About the book:

The authors of this collection are leading members of the staff at the Institute of Physics Problems of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Moscow. Three of them are Members of the Academy of Sciences.

The Institute was founded fifty years ago by the great contemporary physicist P. L. Kapitza. Academician L. D. Landau another giant of our time, also worked at the institute. The institute is world famous for research in low temperature physics.

This is a collection of six articles on the basic achievements of the Institute during the last few years. They include the discoveries of crystallization waves in helium and quantum magnetic breakdown. The collection is intended for scientists working in solid state physics and students interested in the latest advances of quantum physics of the condensed state.

The book was translated from the Russian by by Valerii Ilyushchenko and was first published by Mir Publishers in 1985.
