Fortov collects lectures, papers, reports, and other material from his work in equations of state, the physics of extreme states, physical mechanics, and substance structure. He covers phase states of matter and their classification, equations of state of gases and liquids, quantum mechanical models of a solid, plasma thermodynamics, Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics methods, the statistical substance model, the density functional method, semi-empirical equations of state, relativistic plasma: wide-range description, nuclear transformations under strong compression, quark-gluon plasma and strange matter, and semi-empiric nuclear models.
