  • Essential Advanced Physics is a series comprising four parts: Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics. Each part consists of two volumes, Lecture notes and Problems with solutions, further supplemented by an additional collection of test problems and solutions available to qualifying university instructors. This volume, Classical Mechanics: Problems with solutions contains detailed model solutions to the exercise problems formulated in the companion Lecture notes volume. In many cases, the solutions include result discussions that enhance the lecture material. For the reader's convenience, the problem assignments are reproduced in this volume.

  • Konstantin K. Likharev received his PhD from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, USSR in 1969, and a habilitation degree of Doctor of Sciences from USSR's High Attestation Committee in 1979. From 1969 to 1990 Dr. Likharev was a Staff Scientist of Moscow State University. In 1991 he assumed a Professorship at Stony Brook University (Distinguished Professor since 2002, John S. Toll Professor since 2017). During his research career, Dr Likharev worked in the fields of nonlinear classical and dissipative quantum dynamics, and solid-state physics and electronics, notably including superconductor electronics and nanoelectronics - most recently, with applications to neuromorphic networks. Dr Likharev has authored more than 250 original publications, over 80 review papers and book chapters, 2 monographs and several patents. Dr. Likharev is a Fellow of the APS and IEEE.
