: I have done everything in my power to acquaint students with the basic ideas and methods of physics and to teach them how to think physically. This is why the book is not encyclopedic in its nature. It is mainly devoted to explaining the meaning of physical laws and showing how to apply them consciously. What I have tried to achieve is a deep knowledge of the fundamental principles of physics...

The present volume of the series in Pure and Applied Mathe­ matics is devoted to two basic operations of mathematical analysis — differentiation and integration. It discusses the complex of problems directly connected with the operations of differentiation and integra­ tion of functions of one or several variables, in the classical sense, and also elementary generalizations of these operations. Further generalizations will be given in subsequent volumes of the series, volumes devoted to the...

This two-volume book was written for students of technical colleges who have had the usual mathematical training. It contains just enough in­ formation to continue with a wide variety of engineering disciplines. It covers analytic geometry and linear algebra, differential and integral cal­ culus for functions of one and more variables, vector analysis, numerical and functional series (including Fourier series), ordinary differential equa­ tions, functions of a complex variable, Laplace and...

In this post, we will see the book  Solving Problems in Geometry by V. Gusev, V. Litvinenko, A. Mordkovich. This book is intended for students at pedagogical (teacher training) institutes majoring in mathematics or in mathematics and physics. It has been written in correspondence with the current syllabus "Solving Problems". When preparing the text, we wanted to represent the main types of problems in geometry found at school. The book contains about 1000 problems that should be...

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,...

This booklet is an answer to a challenge: a few years after the war the inadequacy of mathematical education in our high schools became evident to the staffs of universities and technological insti­ tutes. Some responsible people felt that a closer collaboration between mathematicians and school teachers could no longer be postponed. A few scientists were among those who did their best to stimulate interest in mathematics by means of elementary problems published in an educational journal....

he present book is a freely revised and restyled version of the third edition of the Russian original (Moscow, 1966). As in other volumes of this series, I have not hesitated to introduce a number of pedagogical and mathematical improvements that occurred to me in the course of doing the translation. 1 have also added a brief Bibliography, confined to books in English dealing with approximately the same topics, at about the same level.

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...

This physics course is intended for students of technical junior colleges and gives an adequate coverage of physics at the high-school level. The aim is to provide a survey of those basics that are essential for the specialized courses that a future technician takes at college. The Soviet pro­ gramme in physics for technical colleges does not include mechanics because this section of physics is studied in secondary school. But since there are many courses in me­chanics, brief and extended,...

Where appropriate, answers and solutions to the problems are given in the second part of each volume. During the course of the translation of these volumes, the authors provided a large list of amendments and additions to their Russian text and these have all been...

ABOUT THE BOOK This is a manual for the students of universities and teachers' training colleges. Containing the compulsory course of geometry, its particular impact is on elementary topics. The book is, therefore, aimed at professional training of the school or university teacher-to-be. The first part, analytic geometry, is easy to assimilate, and actually reduced to acquiring skills in applying algebraic methods to elementary geometry. The second part, differential geometry, contains the...
