Decay of apolarized muon at rest is investigated, with attention given to the possible formation of a right - polarized neutrino (left-polarized antineutrino)as well as the usual left-polarized neutrino (right-polarized antineutrino) in the decay process, in events involving interaction between charged and neutral leptonic currents.

The integrability of various schemes for averaging the differential equations of translational - rotational motion of a rigid body in the field of attraction of a sphere, stated in Delaunay - Andoyer canonical variables, is investigated. The Gauss and Moiseev averaging schemes give rise to equations integrable in the case of three - dimensional motion of rigid bodies. The Fatou and Delaunay - Hill averaging schemes are integrable solely in the case of translational - rotational motion of bodies in the plane. The operation of inversion of the first integrals is carried out for each averaging scheme to be integrated.

Characteristics of a Pehning discharge struck in strong magnetic fields of intensity H = 5 to 50 kOe , at anode voltages Va = 2 to 4 kV, are presented for various cell geometric dimensions. Experimental results for a specified configuration of discharge tubes are compared to theoretic a l dependences reported earlier by the authors. Conclusions are drawn on the assignment of geometrical and physical, discharge parameters in work using high - intensity magnetic fields.

An experimental investigation of the near-field pattern and integrated emission spectra of stripe-geometry injection lasers is reported. It is shown that self- Q - swltching of the stripe laser output occurs when several transverse lasing modes are excited simultaneously as they interact. Maxima on the envelopes of transverse modes of different order are separated by an interval of the order of 20 A determined by the difference in the excitation thresholds of the modes involved.

Thermal expansion of the α-quartz lattice is compared to expansion induced by fast-neutron bombardment, on the basis of the relationship $∆ν_j/ν_j = = (-γ_j∆V)/V$, where $∆ν_j/ν_j$ is the change in the frequency of normal lattice vibration, ∆V/V is the crystal cubic expansion, $γ_j$ is the Gruneisen constant of the j-th normal lattice vibration (of frequency $ν_j$). It is shown that various normal vibrations introduce different contributions to expansion of the quartz lattice induced by heating or by fast-neutron bombardment.

The temperature dependence of hopping conductivity and thermopower is found, with attention given to interaction between electrons arriving at the same center. It is shown that treatment of repulsive correlation leads to the appearance of Coulomb iterations in the apparent density of states figuring in the conductivity and thermopower. In the case of attraction, exponential temperature dependences are to be expected for the magnetic susceptibility, EPR signal intensity, and conductivity across singly charged centers. A nonactivated process of direct hopping of pairs competing, in the low temperature range, with the conduction mechanism is discussed.

The solution of the problem of how to find the vertical distribution of the mean flowspeed of the near-bottom current propagating along a sloping bottom in a nonmoving lighter liquid is presented for the case where the viscosity is a function of the vertical coordinate, and also for the case where the viscosity remains constant throughout the depth of the liquid. It is shown that depth variation of the viscosity must be taken into account in studying near-bottom currents whose density exceeds the density of the above-lying liquid by more than 5•1О^{-3}g/cm^3, since this change exerts a pronounced effect on the shape of the velocity profile. But if the density difference is less than that figure, the viscosity can be treated as constant in calculating the flow parameters.

The S,Т,Р,V,А-variants of interaction between neutral and charged leptonic currents are investigated, with attention given to polarization effects, and interference between these two modes of current interactions in elastic νe(¯νe)-scattering is also studied. It is shown that scattering with or without changes in the helicity of the neutrino (or antineutrino) is characterized, in the case of a polarized electron target, by a different dependence of cross sections on the variable y=Ee / Eν(Eqs.(lO)-(ll')). The latest experimental data are employed in developing numerical estimates of the coupling constants for antineutrino scattering (¯ν=¯ν_R), and these estimates are found at variance with those predicted in the Weinberg - Salam model.

Transient stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) is investigated. Computer solutions (using the BESM-6 digital computer) are found for a system of nonl inear SRS equations corresponding to a variety of excitation conditions. The possibility of a Raman lasing mode in which pumping breaks down into a sequence of subpulses is demonstrated. The underlying theory is developed. Effects of differences in group velocities on the shape and inertia of the Stokes pulse are discussed.
