The theory of the Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation observed by Cherenkov in 1934 was created by Tamm, Frank and Ginsburg who associated the observed blue light with the uniform charge motion of a charge at a velocity greater than the velocity of light in the medium. On the other hand, Vavilov, Cherenkov's teacher, attributed the observed blue light to the deceleration of electrons. This has given rise to the appearance of papers in which the radiation of a charge uniformly moving in a finite space interval was related to the Bremsstrahlung arising at the end points of the motion interval. This monograph is intended for students of the third year and higher, for postgraduates, for professional scientists (both experimentalists and theoreticians) dealing with Vavilov-Cherenkov and synchrotron radiation. An acquaintance with the three volumes of the Landau and Lifshitz course (Quantum Mechanics, Classical Field Theory and Macroscopic Electrodynamics) is sufficient for understanding the text.

From the reviews:
"The book having nine chapters reviews fundamental physical and mathematical problems of the Vavilov-Cherenkov effect of media. Here the readers could find a discussion of all basic problems of the Vavilov-Cherenkov effect and of synchrotron radiation. ... This book may be useful for advanced graduate students and for professional scientists, both experimentalists and theoreticians." (Oleg A. Sinkevich, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1067 (18), 2005)

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Sep 2004, 2004. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - The importance of the Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation stems from the property that a charge moving uniformly in a medium emits quanta at the angle uniquely related to its energy. This has numerous applications. We mention only the neutrino experiments in which the neutrino energy is estimated by the angle at which the electron originating from the decay of neutrino is observed. This book is intended for students of the third year and higher, for postgraduates, and professional scientists, both experimentalists and th- reticians. The Landau and Lifschitz treatisesQuantumMechanics,Clas- cal Field Theory andElectrodynamicsofContinuousMedia are more than enough for the understanding of the text. There are three monographs devoted to the Vavilov-Cherenkov rad- tion. Jelly s book Cherenkov Radiation and its Applications published in 1958 contains a short theoretical review of the Vavilov-Cherenkov ra- ation and a rather extensive description of experimental technique. Ten years later, the two-volume Zrelov monograph Vavilov-Cherenkov Rad- tionandItsApplicationinHigh-EnergyPhysics appeared. Its rst volume isaquiteextensivereviewofexperimentalandtheoreticalresultsknownup to1968.ThesecondvolumeisdevotedtotheconstructionoftheCherenkov counters.In1988,theFrankmonographVavilov-CherenkovRadiation.T- oretical Aspects was published. It presents mainly a collection of Frank s papers with valuable short commentaries describing their present status. It is highly desirable to translate this book into English. 491 pp. Englisch.
