Most widely held works by L. D Landau
The classical theory of fields by L. D Landau( Book )

167 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated from the 6th Russian edition, this latest edition contains seven new sections with chapters on General Relativity, Gravitational Waves and Relativistic Cosmology, where Professor Lifshitz's interests lay. The text of the 3rd English edition has been thoroughly revised and additional problems inserted
Quantum mechanics, non-relativistic theory by L. D Landau( Book )

130 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition has been completely revised to include some 20% of new material. Important recent developments such as the theory of Regge poles are now included. Many problems with solutions have been added to those already contained in the book
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 three-dimensional 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 three-dimensional 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®
Theory of elasticity by L. D Landau( Book )

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
Statistical physics by L. D Landau( Book )

101 editions published between 1938 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. There is a considerable amount of new material particularly on the theory of the magnetic properties of matter and the theory of optical phenomena with new chapters on spatial dispersion and non-linear optics. The chapters on ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism and on magnetohydrodynamics have been substantially enlarged and eight other chapters have additional sections
General physics : mechanics and molecular physics by L. D Landau( Book )

31 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents, at a level suitable for undergraduates and technical college students, the basic physical theory of mechanics and the molecular structure of matter. The material contained in the work should correspond quite closely to courses of lectures given to undergraduate students of physics in Britain and America
Lectures on nuclear theory by L. D Landau( Book )

46 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is relativity? by L. D Landau( Book )

35 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 714 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 relativity--its funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocks--in a charming way
Collected papers of L.D. Landau by L. D Landau( Book )

25 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collected Papers of L.D. Landau brings together the collected papers of L.D. Landau in the field of physics. The discussion is divided into the following sections: low-temperature physics (including superconductivity); solid-state physics; plasma physics; hydrodynamics; astrophysics; nuclear physics and cosmic rays; quantum mechanics; quantum field theory; and miscellaneous works. Topics covered include the intermediate state of supraconductors; the absorption of sound in solids; the properties of metals at very low temperatures; and production of showers by heavy particles.

" ... 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 fluctuation-dissipation 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
