Statistical physics by L. D Landau( Book )

45 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Mechanics by L. D Landau( Book )

28 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 116 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

Dynamics of stellar systems by K. F Ogorodnikov( Book )

3 editions published between 1965 and 1968 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamics of Stellar Systems discusses the basic principles that support stellar dynamics. The book is comprised of 10 chapters that present the general principles on which it is based and how the modern conceptions of motions in stellar systems can be derived. The text first discusses the fundamentals concepts of stellar statistics, and then proceeds to detailing the kinematics of stellar systems. The next chapter covers the elementary theory of galactic rotation. Next, the book tackles the irregular forces in stellar systems. Chapter V talks about the statistical stellar dynamics neglecting e
