The Classical Theory of Fields. Revised Second Edition. Translated by Morton Hamermesh.
by LANDAU, Lev Davidovich (1908-1968); LIFSHITZ, Evgeny Mikhailovich (1915-1985).
Oxford:: Pergamon Press, 1962., 1962. Series: Course of Theoretical Physics, Vol. 2. 8vo. ix, , 404 pp. Index. Crimson and yellow printed gray cloth; rubbed. Book label of Richard Weiss. Very good. Landau won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1962 for his mathematical theory of superfluidity. The Classical Theory of Fields is part of Landau and Lifshitz' 10 volume Course of Theoretical Physics, widely considered the gold-standard of advanced physics textbooks. Landau supposedly composed much of the series' material in his head while interred at an NKVD prison in 1938-1939. "This book is devoted to the presentation of the theory of the electromagnetic and gravitational fields. In accordance with the general plan of our "Course of Theoretical Physics", we exclude from this volume problems of the electrodynamics of continuous media, and restrict the exposition to "microscopic electrodynamics", the electrodynamics of the vacuum and of point charges." – From the preface to the second edition.
