Mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
29 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 617 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

17 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This present volume of our Theoretical Physics deals with the theory of elasticity. Being written by physicists, and primarily for physicists, it naturally includes not only the ordinary theory of the deformation of solids, but also some topics not usually found in textbooks on the subjects, such as thermal conduction and viscosity in solids, and various problems in the theory of elastic vibration and waves."Authors, 'Preface to the First English Edition

Problems of linear electron (polaron) transport theory in semiconductors by
Michael I Klinger(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Problems of Linear Electron (Polaron) Transport Theory in Semiconductors summarizes and discusses the development of areas in electron transport theory in semiconductors, with emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the theory and the essential physical nature of the transport processes. The book is organized into three parts. Part I focuses on some general topics in the theory of transport phenomena: the general dynamical theory of linear transport in dissipative systems (Kubo formulae) and the phenomenological theory. Part II deals with the theory of polaron transport in a crystalline semicon

Fluid mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
33 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds up from the fundamentals, often in a general way, to widespread applications, to technology and geophysics. New to this second edition are discussions on the universal dimensions similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations and on the generalized vector field derivatives. In addition, new material on the generalized streamfunction treatment shows how streamfunction may be used in threedimensional flows. Finally, a new Computational Fluid Dynamics chapter enables compulations of some simple flows and provides entry to more advanced literature. *Basic introduction to the subject of fluid mechanics, intended for undergraduate and beginning graduate students of science and engineering. *Includes topics of special interest for geophysicists and to engineers. *New and generalized treatment of similar laminar boundary layers, streamfunctions for threedimensional flows, vector field derivatives, and gas dynamics. Also a new generalized treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics, and expanded treatment of viscous flows.  taken from Amazon.com®

Quantum mechanics by
L. D Landau(
)
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum Mechanics deals with various aspects of quantum mechanics and covers topics ranging from the uncertainty principle and the principle of superposition to conservation laws, Schrödinger's equation, and perturbation theory. Spin, radiation, and the identity of particles are also discussed, along with the atom, the diatomic molecule, elastic and inelastic collisions, and Feynman diagrams. Comprised of 16 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of nonrelativistic quantum theory and the basic concepts of quantum mechanics such as the principles of uncertainty and superposition, operators, and the density matrix. Subsequent chapters deal with conservation laws in quantum mechanics; Schrödinger's equation and general properties of its solutions; perturbations independent of time and dependent on time; spin and the spin operator; and the principle of indistinguishability of similar particles. The atom and its electron states are also examined, together with diatomic molecules; elastic and inelastic collisions; photons and electrons; Dirac's equation; and particles and antiparticles. The final chapter is devoted to Feynman diagrams, paying particular attention to the scattering matrix, radiative corrections, and radiative shift of atomic levels. This book will be of interest to physicists

Landau, the physicist and the man : recollections of L.D. Landau(
)
5 editions published in 1989 in English and Slave and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The name of Lev Davidovich Landau is widely known as that of one of the greatest twentiethcentury physicists. A brilliant teacher to those pupils he carefully chose, notoriously controversial in his outlook and opinions, the combination of his outstanding intellect and striking personality brought him almost legendary fame. This volume contains letters, papers and recollections by friends and pupils, describing Landau's views of science, culture and life, and provides the reader with a vivid portrait of a remarkable man
