Mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
111 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,949 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

27 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 703 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 relativityits funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocksin a charming way
