Most widely held works by L. D Landau
Quantum mechanics, non-relativistic 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
The classical theory of fields by L. D Landau( Book )

211 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2
Theory of elasticity by L. D Landau( Book )

118 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,762 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 )

123 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 6

Volume 8
Lehrbuch der theoretischen Physik by L. D Landau( Book )

244 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General physics : mechanics and molecular physics by L. D Landau( Book )

46 editions published between 1965 and 1970 in 5 languages and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents, at a level suitable for undergraduates and technical college students, the basic physical theory of mechanics and the molecular structure of matter. The material contained in the work should correspond quite closely to courses of lectures given to undergraduate students of physics in Britain and America
Lectures on nuclear theory by L. D Landau( Book )

45 editions published between 1952 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is relativity? by L. D Landau( Book )

32 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 725 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
Relativistic quantum theory by V. B Berestet︠s︡kiĭ( Book )

43 editions published between 1948 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collected papers of L.D. Landau by L. D Landau( Book )

32 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collected Papers of L.D. Landau brings together the collected papers of L.D. Landau in the field of physics. The discussion is divided into the following sections: low-temperature physics (including superconductivity); solid-state physics; plasma physics; hydrodynamics; astrophysics; nuclear physics and cosmic rays; quantum mechanics; quantum field theory; and miscellaneous works. Topics covered include the intermediate state of supraconductors; the absorption of sound in solids; the properties of metals at very low temperatures; and production of showers by heavy particles. This volume is c
Classical field theory by Walter E Thirring( Book )

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 four-semester 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 one-semester 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
Quantenmechanik : mit 20 Tabellen by L. D Landau( Book )

41 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in German and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Český překlad byl pořízen podle 2. přepracovaného sovětského vydání a představuje jeden z nejobsáhlejších přehledů kvantové mechaniky. V práci autor přihlíží k novým metodám kvantové mechaniky a klade důraz na výkladfyzikálních základů a matematického aparátu kvantové teorie nerelativistického a kvazirelativistického pohybu částic ve vnějším poli, zabývá se teorií reprezentací, teorií kanonických transformací, teorií rozptylu a kvantovýchpřechodů apod
Men of physics: L.D. Landau by L. D Landau( Book )

31 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume contains twelve papers: one on the theory of phase transitions, one on stellar energy, one on the statistical model of nuclei, one on the multiple production of particles in cosmic rays, one on the uncertainty principle in relativistic quantum mechanics, two on the quantum theory of collisions, two on plasma physics, and three on field theory
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
