Mechanics by L. D Landau ( Book )
81 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Devoted to the foundation of mechanics, namely classical Newtonian mechanics, the subject is based mainly on Galileo's principle of relativity and Hamilton's principle of least action. The exposition is simple and leads to the most complete direct means of solving problems in mechanics.The final sections on adiabatic invariants have been revised and augmented. In addition a short biography of L D Landau has been inserted
Theory of elasticity by L. D Landau ( Book )
78 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A comprehensive textbook covering not only the ordinary theory of the deformation of solids, but also some topics not usually found in textbooks on the subject, such as thermal conduction and viscosity in solids
Fluid mechanics by L. D Landau ( Book )

Volume 8
What is relativity? by L. D Landau ( Book )
42 editions published between 1960 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 relativity--its funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocks--in a charming way

Part 2 of Statistical physics begins with an extensive discussion of the theory of quantum liquids, which was dealt with briefly in the second edition of Statistical physics, by Lev Landau and E.M. Lifshitz; part 1 of Statistical physics is now the third edition of volume 5 of the Course of theoretical physics, by L.D. Landau and E.M. Lifshitz
