Principles of Electrodynamics – A. N. Matveyev
In this post, we will look at the book Principles of Electrodynamics by A. N. Matveyev (Matveev). We have seen other books by Matveev in the past, Mechanics and Theory of Relativity, Optics, Molecular Physics, and Electricity and Magnetism.
About the book
In this book, we have a clear, concise introduction, on the intermediate level, of all the tools necessary to handle the most important problems in electrodynamics, with emphasis on the experimental basis of significant phenomena. The book is divided into three parts: Phenomenological Electrodynamics, Electron Theory, and the Theory of Relativity. The first two parts present Maxwell’s Equations and their consequences, first introducing phenomenological parameters to describe the behavior of material media and then deriving them from a more fundamental microscopic view. Einstein, through his Theory of Relativity, made possible a beautiful unification of electric and magnetic phenomena. Therefore, a discussion of the historical background which led to Einstein’s theory, its fundamental concepts, and their farreaching consequences may be found in the last part of this text. Principles of Electrodynamics, then, fills the need for a somewhat more advanced text on electricity and magnetism which does not assume great mathematical sophistication, but which does emphasize the basic physics.
The book was translated from the Russian by Leon F. Landovitz and was publised by Reinhold in 1966. AFAIK there is no translation of the book in Mir.

Integral Equations In Elasticity – Parton, Perlin
In this post, we will look at the book Integral Equations In Elasticity by V. Z. Parton, P. I. Perlin.
About the book
This book presents the fundamentals of the theory of regular and singular integral equations in the case of one and two variables. The general principles of the theory of approximate methods are considered as well as their application for the efficient solution of both regular and singular integral equations. The necessary information is given on the threedimensional and twodimensional equations of the theory of elasticity including the formulation of boundary value problems. The book contains the derivation and analysis of various integral equations of the plane problem for both fundamental boundary value problems and mixed problems, and also for bodies with cuts. In the threedimensional case the construction and analysis of integral equations are carried out for the first and second fundamental problems.
Emphasis is placed on efficient methods for solving integral equations for the plane and threedimensional problems of elasticity. Examples are given illustrating the advantages of a particular approach. The book is appended with an extensive list of references giving comprehensive information of the subject of investigation.
The emphasis on numerical methods for the solution of integral equations for elastostatic problems corresponds to the author’s conviction that this approach has considerable promise, particularly with the advent of the nearestgeneration computers.
The scope of the book is limited to elastostatic problems though the extension of the methods described to dynamic problems apparently involves no fundamental difficulties.
The book was translated from the Russian by ???? and was published by Mir in 1982.

Plugging Materials and the Cementing of Wells – Bulatov
In this post, we will see the book Plugging Materials and the Cementing of Wells by A. Bulatov.
About the book:
This textbook, translated from the third Russian edition, is intended for students at technical schools specializing in the drilling of oil and gas wells. The book outlines the techniques of cementing oil and gas wells, based on current scientific developments and experience gained in applying advanced methods by the Soviet oilindustry specialists, and offers a description of cementing outfit, plugging cements, and chemicals used for their
treatment. It also surveys the properties of plugging mixtures (slurries) and cement stone under a variety of geological and technical conditions.One of the merits of the text is that it describes the composition of plugging cements and techniques employed in their preparation, which is of great importance in training technical personnel at oil fields.
The book will be of particular value in countries where oil is being produced with the participation of the Soviet specialists and with use of the Sovietmade equipment.
The book was translated from the Russian by S. Kittell and was published by Mir in 1985 (Second Edition).
