With the support of a distinguished Advisory Editorial Board, areas of current interest that have reached a level of maturity to be reviewed, are selected for the series and each contributed volume has, accordingly, two editors. Monographs, written by either Western or Soviet authors, are also included. The complete series will provide the most comprehensive coverage available of condensed matter science.
The publishing house "Nauka", publishes the volumes in the Russian language. This way the broadest possible readership is ensured.
