Mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
114 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,986 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

Fluid mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
106 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,953 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®

88 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,774 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

Electrodynamics of continuous media by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
81 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Covers the theory of electromagnetic fields in matter, and the theory of the macroscopic electric and magnetic properties of matter.

" ... 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 ...
