The presentation of material is advanced and typically considered suitable for graduate-level study.

Covers relativistic mechanics of particles, and classical field theory for fields, specifically special relativity and electromagnetismgeneral relativity and gravitation. Lifshitz ElsevierDec 18, – Science – pages 2 Reviews https: Pedagogy and the Practice of Science: He enrolled in the University of Baku a year later, inand later transferred to the University of Leningrad, from which he graduated with a degree in physics.

This was the first occasion on which the Lenin Prize had been awarded for the teaching of physics. Important recent developments such as the lansau of Regge poles are now included.

This page was last edited on 1 Octoberat Unfortunately, Landau’s wife and son had to accept the Nobel Prize for him; Landau had been seriously injured in a car crash several months earlier and never completely recovered. The original edition was two books, labelled part 1 and part 2. A brilliant student, he had finished secondary school by the age of Covers general statistical mechanics and thermodynamics and applications, including chemical reactionsphase transitionsand condensed matter physics.

Quantum Mechanics

Presents various applications of kinetic theory to condensed matter theory, on metals, insulators, and phase transitions. 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 mechancis electromagnetic interaction as the prototype of a quantum field theory.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. He was unable to work again, and spent the remainder of his years, until his death inbattling health problems resulting from the accident. Covers classical mechanics without special or general relativity, in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms.
