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

146 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the dog he is caring for runs away from Alan into the forbidden garden of a retired dog-hating magician, a spell seems to be cast over the contrary dog
Quantum mechanics, non-relativistic theory by L. D Landau( Book )

141 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,116 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. (A cura dell'editore)
Statistical physics by L. D Landau( Book )

118 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,038 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 )

102 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,914 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
Fluid mechanics by L. D Landau( Book )

137 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,794 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 )

74 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 1,718 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 )

69 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,518 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 )

29 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 811 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 )

44 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

30 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 703 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
