Mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in English and Undetermined 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

18 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 3 languages 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 231 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

" ... New sections have been added on the magnetic properties of gases, the thermodynamics of a degenerate plasma, liquid crystals, the fluctuation theory of phase transitions of the second kind, and critical phenomena. The chapters on solids and on the symmetry of crystals have been substantially enlarged, in particular by a fuller account of the theory of irreducible representations of space groups as applied to the physics of the crystal state. The sections on the fluctuationdissipation theorem have been revised and extended. Some sections have been removed from the book, dealing with the theory of quantum liquids and the related theory of almost ideal degenerate gases ... [the theory of quantum liquids] will appear ... in another volume of this course ..."Preface

Quantum mechanics by
L. D Landau(
)
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition: Nonrelativistic Theory is devoted to nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. The theory of the addition of angular momenta, collision theory, and the theory of symmetry are examined, together with spin, nuclear structure, motion in a magnetic field, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. This book is comprised of 18 chapters and begins with an introduction to the basic concepts of quantum mechanics, with emphasis on the uncertainty principle, the principle of superposition, and operators, as well as the continuous spectrum and the wave function. The following chapters explore energy and momentum; Schrödinger's equation; angular momentum; and motion in a centrally symmetric field and in a magnetic field. Perturbation theory, spin, and the properties of quasiclassical systems are also considered. The remaining chapters deal with the identity of particles, atoms, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. The final two chapters describe elastic and inelastic collisions. This monograph will be a valuable source of information for physicists

Landau, the physicist and the man : recollections of L.D. Landau(
)
5 editions published in 1989 in English and Slave and held by 63 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
