The books from MIR publishers just seem so hardcore
I loved a lot of the books, most of the introductory mathematics I learnt is from Russian texts. Any recommendations y'all for cool books around the time or rare texts in general
My college has a nice library and I just want to read everything I can lol
 
Physics news on Phys.org

I can recommend two Mir books
Physical Paradoxes and Sophisms by Lange
The Portrait of a Crack by Finkel

Venetsky’s “Tales Abouts Metals” and “On Rare and Scattered Metals” are fun.

Depending on your level, you might enjoy Zeldovich’s “Higher math for beginners” and “elements of applied mathematics”
