Quantum mechanics, nonrelativistic theory by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
725 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 6,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Devoted to the foundation of mechanics, namely classical Newtonian mechanics, this mechanics text is based mainly on Galileo's principle of relativity and Hamilton's principle of least action. The exposition is simple and leads to a complete and direct means of solving problems in mechanics

Here two Russian theoretical physicists give a lighthearted presentation of the special theory of relativity. It is so simply written that the reader needs no technical knowledge beyond arithmetic. Their witty text, illustrated by a series of Russian cartoons, explains the paradoxes of relativityits funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocksin a charming way

Classical field theory by
Walter E Thirring(

)
42 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook presents mathematical physics in its chronological order. It originated in a foursemester course I offered to both mathematicians and physicists, who were only required to have taken the conventional intro ductory courses. In order to be able to cover a suitable amount of advanced materil;ll for graduate students, it was necessary to make a careful selection of topics. I decided to cover only those subjects in which one can work from the basic laws to derive physically relevant results with full mathematical rigor. Models which are not based on realistic physical laws can at most serve as illustrations of mathematical theorems, and theories whose pre dictions are only related to the basic principles through some uncontrollable approximation have been omitted. The complete course comprises the following onesemester lecture series: I. Classical Dynamical Systems II. Classical Field Theory III. Quantum Mechanics of Atoms and Molecules IV. Quantum Mechanics of Large Systems Unfortunately, some important branches of physics, such as the rela tivistic quantum theory, have not yet matured from the stage of rules for calculations to mathematically well understood disciplines, and are there fore not taken up. The above selection does not imply any value judgment, but only attempts to be logically and didactically consistent. General mathematical knowledge is assumed, at the level of a beginning graduate student or advanced undergraduate majoring in physics or mathe matics

Landau, a great physicist and teacher by
Anna Livanova(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in 4 languages and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A biography of Lev Landau, one of the greatest Soviet theoretical physicists, whose career was cut short by a catastrophic car accident in 1962 and who was still only sixty when he died six years later. He won the Nobel Prize 'for pioneering work on the theory of the condensed state of matter, particularly liquid helium'. But the book shows that Landau's characterisation of himself as 'one of the last of the universal men of theoretical physics' was fully justified. Clearly and concisely it describes his achievements in all areas of theoretical physics from hydrodynamics to the quantum theor
