The first had general aspects of relativistic quantum mechanics and relativistic quantum field theoryleading onto quantum electrodynamics.
Considered to be the founder of a whole school of Soviet theoretical physicists, Landau was honored with numerous awards, including the Lenin Prize, the Max Planck Medal, the Fritz London Prize, and, most notably, the Nobel Prize for Physics, which honored his pioneering work in the field of low-temperature physics and condensed matter, particularly liquid helium.

Covers relativistic mechanics of particles, and classical field lifechitz for fields, specifically special relativity and electromagnetismgeneral relativity and gravitation. Fluid Mechanics discusses several areas of concerns regarding fluid mechanics.
Covers classical mechanics without special or general relativity, in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms. Covers quantum mechanics without special relativity. This page was last edited on 1 Octoberat Fluid MechanicsVolume 6. Physics books Nauka publisher books. Landau did graduate work in physics at Leningrad’s Physiotechnical Institute, at Cambridge University in England, and at the Institute of Theoretical Physics mechanicx Denmark, where he met physicist Neils Bohr, whose work he greatly admired.
The book provides a discussion on the phenomenon in fluid mechanics and their intercorrelations, such as heat transfer, diffusion in fluids, acoustics, theory of combustion, dynamics of superfluids, and relativistic fluid dynamics.
The Lectures and the Man”. In the second edition, the corresponding sections were scrapped and replaced with more topics in the well-established quantum electrodynamics, and the two parts were unified into one, thus providing a one-volume exposition on relativistic quantum field theory with the electromagnetic interaction as the prototype of a quantum field theory.
Course of Theoretical Physics – Wikipedia
Landau’s most notable written work is his Course of Theoretical Physics, an eight-volume set of texts covering the complete range of theoretical physics. Retrieved from ” https: Covers fluid mechanics in a condensed but varied exposition, from ideal to viscous fluids, includes a chapter on relativistic fluid mechanics, and another on superfluids.
Pedagogy and the Practice of Science: The second continued on with quantum electrodynamics and what was then known about the strong and weak interactions.
He was unable to work again, and spent the remainder of his years, until his death inbattling health problems resulting from the accident.
