However, it is well to bear in mind that neither handbook, nor textbook alone suffices to give the reader a knowledge of the subject: he must use pencil and paper and work through the examples and problems for himself.

This is how the preface of the Mathematical Handbook – Elementary Mathematics by M. Vygodsky ends. The book has about 420 pages and was first published in 1979 by Mir Publishers. The book I have is the fourth reprint in 1984 and was translated from Russian by George Yankovsky. This book has been reprinted by Visalandhra (last reprint 2005) and CBS (2004) both. In fact you can still purchase the Elementary Mathematics handbook from Flipkart for just Rs. 80.

The book has following sections

Tables,Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry (Plane and Solid), Trigonometry, Functions and Graphs

The current scan is from VisalAndhra Publishing House 2005 print. The scan quality is not very good.

**Handbook and Textbook: **

*An attempt has been made to combine the merits of both books in one text.*

If this Handbook caught your attention then the Mathematical Handbook – Higher Mathematics by Vygodsky must seen. The book has about 820 pages, almost double the size of the one on Elementary Mathematics.

The English translation was first published by Mir in 1975. The one I have is Fourth Reprint in 1984, and translation is by George Yankovsky.

This book is with me since I needed to have a Reference book for Mathematics. The Preface says:

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, theorems, rules and formulas (accompanied by examples and practical hints) are readily found by reference to the comprehensive index or table of contents.Secondly, the handbook is intended for systematic reading. It does not take the place of a textbook and so full proofs are only given in exceptional cases. However, it can well serve as a material for the first acquaintance with the subject.

This book is listed in Flipkart for Rs. 388/-, but is currently unavailable. I do not know if there are any translations of these books in Indian languages.

The Higher Mathematics handbook has a photo with autograph, no details about the photograph are given.

I think the photo is of the author M. Vygodsky, ~~but I am not sure~~. ~~If anyone knows whose photo it is, please let me know.~~ *[P.S. Sanjay has told [see comment] that this photo is indeed of M. Vygodsky].* The paper of the book was considerably yellowed, so this photo of that page, is no that good. But I have tried my best, to present it.

dear damitr,

the photograph surely is of M. Ya. Vygodsky. in the cyrillic alphabet, it is written as М.Я. Выгодский . he has simply signed off his name in italics (which are written slightly differently).

You have posted a wide collection of MIR publications which is admirable since ages. I have some e-books (Physics and Mathematics) which are in russian, and would like to get this in English. I have searched a lot but in vain.

Can you help in getting these books in english. If it is possible then i shall post the links of these books, so that a large collection of the MIR publications can be built up on the net and everyone can be benefited out of this rare collection of books.

1. Scanning to JPEG or JPEG2000 or TIFF… which format should I select?

2. When scanning the book left side page is fine but on the right side, page noticed some content is getting very light (near spine side). It is happening in every scan. I am pressing the book on the scanner, still, the result is the same.

3. Selecting the page is A4 or letter?

Sorry for the trouble, scanning book the first time

TIFF should be okay, initial size is large though. #2 if that is happening, then you can scan just one page at a time. instead of a 2-in-1 scan. #3 Page size should be selected by you, A4/letter would be too large for most books, choose a custom area from the preview of the scan.

Physics for the Technician

by L. S. Zhdanov

Translated from the Russian

by Mark Samokhvalov, Cand. Sc.

Mir Publisher~

Moscow

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 programme

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, the teacher can always select a book that is best suited for his or her purposes. One book

that we find especially useful is Theoretical Mechanics by

E. M. Nikitin (Mir Publishers, Moscow, 1980).

The physics course that follows starts with a brief introduction

about physical quantities and their measurement,

the International System of Units, and the approximations

that any scientist makes when measuring or calculating a

quantity. It then goes on to the subject of heat and molecular

physics. The other parts deal with electricity and

magnetism, oscillations and waves, optics and special relativity,

and nuclear physics and, finally, there is a brief

survey of astronomical facts. The International System of

Units is used throughout the book. However, since other

systems of units are used in physics, the author has found it

expedient to provide basic information about these, especially

in electricity (Sections 16-9 and 16-10). To this end the book includes an appendix whose first section is devoted to the base and derived units of the SI system.

The author, Leonid Zhdanov, wrote all the parts of the

book except Part 6, which was written by Evghenii Traut.

The author’s son. Grigorii Zhdanov, participated in the preparation

of the book for press.
