Collected Papers of L. D. Landau by D. Ter Haar

By D. Ter Haar

Gathered Papers of L. D. Landau brings jointly the accumulated papers of L. D. Landau within the box of physics. The dialogue is split into the next sections: low-temperature physics (including superconductivity); solid-state physics; plasma physics; hydrodynamics; astrophysics; nuclear physics and cosmic rays; quantum mechanics; quantum box conception; and miscellaneous works. issues coated contain the intermediate nation of supraconductors; the absorption of sound in solids; the houses of metals at very low temperatures; and creation of showers through heavy debris.
This quantity is made out of a hundred chapters and starts off with Landau's paper at the conception of the spectra of diatomic molecules, via his reports at the damping challenge in wave mechanics; quantum electrodynamics in configuration house; electron movement in crystal lattices; and the inner temperature of stars. a few of Landau's theories, similar to these of stars, strength move on collisions, part transitions, and particular warmth anomalies are mentioned. next chapters specialize in the constitution of the undisplaced scattering line; the delivery equation with regards to Coulomb interactions; scattering of sunshine via gentle; and the starting place of stellar power.
This booklet should be a helpful source for physicists in addition to physics scholars and researchers.

Principles of Continuum Mechanics: A Study of Conservation Principles with Applications

As newest applied sciences aren't any longer discipline-specific yet contain multidisciplinary techniques, undergraduate engineering scholars could be brought to the rules of mechanics so they have a powerful history within the easy ideas universal to all disciplines and may be able to paintings on the interface of technology and engineering disciplines.

Example text

THE EKLIPTIKA CIRCLE Bohr was enrolled at the University in the summer of 1903 after passing the examination with which the program of "gymnasium" ("studentereksamen") culminates in the spring. As a freshman Bohr began studying physics under Professor Christian Christiansen, a study which continued until 1909 when he received his master of physics degree. Over the following two years he · submitted and defended his doctoral dissertation at the University, and in 1911-12 he spent a year in England doing post-doctoral research in Cambridge and Manchester.

5 The meetings were started in order to discuss HI/lffding's seminars and lectures in philosophy, perhaps in the spring of 1905. Slomann has clearly stated that the gatherings of Ekliptika began in 1905. Rubin, who as we have heard was the prime mover of the circle, had, at any rate, by the summer of 1904 matriculated at the University, the same year in which Harald Bohr and Vilhelm Slomann did; but HI/Sffding did not give a course in propaedeutic philosophy in the academic year 1904-05, as has been claimed.

This "propaedeutic philosophy" (or "Filosofikum" as it is called in Danish) was usually taken during the student's ftrst year at the University. It has been generally assumed that the only training in philosophy Bohr received was this elementary course. However, I shall here try to establish the claim that Bohr also attended some of Hi1Sffding's more advanced lectures and seminars on various philosophical topics. In the autumn of 1903 and the spring of 1904 Hi1Sffding taught the mandatory propaedeutic philosophy course which Bohr attended, and later on a group of students, who attended Hi1Sffding's public lectures and seminars, began to meet regularly after these classes in order to continue discussions of the various subjects.
