**The basic paradoxes of statistical classical physics and quantum mechanics**

by

**Oleg Kupervasser**-

**arXiv**

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.
