The classical theory of fields by L. D Landau( Book )

135 editions published between 1951 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 2,431 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 )

110 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

99 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,945 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 )

95 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,922 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®
Physical kinetics by E. M Lifshit︠s︡( )

59 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is mainly concerned with a systematic development of the theory of plasmas, the authority being firmly rooted in the pioneering work of Landau. Corresponding results are also given for partially ionized plasmas, relativistic plasmas, degenerate or non-ideal plasmas and solid state plasmas
Theory of elasticity by L. D Landau( Book )

79 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,762 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 )

95 editions published between 1938 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electrodynamics of continuous media by L. D Landau( Book )

71 editions published between 1960 and 2008 in English and German and held by 1,520 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 )

22 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in 3 languages and held by 777 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

26 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several significant additions have been made to the second edition, including the operator method of calculating the bremsstrahlung cross-section, the calcualtion of the probabilities of photon-induced pair production and photon decay in a magnetic field, the asymptotic form of the scattering amplitudes at high energies, inelastic scattering of electrons by hadrons, and the transformation of electron-positron pairs into hadrons

53 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... 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

Evgenii Mikhailovich Lifshitz is perhaps best known for his long association with his mentor Lev D Landau, with whom he co-wrote the classic Course of Theoretical Physics, but he was a noted and respected Soviet physicist in his own right. Born in the Ukraine to a scientific family, his long and distinguished career will be remembered for three things - his collaboration with Landau on the internationally acclaimed Course of Theoretical Physics, his work as editor of the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics, and his scientific papers. As well as his work with Landau, E\M\Lifshitz collaborated with many noted Soviet scientists such as I\M\Khalatnikov, I\E\Dyzaloshinskii, V\V\Sudakov, V\A\Belinskii and the editor of this book, L\P\Pitaevskii. Many of the papers presented in this book include their contribution. Collected together they give a comprehensive and penetrating insight into the man and his work, clearly showing Lifshitz's contribution to physics and the influences on his work
