Conditions of applicability of the results of the hydrodynamics of a perfect gas to disperse media
Our work together on these books began in the late s and continued until the tragic accident that befell him in It was this aim which he sought to instil into his pupils, and which has determined the character of the Course. It has been my good fortune to find a colleague for this work in L. Pitaevskii, a younger pupil of Landau's. The present edition contains the biography of Landau which I wrote in for the posthumous Russian edition of his Collected Works.
I should like to hope that it will give the reader some slight idea of the personality 'lf that remarkable man. Hamermesh in and continued by Dr. Sykes and his colleagues. From that distance we perceive more clearly not only his greatness as a scientist, the significance of whose work becomes increasingly obvious with time, but also that he was a great-hearted human being.
He was uncommonly just and benevolent. There is no doubt that therein lie the roots of his popularity as a scientist and teacher, the roots of that genuine love and esteem which his direct and indirect pupils felt for him and which were manifested with such exceptional strength during the days of the struggle to save his life following the terrible accident. Institute of Physical ProblemsTo him fell the tragic fate of dying twice.
The epic story of the subsequent struggle to save his life is primarily a story of the selfless labour and skill of numerous physicians and nurses. But it is also a story of a remarkable feat of solidarity. The calamitous accident agitated the entire community of physicists, arousing a spontaneous and instant response.

An alphabetical list of the telephone numbers and addresses of any one and any institution with which contact might be needed at any instant was compiled, and it contained telephone numbers!
It included other hospitals, motor transport bases, airports, customs offices, pharmacies, ministries, and the places at which consulting physicians could most likely be reached. This was unnecessary and naive, but ho'h amazingly spontaneous! The physicists obtained the machine from the Institute for the Study of Poliomyelitis and carried it in their own hands to the ward where Landau was gasping for breath.
They saved their colleague, teacher, and friend. This was a real fraternity of physicists But when after three months he regained consciousness, it was no longer the same man whom we had known. He was not able to recover from all the consequences of his accident and never again completely regained his abilities. The story of the stx years that followed is only a story of prolonged suffering and pain. His mother was a physician and at one time had engaged in scientific work on physiology.
He completed his school course at the age of Even then he already was attracted by the exact sciences, and his mathematical ability manifested itself very early. His parents considered him too young to enter a university and for a year he attended the Baku Economic Technicum. In he enrolled at Baku C niversity where he studied simultaneously in two departments: Physico-mathematical and Chemical.
Subsequently he did not continue his chemical education but he remained interested in chemistry throughout his life. G Literary Gazette , 21 July rom D. In Leningrad, the main centre of Soviet physics at that time, he first made the acquaintance of genuine theoretical physics, which was then going through a turbulent period. He devoted himself to its study with all his youthful zeal and enthusiasm and worked so strenuously that often he became so exhausted that at night he could not sleep, still turning over formulae in his mind.
Later he used to describe how at that time he was amazed by the incredible beauty of the general theory of relativity sometimes he even would declare that such a rapture on first making one's acquaintance with this theory should be a characteristic of any born theoretical physicist. He also described the state of ecstasy to which he was brought on reading the articles by Heisenberg and Schrodinger signalling the birth of the new quantum mechanics.
He said that he derived from them not only delight in the true glamour of science but also an acute realization of the power of the human genius, whose greatest triumph is that man is capable of apprehending things beyond the pale of his imagination. And of course, the curvature of space-time and the uncertainty principle are precisely of this kind. In Landau graduated from the university and enrolled for postgraduate studv at th6 Leningrad Physicotechnical Institute where even earlier, in , he had been a part-time research student.
These year:; brought his first scientific publications. In he published a theory of intensities in the spectra of diatomic molecules [1 ],t and as early as , a study of the problem of damping in quantum mechanics, which first introduced a description of the state of a system with the aid of the density matrix.
His fascination with physics and his first achievements as a scientist were, however, at the time beclouded by a painful diffidence in his relations with others. This trait caused him a great deal of suffering and at times -as he himself confessed in later years -led him to despair.
The changes which occurred in him with the years and transformed him into a bu-oyant and gregarious individual were largely a result of his characteristic self-discipline and feeling of duty toward himself. These qualities, together with his sober and self-critical mind, enabled him to train himself and to evolve into a person with a rare ability -the ability to be happy.
The same sobriety of mind enabled him always to distinguish between what is of real value in life and what is unimportant triviality, and thus also to retain his mental equilibrium during the difficult moments which occurred in his life too.
In , on an assignment from the People's Commissariat of Education, Landau travelled abroad and for one and a half years worked in Denmark, Great Britain and Switzerland. To him the most important part of his trip was his stay in Copenhagen where, at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, t He did not k. This scientific atmosphere, enhanced by the charm of the personality of Bohr himself, decisively influenced Landau in forming his own outlook on physics and subsequently he always considered himself a disciple of Niels Bohr.
He visited Copenhagen two more times, in and Landau's sojourn abroad was the occasion, in particular, of his work on the theory of the diamagnetism of an electron gas  and the study of the limitations imposed on the measurability of physical quantities in the relativistic quantum region in collaboration with Peierls . Twentieth-century theoretical physics is rich in illustrious names of trail-blazing creators, and Landau was one of these creators.
But his influence on scientific progress was far from exhausted by his personal contribution to it. He was not only an outstanding physicist but also a genuinely outstanding educator, a born educator.
In this respect one may take the liberty of comparing Landau only to his own teacher-Niels Bohr. The problems of the teaching of theoretical physics as well as of physics as a whole had first attracted his interest while still quite a young man.
It was there, in Khar'kov, that he first began to work out programmes for the "theoretical minimum"-programmes of the basic knowledge in theoretical physics needed by experimental physicists and by those who wish to devote themselves to professional research work in theoretical physics.
In addition to drafting these programmes, he gave lectures on theoretical physics to the scientific staff at the Ukrainian Physicotechnical Institute as well as to students of the Physics and Mechanics Faculty. All his life long, Landau dreamed of writing books on physics at every level -from school textbooks to a course of theoretical physics for specialists.
In fact, by the time of his fateful accident, nearly all the volumes of the Course of Theoretical Physics and the first volumes of the Course of General Physics and Physics for Everyone had been completed. He also had drafted plans for the compilation of textbooks on mathematics for physicists, which should he "a guide to action", should instruct in the practical applications of mathematics to physics, and should be free of the rigours and complexities unnecessary to this course.
He did not have time to begin to translate this programme into reality. Landau always attached great importance to the mastering of mathematical techniques by the theoretical physicist. The degree of this mastery should be such that, insofar as possible, mathematical complications would not distract attention from the physical difficulties of the problem -at least whenever standard mathematical techniques are concerned. This can be achieved only by sufficient training. Yet experience shows that the current style and programmes for university instruction in mathematics for physicists often do not ensure such training.
EJfperience also shows that after a physicist commences his independent research activity he finds the study of mathematics too "boring". Therefore, the first test which Landau gave to anyone who desired to become one of his students was a quiz in mathematics in its "practical" calculational aspects. In Landau's opinion, this basic knowledge should be mastered by any theoretician regardless of his future specialization. Of course, he did not expect anyone to be as universally well-versed in science as he himself.
But he thus manifested his belief in the integrity of theoretical physics as a single science with unified methods. At first Landau himself gave the examination for the "theoretical minimum".
Subsequently, after the number of applicants became too large, this duty was shared with his closest associates. But Landau always ret The requirements were: ability to evaluate any indefinite integral that can be expressed in terms of elementary functions and to solve any ordinary differential equation of the standard type, knowledge of vector analysis and tensor algebra as well as of the principles of the theory of functions of a complex variable theory of residues, Laplace method.
It was assumed that such fields as tensor analysis and group theory would be studied together with the fields of theoretical physics to which they apply.
Anyone could meet him -it was sufficient to ring him up and ask him for an interview. Of course, not every one who began to study the "theoretical minimum" had sufficient ability and persistence to complete it. Altogether, between and, 43 persons passed this test. The effectiveness of this selection can he perceived from the follmYing indicative facts alone: of these persons 7 already have become members of the Acadenw of Sciences and an additional 16, doctors of sciences. There he remained to the end of his life; in this Institute, which became a home to him, his varied activity reached its full flowering.
It was there, in a remarkable interaction with experimental research, that Landau created what may be the outstanding accomplishment of his scientific life -the theory of quantum fluids. It was there also that he received the numerous outward manifesta!
He was awarded a number of orders including two Orders of Lenin and the honorific title of Hero of Socialist Labour -a reward for both his scientific accomplishments and his contribution to the implementation of important practical State tasks. He was awarded the State Prize three times and in , the Lenin Prize.
There also was no lack of honorific awards from other countries.

Сидит тридцать шесть часов подряд. Бедняга. Наверное, жена сказала ему не возвращаться домой. Я слышал, она его уже достала. Мидж задумалась.
Итальянец посмотрел на деньги, потом на свою спутницу. Девушка схватила деньги и сунула их в вырез блузки.
Человек не выпускал его из рук. - Да хватит тебе, Эдди! - Но, посмотрев в зеркало, он убедился, что это вовсе не его закадычный дружок. Лицо в шрамах и следах оспы. Два безжизненных глаза неподвижно смотрят из-за очков в тонкой металлической оправе. Человек наклонился, и его рот оказался у самого уха двухцветного.
Да. Немало. - В Севилью - по делам? - настаивал Ролдан.
Очевидно, получалась бессмыслица. Желая помочь, Беккер обратил их внимание на то, что все показанные ему иероглифы объединяет нечто общее - они одновременно являются и иероглифами кандзи.
Она смотрела на него с недоумением. - Надеюсь, это не уловка с целью заставить меня скинуть платье. - Мидж, я бы никогда… - начал он с фальшивым смирением. - Знаю, Чед. Мне не нужно напоминать.
