Course of Theoretical Physics by Landau and Lifshitz books pdf DownloadThe aim of the course is to expose senior undergraduate students to Theoretical Mechanics. We will mainly follow the classical textbook by Landau and Lifshitz. At the end of the course students should be able to solve typical mechanics problems by themselves. We will start with Lagrangian Mechanics, which is related to the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. We continue with Conservation Laws and their relation to space-time symmetries Noether's theorem. A thorough treatment of the Kepler Problem, which is at the cradle of modern science, follows.

Physics Landau , E. Late homework will not be accepted. Download this info in PDF format. This is a tentative schedule of what we will cover in the course. It is subject to change, often without notice. These will occur in response to the speed with which we cover material, individual class interests, and possible changes in the topics covered.
Devoted to the foundation of mechanics, namely classical Newtonian mechanics, the subject is based mainly on Galileo's principle of relativity and Hamilton's principle of least action. The exposition is simple and leads to the most complete direct means of solving problems in mechanics. The final sections on adiabatic invariants have been revised and augmented. In addition a short biography of L D Landau has been inserted. For final year undergraduates, postgraduates, and research workers in theoretical physics and physics.
