Introduction to the series
This new international book series entitled Kharkov Series in Physics and Mathematics provides a unique medium for the publication of high quality original monographs, multiauthor volumes and reference texts in priority research areas of physics and mathematics for graduate, postgraduate and research/professional readership. The Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kharkov has had a long and outstanding tradition in research in physics and mathematics, and is particularly associated with the classical studies and publications of L.D.Landau, L.V.Shubnikov, M.Ostrogradskii, A.Lyapunov and V.Steklov and more recently with the achievements of I.M.Lifshitz, A.I.Akhiezer, V.A.Marchenko, A.V.Pogorelov and V.Drinfeld. Continuing this tradition, this book series will publish and highlight research areas including: condensed matter (theory and experiment), superconductivity, low temperature magnetism and interaction of radiation with matter, cryocrystals, point-contact, optical and magnetic resonance spectroscopies, quantum phase transition, geometry and topology, complex analysis, mathematical modeling, statistical methods in mathematical physics.
