Западноевропейская классика: от Шекспира до Гете Western European Classics: From Shakespeare to Goethe

Books in the ‘Rereading the Classics’ series give a modern analysis of the works that form part of school literature curricula. This is the first attempt to provide a detailed insight into the spiritual, moral and religious aspects of the art of 19th and 20th century Russian writers. The series is offered as the basis of modern knowledge about Russian literature, which is necessary for high school students to pass school-leaving examinations and to gain admission to any institution of higher learning.

The textbook covers a number of major names and works of foreign literature from the school curriculum. With all the vastness of the period, the five offered essays represent a change in the main genres and styles from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. The book traces the evolution of literature, starting with genres that mark the collapse of the humanist utopia, the tragedies of Shakespeare and the novel of Cervantes. It continues with the satirical comedy of Moliere and the enlightenment novel by Defoe and Swift. Finally, it discusses Goethe's work and his great book Faust, which assesses the renewed character of culture through one of the key images of modern times.

For school, lyceums and gymnasium teachers, high school and college students, university entrants, philology specialists and a wide range of readers.

И.С. Тургенев: логика творчества и менталитет героя Turgenev: The Logic of His Works and the Mentality of the Character

This lecture course was created on the basis of a special course, which for several years was read by the doctor of philology, honored professor, laureate of the Goncharov Literary Prize B.A. Nedzvetsky for students and Russian philology interns of the Philological Faculty of Moscow State University. The course consists of two sections: 'Logic of creativity' and ‘Mentality of the Character'.

The first section describes common literature and personal factors that helped Turgenev — the poet, playwright, essayist and author of original novels — become one of the classics of the Russian and world novel.

The second section contains a thorough analysis of the mental values that distinguish the central Turgenev characters. Those values highlight Turgenev’s characters against the characters of other Russian writers of the 19th century and the dramatic nature of their fates.

For undergraduates, post-graduate students and teachers of philological faculties, as well as all admirers of Turgenev.

Инвариантные выводы в статистике Invariant Conclusions in Statistics

The book is based on a course of lectures delivered by the author (professor of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Modeling of the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas) at the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Moscow State University, at universities and research centers in Warsaw, Berlin, Liege, Brussels, and the US. The book deals with statistical problems that are invariant under a suitable group of transformations of observed and estimated quantities, for example, the choice of the coordinate system in which these quantities are measured. For such problems, the choice of the optimal solution in the class of invariant statistical solutions is simplified. For frequently used invariant statistical models, such solutions are explicitly defined. The book gives many examples as well as some commentary on the problem of reconstructing a multidimensional function from observations.

For students and postgraduate students of universities and institutes, as well as for reference and for individuals who study or use applied mathematics in their studies.
