1. Classical mechanics of mass points and theory of elasticity - the Newton laws and the Hooke law in diverse situations.

2. Phonons in solids as collective excitations - vibrations of systems of mass points, the phonon dispersion law in one-dimensional models, localized phonon modes in systems with perturbed translational invariance.

3. Statistical properties of simple systems - classical and quantum electric and magnetic dipole moments interacting with an external field, interaction of the moments in a molecular-field approximation, susceptibility, specific heat.
