Most widely held works by L. D Landau
The classical theory of fields by L. D Landau( Book )
169 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,524 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 )
167 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 2,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Statistical physics by L. D Landau( Book )
161 editions published between 1938 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A lucid presentation of statistical physics and thermodynamics which develops from the general principles to give a large number of applications of the theory
Mechanics by 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
Theory of elasticity by L. D Landau( Book )
82 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A comprehensive textbook covering not only the ordinary theory of the deformation of solids, but also some topics not usually found in textbooks on the subject, such as thermal conduction and viscosity in solids
Fluid mechanics by L. D Landau( Book )
100 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Volume 6
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 non-linear optics. The chapters on ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism and on magnetohydrodynamics have been substantially enlarged and eight other chapters have additional sections
What is relativity? by L. D Landau( Book )
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 relativity--its funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocks--in a charming way
Lectures on nuclear theory by L. D Landau( Book )
30 editions published between 1958 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
General physics : mechanics and molecular physics by L. D Landau( Book )
20 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in 3 languages and held by 770 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
Relativistic quantum theory by V. B Berestet︠s︡kiĭ( Book )
4 editions published between 1971 and 1974 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

22 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 410 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. This volume is c
