**Translated from Russian through Vitaly Kisin**

This little e-book concentrates at the foundations of contemporary physics (its "ABC's") and its such a lot basic constants: c the rate of sunshine and ħ— the quantum of motion.

to begin with, the ebook is addressed to expert physicists, yet in an effort to in achieving maximal focus and readability it makes use of the best (high institution) arithmetic. for that reason many pages of the publication can be necessary to varsity scholars and will attract a extra common viewers.

Readership: students and readers within the actual sciences.

G. all electrons or all photons) are exactly identical. Not more than one fermion (electron) can occupy a given state; by contrast, there can be any number of bosons (photons) occupying the same state. g. [6]), one needs to remember that the state of the electron in an atom is described by four quantum numbers: 1) prinipal n, 2) orbital l, 3) its projection ml , 4) spin projection ms . The principal quantum number n can assume integer values 1, 2, 3,. . The orbital number l can take integer values from 0 to n − 1.

3) where γ = 1/ 1 − v 2 /c2 . 4) It is easy to see that as v/c → 0, the Lorentz transformation changes into the Galilean transformation for which t′ = t. Lorentz transformations implied that not only the spatial coordinates change when the body moves but that the time coordinate changes too.
