Lev
Davidovich Landau and his Impact on Contemporary
Theoretical Physics (Horizons in World Physics, Volume 264)
ISBN:
9781606929087 Hardcopy
For the centenary of the great theoretical physicist Lev
Landau (19081968), the Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics (EJTP)
published with the Nova
Science Publishers a special project dedicated to the modern development
and reflections of Landau’s legacy.
Book Description:
This new book is dedicated to the memory of the Nobel laureate
and the great theoretical physicist Lev Davidovich
Landau (1908–1968) on the occasion of his centenary. This book brings
together fifteen papers contributed by authors from different countries:
China, India, Italy, Germany, Mexico, Russia, and USA, covering several
core aspects of modern development of Landau legacy and achievements,
ranging from Landau's bibliography and life to recent rigorous research on
theoretical physics. In his paper entitled "Lev Landau, the Genius
that Challenged Stalin," Toscano discusses
Landau’s life, his influence on theoretical physics in the Soviet Union,
and his challenge to Stalin. Kholodenko discusses
extensively the impact of the Landau's last paper on physics and
mathematics in the new millennium based on Golubeva's
famous paper. In his esteemed paper, Sachs presents the philosophical
problems of cosmology and time. In their seminal papers, Brandt, Esposito, Salesi, Ma, Wang, and Kleinert
review different aspects of Ginzburg–Landau
theory, phase transitions, and superconductors. In their remarkable paper
on Landau–Lifshits equation, Parga
and Gallardo address the importance of this equation and its applications
to classical charge particles. Azam, Basu, Dhar, and Li discuss
extensively the Landau singularity in QED, Landau quantization, and noncommutative Landau problem, and other related
topics. Rasetti and Raffa
report on the multiboson Logical operators,
Laughlin states, and Virasoro algebra. Chakraborty in his paper shows the influence of Landau
approach to the theory of fluid dynamics.
