Mechanics

L. D Landau(
Book
)
86 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,857 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

Electrodynamics of continuous media
by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
98 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,600 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 nonlinear optics. The chapters on ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism and on magnetohydrodynamics have been substantially enlarged and eight other chapters have additional sections

56 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 868 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
