Translated from Russian by Vitaly KisinThis little book concentrates on the foundations of modern physics (its 'ABC's') and its most fundamental constants: c - the velocity of light and - the quantum of action.First of all, the book is addressed to professional physicists, but in order to achieve maximal concentration and clarity it uses the simplest (high school) mathematics. As a result many pages of the book will be useful to college students and may appeal to a more general audience.
The Fundamentals; Units; A Minimum of Mathematics; Translational Motion; Rotation and Quantization; Particles as Corpuscles And Waves; More About Units; The Hydrogen Atom; Periodic Table of Chemical Elements; Substance; Quantum Electrodynamics - QED; Transition to Classical Theory; Gravitation; Other Galaxies; Big Bang; Quantum Gravidynamics - QGD; Intranuclear Forces; Particles in Cosmic Rays; Particles in Accelerators; Three Discrete Symmetries; Half a Century Later; On Quantum Chromodynamics; On The Electroweak Theory; Supersymmetry; Grand Unification; In the Vicinity of the Planck Mass; Concluding Remarks.
