Pedagogy and the Practice of Science: 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 mechanis matter, particularly liquid helium.

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. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A brilliant student, he had finished secondary school alndau the age of The Lectures and the Man”.

Covers elasticity theory of solids, including viscous solids, vibrations and waves in crystals with dislocationsand a chapter on the mechanics of liquid crystals.

He enrolled in the University of Baku a year later, inand later transferred to the University of Leningrad, from which he graduated with a lischitz in physics. Access Online via Elsevier Amazon.

The series is often referred to as ” Landau and Lifshitz “, ” Landafshitz ” Russian: The series has been called “renowned” in Science and “celebrated” in American Scientist. The last two volumes were written in the early s.

Vladimir Berestetskii and Lev Pitaevskii also contributed to the series. Fluid Mechanics discusses several areas of concerns regarding fluid mechanics. 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 This was the first occasion on which the Lenin Prize had been awarded for the teaching of physics.
