Mir also published a number of Problem Books in Physics and Mathematics. In this post we will looking at problem books in Physics. The most famous of these in India is the one by Irodov. Problems in General Physics is an indepensible book for those who are trying to get through to touch exams. So popular is the book that many Solutions to the book have been publised, which discuss the problems when they are solved.

The typical format the books have two sections:

1. Questions and problems

2. Solutions to Problems

Sometimes the solutions are discussed, as how to arrive at them and what is the significance, but for simpler problems [simple according to the authors] only the numerical values are given. Here is a list of the problem books that I know of [was helped by a friend in compiling this list]

The purpose of putting the contents is to let people know what is inside the book,

withoutactually downloading it. There are still many people who have low bandwidth and pay for data usage per MB, and as for people looking for specific topics, the contents do help, when searching from search engines.LikeLike

At the outset, Hats off to the great initiative by Damitr !!

I had in my possession many of these MIR Maths/ Physics/ Popular science books as a young kid…It brings back the great memories of my childhood days. Unfortunately, most of those books were given away by me to my juniors and I am now left with none.

Now, I am desperately looking for many of them for my daughter..But, only few have been republished by CBS/ others.

Is there any link to download Pinsky & Zubov/ Shalnov? I would appreciate if any body can provide a link or send me form where I can buy old copies.

Wolkenstein

Bukovtsev et al.

Pinksy

Sena

Grechko

Meshchersky

Zubov, Shalnov

Gurskii.

Vladimirov

Perelomova,

among others. So keep watching. I also hope to make a comprehensive list of Problem Book in Mathematics soon.
